| This is your faithful correspondent, reporting from LinuxConf Australia (LCA) 
| in Hobart, Tasmania, where it's been an eventful week packed with Linux

"I’d be glad to help tilt lotus into into the death spiral. I could do it
Friday afternoon but not Saturday. I could do it pretty much any time the
following week."

| bottles from delegate hotel rooms to be recycled into casing for machines
| built as part of the OLPC project.

| capitol of the Australian state Tasmania. That's where Linux.conf.au 2009 is
| being held through Saturday, January 24.


LCA2009: Going the Satellite route with Red Hat

,----[ Quote ]
| The company in question is Red Hat; its revenue went up 22 percent in the
| third US quarter, with earnings going up by 20 percent. Those are certainly
| figures that no-one would sneeze at.
| Hence, it was to be expected that Richard Keech, who works for Red Hat
| locally as principal consultant, would be wearing a grin on his face when I
| met him to discuss the talk he gave at the Australian national Linux
| conference in Hobart.


LCA2009: That mysterious thing called the kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| Corbet pointed out that maintaining code outside the mainline kernel was
| expensive; if code made it to this kernel, the one that is handled by
| Torvalds, then the chances of it being in every distribution were very good.
