While trying to track down the author of a LaTeX package with some licensing issues for Debian, I came across a page of FAQ's about a school in France. As I was using Google to translate the site, some of them were pretty amusing. The best were
- How to choose my die? (Comment présenter ma demande?)
- Is environment with the permanent competition? (L'ambiance est à la compétition permanente?)
- I intended to speak about the adhesives, it is what? (J'ai entendu parler des colles, c'est quoi?)
- Can one redouble? (Peut-on redoubler?)
Meanwhile, I made the mistake (?) of upgrading my work machine from Red Hat 7.3 to Red Hat 9. Advantages include pretty GNOME 2, but disadvantages include various things that used to work fine—printing, web server, building RPMs—no longer working as expected. At least the Nvidia drivers work with the latest Red Hat kernel—I'm dreading upgrading my Debian machine at home.
For those thinking that I've forsaken the folds of the Debian project, I just bought some nice Debian belogoed items from the folks at Openstuff.net, inspired by a plug from the Debian Tenth Birthday page, which is Friday, September 16. Of course I haven't actually seen these things yet, but they look good on the site.
