flumotion release

6500 lines of changelog. 471 files changed. 28808 lines of source code changed. 88 bugs fixed and enhancement requests closed. This is quite a big release!

It took me a whole day of social hacking to get a Flumotion release out, and I had already finished the release notes the week before. Make my effort worthwhile and go and read them, they possess mild entertainment value.

My last post was the 200th since I started interweb-writing back in May of 2002. Base-ten wraparounds conventionally lead to a taking of stock. Here we are.

If belly-button lint appreciation is not to your taste, I advise the kind reader to press the "back" button. Otherwise, here we are still. The original entry is short:

What up ya'll. I've been looking at advogato recently, and seeing my co-hackers thomasvs, Uraeus, and hadess posting here all the time made me jealous, so here I am too.

summertime... and the living is easy.

Not all that much has changed since then, aside from my abandoment of thomasvs-style typographical conventions. While I'm obtuse at times, it's still the gratification of writing for an audience that is my main motivation.

Regarding comments, I admit that they please me greatly. Granted, there was a time in which whatever I would write about, someone would comment, nagging about something that I should be doing. That was not so nice. But now (should I admit this?), when I post, I do check in more or more frequently to see if anyone has commented. Instinctual, perhaps unhealthy, but still, here we are.

I'm not so popular that other people write comments trying to boast about their own accomplishments, troll, flame, or whatever Spolsky was complaining about a few months ago. The majority of commenters contribute positively. So thanks folks, it's appreciated.

In summary, thanks for reading. If my writings are not to your taste, and I appear on some aggregator you read, please ignore my entries. Otherwise, the world's our oyster!

    Andy,

    I read your blog and that's not because you mentioned Ikarus ;). It's actually touches on pretty fun variety of topics in a, say, friendly way. It's like listening to one of the cool friends around here talking about what they did this week. Actually, too bad we didn't really meet in Frieburg this year. Maybe next year in British Colombia.
    So, keep on writing and happy hacking.

    In the U.S. alone tens of thousands of illnesses (and deaths) are reported each year from diseases spread by insect vectors. West Nile Virus (WNV) and Encephalitis are two diseases spread by mosquitoes that can affect humans, pets, livestock, and wild animals. According to the December 2011 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California leads the U.S. with 154 reported WNV cases, resulting in 8 deaths. Bat rabies accounts for approximately one human death per year in the entire U.S.

    Bats can be valuable allies as Nature's insect pest control. First, let's dispel a few myths about bats. They are not birds, nor are they rodents. They are fur-bearing, milk producing mammals, like us. They play a key role in maintaining balance in our eco-system by keeping insect populations in check. They are nature's most effective, least expensive, natural pest control. One bat house, that holds 100 Little Brown bats, can potentially consume 100,000 insects per hour! Mexican Free-tailed bats eat hundreds of tons of moth pests (weekly) and a colony of Big Browns can consume tens of millions of cucumber beetle larva in a season. One million Ghost Bats can consume almost 7 tons of insects in a year. Bats can save farmers and foresters billions of dollars annually. Not only do they deserve our protection, urgent and effective efforts towards their conservation is critical, not only for the bats, but for our own livelihood.
