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:
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!
