2014-02-06: New init system feature!

The Debian Technical Committee has concluded that all of the available init systems were missing a key technical feature, and, in the spirit of free software, has gone ahead and fixed that lack. All init systems currently packaged for Debian can now double as test case generators for Condorcet vote analysis.

I'm not sure if this counts as an NMU.

In the event that the Debian project votes on a General Resolution on the default init system, this blog post should be considered striken in its entirety and replaced by the most complex email message from Anthony Towns that the reader can find.

2014-02-07: Things I learn from reading Reddit

I am apparently an Ent.

I think that's one of the nicest things that anyone has said about me this year. I'm feeling quite delighted by it. I'm not sure it's the character from Lord of the Rings that fits me the best, and for personal reasons I have to default to identifying with Gwaihir, but it definitely captures a substantial component of my personality.

Hoom.
