If only +Cleopatra Von Ludwig could somehow put Tricksy in her luggage and go there... :-)

I remember clutching the door, thinking to myself, well, clutching the door isn't gonna save my ass if we follow those black tracks! :)

Did someone make an open source Nitix (albeit stripped down of its actual services, more like the Lotus Foundation that now survive, I guess) while I wasn't looking?

If so, that's kind of hilarious, in that perverted way.

Yep, it was pretty clear to me that we (well, credit where credit is due, mostly Avery) were onto the right idea with the image-based Nitix system. Really, iOS is based around the same basic idea as well (image-based core os, "apps" run in a highly restricted chroot). I suspect it'll take a few more years for the rest of the world to realize this, but the days of package-based Linux distributions are IMO numbered. They're a nightmare to QA and properly maintain.

The Ride4Pie happened, at the eleventh hour! +Jody McIntyre kicked me in the ass, and so we headed out: http://www.strava.com/activities/91766151

I got four apple pies (with "sucre à la crème", of course!) and an apple crumble.

The shop was pretty much wiped out after our visit, just a few apple turnovers left...

"A casual observer might think the S2000 was simply Honda's way of moving into Miata territory. This assumption is wrong. It was more like the Miata's psychotic axe murderer cousin who just escaped from prison and has a long list of police officers, prosecutors and ex-girlfriends it needs to take revenge on."

A future classic indeed!

Which reminds me I should try to bend time and space to visit +Cleopatra Von Ludwig and try out her little marvel! ;-)
I try hard, dear reader, to avoid obvious answers when I pen these Future Classics stories. You don't need me to tell you that the Toyota Supra or the E46 BMW M3 are great cars. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that the Porsche 993 will be highly coveted one day. That's too easy and not much fun.

You should! I'll give you the keys and point you to the best canyon roads -- it'll be my belated birthday present to you. :)

I love the quote -- Tricksy definitely rides like a psychotic axe murderer ! :)

Something weird happened... I made a release of Quadra. :-)

Fifteen years now!
Fifteen years (and a few months) after Quadra 1.0.0 was released, and almost 220,000 downloads of the open source version, there's a new version of Quadra! We're pretty terrifyingly bad maintainers, the last release having be...

+Michael Faille In the GitHub release pages, there's the "Source code (zip)" and "Source code (tar.gz)" buttons, in light grey. Those are automatically generated from git by GitHub, and are equivalent to just using git (it won't run any scripts, it's really just the files, in a zip/tar.gz).

The ones in green, though, are files that I made and uploaded.

With automake, there's a "make distcheck" that will build the source tarball, check that it can be uncompressed and built, all automatically. When it does this, it generates the "configure" script, among other things, so that you do not need to have autoconf or automake on your system (of which autoreconf is a part of).

I might have screwed up, but back in the days, you could do something similar to "rpmbuild tb quadra-1.3.0.tar.gz", and it would just spit out the binary RPM. :)

Is +Cleopatra Von Ludwig one of "those people"? I don't think so, but if I bought an S2000, I fear I might become one! :-)

If only it could carry our two Brompton folding bikes and a small piece of luggage, I'd be totally looking for one! I liked it better than the Gallardo I had driven a few weeks before!

I may be having more Italian.

But it's okay, there's no one on Google+ to find out. ;-)

I'm having crazy thoughts again... Thinking a Noble M600 is really what I want, but that this would do very well. VERY VERY WELL.

+Cleopatra Von Ludwig, I blame you! It's all your fault!

I should use this as my alarm clock sound, it seems to work. Yay for cars shaped like a shoe!

Considering how deep I sleep, that seems to work just fine for me. Especially the overrun when shifting. :-)

It's a bit on the small side for what we're doing there (radio car racing), but it works well, and is fairly easy to reach from Central London.

Great food, at a great price, friendly atmosphere, with a simple menu where you choose what is going to be on your skewer. The included port wine is nothing special, but good (you might want to favour getting the dessert). We had everything but the fish, and it was all very good! Mind that there is no vegetarian option.
