Der Papst stirbt und kommt an die Himmelstür. Petrus begrüsst ihn:

"Sei gegrüsst im Himmelreich! Sag mir deinen Namen."

"Ich bin der Papst!"

"Papst, Papst", murmelt Petrus. "Tut mir leid, ich habe niemanden mit diesem Namen in meinem Buch."

"Aber ... ich bin doch der Stellvertreter Gottes auf Erden!"

"Gott hat einen Stellvertreter auf Erden?", fragt Petrus verblüfft. "Komisch, hat er mir gar nichts davon gesagt."

Der Papst läuft krebsrot an und sagt: "Ich bin das Oberhaupt der Katholischen Kirche!"

"Katholische Kirche ... nie gehört", sagt Petrus. "Aber warte mal 'nen Moment, ich frag den Chef."

Er geht nach hinten in den Himmel und sagt zu Gott: "Du, da ist einer, der sagt er sei dein Stellvertreter auf Erden. Er heisst Papst. Sagt dir das was?"

"Nee", sagt Gott, "kenn ich nicht. Weiss ich auch nichts von. Aber warte mal, ich frag Jesus."


Jesus kommt angerannt.

"Ja Vater, was gibt's?"

Gott und Petrus erklären ihm die Situation.

"Moment", sagt Jesus, "ich guck mir den mal an. Bin gleich zurück."

Zehn Minuten später ist er wieder da, Tränen lachend.

"Ich fass es nicht!", jappst er. "Erinnert ihr euch an den kleinen Fischerverein, den ich vor 2000 Jahren gegründet habe? Den gibt's immer noch!"

I really need to remember these slides for the next powerpoint karaoke session.

For the uninitiated, powerpoint karaoke is a game best played on conferences after hours. One "victim" gets to give a talk to slides he's never seen before. It's not only the best training I know to poise while being completely ignorant, it's also hilarious to watch what stories the speakers invent around the slides. Just add "filetype:ppt" to any google query -- and you'll find the material for this game (find the slides used in the video: "chicken filetype:ppt").

We’re always looking for people helping us to make #ChiliProject better and we are lucky to have some great contributors investing their free time to fix bugs and generally improve ChiliProject.

In the last couple of weeks, one contributor stood out in particular as he has been steadily submitting improvements to the user interface part of ChiliProject, sanitizing and modernizing the #HTML and #JavaScript little by little. We were impressed by his patience and the perseverance he showed when providing his technical knowledge and when including our feedback in the areas he contributes to. Consequently, the ChiliProject team unanimously decided to ask him to join our team of core developers. I am very pleased to welcome +Andrew Smith on board and we’re looking forward to working even more closely with him.

Going forward, Andrew plans to finish the migration to #jQuery away from #Prototype, support a fully responsive design, rewrite the #CSS to #SASS, and apply a lot more Web 2.x and #Rails 3+ buzzwords. You can often find him in the ChiliProject IRC channel ( as EspadaV8, on Twitter as @EspadaV8 and on #GitHub as EspadaV8. In his day job he is a PHP developer for an advertising agency in Brisbane, Australia and aside from working on ChiliProject he spends his free time cycling and reading SciFi and Fantasy.

The other change in the team is about someone several of you have inquired about. Unfortunately, we have to announce that Eric Davis is stepping down as the Project Lead of ChiliProject. He and his his wife had the joy to welcome a new member to their family earlier this year and he doesn’t feel the little time he can spare for ChiliProject will allow him to live up to the role of the Project Lead. Eric won’t leave us completely and will continue to be a member of the ChiliProject team. We all thank him for his hard work and guidance and hope to see his contributions extend again once he can justify it.

The team unanimously elected +Holger Just as the new Project Lead ( Holger’s primary new reponsibilty is to settle any deadlocks in decision making but he will still be a member among others of the ChiliProject team. Furthermore, his expressed opinions will continue to be only his own unless explicitly stated otherwise. Please read the Project Lead page in the wiki for more information or get in touch with us ( if some things seem unclear.

"will either get the chores done or make your kids super hackers ;)"
Brilliant.  Brilliant!

Please let me remember this when my kids are old enough to use the internet.

And please don't let this post give +Mark Giddens any funny ideas.

ChiliProject 3.3.0 ( has just been released. It includes some new features and bugfixes for ChiliProject 3.2.2. It is suitable for use on production websites and we recommend that all users download the release as soon as possible.

What’s included

3.3.0 includes 12 bug fixes and 8 features for 3.2.2 and fixes 1 regression introduced in 3.2.0.

The regression fix addresses an issue encountered by some plugins explicitly requiring a vendored gravatar library which was replaced in 3.2.0. Most of the features are +Andrew Smith's work to move the JavaScript parts of ChiliProject to jQuery and to sanitize the HTML a bit. His most noticeable contribution is the datepicker which will use the “native” browser datepicker where applicable (recent Chrome versions, Opera, mobile browsers, …) and use the jQueryUI datepicker elsewhere. Thanks a lot Andrew!

New to the ChiliProject “ecosystem” are also a Chef Cookbook ( and a Vagrant file ( Chef is a configuration management software, with it and the ChiliProject Chef Cookbook you can deploy, install, and update ChiliProject instances and the software it depends on quickly and effortlessly. Vagrant is a virtual machine management and control software, with the ChiliProject Vagrant file you can download, provision, configure and start a VM with ChiliProject installed in 4 commands. Please note though that both projects are still at their beginnings, make sure to read their READMEs carefully before using them in critical environments.

The full list of changes:

Bug #935: Serialization problem in Setting model
Bug #944: Engines::Testing.set_fixture_path appends array to $LOAD_PATH in Ruby 1.9

Bug #1050: Create vagrant file/chef cookbook

Bug #1070: Re-compress all the image assets
Bug #1074: Rake tasks of plugins in vendor/chiliproject_plugins are not loaded
Bug #1075: Can no longer render unordered lists within ordered lists
