The Call for Presentations for SHARE 123 in Pittsburgh is open now. We encourage everyone who might have experience with Linux or z/VM to submit a session proposal sooner rather than later. We're already starting the planning cycle. #SHAREorg#Linux
When I was in Germany last October, a couple of my co-workers took me sightseeing a few places. One of them was Bamberg. They thought I should try one of the local beers, from a brewery named Schlenkerla. They specialize in a smoke beer. I tried it, and it was... different to say the least. If you've had a smoke beer before and liked it, I would say give it a try, assuming you can find any. It is possibly the most smoky tasting beer you're ever likely to have. If you're not into dark beers, or extremely flavorful beers, stay far, far away from this one. I was able to appreciate it, but I'm not sure I would make a habit of drinking it.
And... after a long and fruitful development cycle, Slackware 14.1 stable has been released into the wild. Thanks to the team for the great work (as always), and to everyone else who pitched in to help make this a great release. Go get it! And, feel free to browse http://store.slackware.com/ where you can find the official DVD (and 32-bit CD set) and lots of other cool Slackware products that help us keep the project lights on here. Enjoy!
Looking forward to the next devel cycle... we live in interesting times, as they say. :)
This past weekend I bought a bottle of Majave Habanero Hot Sauce at Whole Foods Market. The owner of the company was staffing a tasting table in the store. As the name says, it's hot, but not blisteringly so. (According to their web site at http://www.majave.net there is an extra hot version, which I haven't tried.) The owner said he was shooting more for "hot with a good flavor" than just "hot." What I like about it is that it does actually have a good flavor, and not just spicy hot vinegar. You can definitely taste the habanero flavor. Also, the ingredients list doesn't include any preservatives or strange sounding chemicals, which is also nice. If you're into hot sauces, you might like this one a lot.
