Blogging will be light here at Ambient Irony for the next week or so.
But that does not mean I've left you without reading material! Whether you are looking for edification or entertainment, the growing list of Munuvians (over there --->) is bound to satisfy.

One bug, two bugs, tar bugs, su bugs,
grep bugs, mew bugs, old bugs, new bugs.
This bug has a little hack,
This bug has a broken stack.
Say! What a lot of bugs to track.
Yes, some are in tar, and some in su.
Some are old. And some are new.
Some in sed, and some in jed.
And some are even in parted.
Why are they in parted, jed and sed?
I do not know. Bugs should be dead!
Some in jpeg, and some in TIFF
This TIFF one has an attached diff.
From there to here, from here to there
Test release bugs are everywhere.
Fedora Core test 2 is available for
x86 and x86-64
It should not be installed where production is hot;
use it only for test, as we say quite a lot.
If you install with the default
SELinux will be the result
SELinux is a form of MAC
For more answers, check the FAQ [*]
By explicitly stating what apps can use
Unwanted accesses it will refuse

So please test test2 in this mode;
and please test it with your code.
Plus it comes with a new GNOME;
can you test that in your home?
Also X.org is new,
replacing XFree, test it too.
And 3.2.1 of KDE
We need to test, test, test, you see!
So we will test it on our box.
And we will even test out sox.
And we will test it in our house.
And we will test it with our mouse.
And we will test it here and there.
Say! We will test it ANYWHERE!
This week's Nyquil™ Bestofme Symphone is now appearing at Rocket Jones and there's a lot of good stuff there. Ted's a bit under the weather, so I think a cheery sing-along is in order.

Before I forget again, The International Squirrel Conspiracy has moved. Update those blogrolls!
I think I may have worked out how to make money by hosting blogs for free.
Not a lot of money, admittedly, but I'm not greedy. Well, I am greedy, but I'm also pragmatic. Small amounts of money are still good.
Stay tuned, folks. Lots of cool new stuff coming to MuNu in the near future.

This is just plain nifty. The Netgear WGT634U may have a dull name, but it is shiny and packed full of goodness.
It's a firewall and a router. It's a 4-port 10/100Mbit ethernet switch. It's a 108Mbit WiFi access point. And if you plug in an external USB disk drive, it's also a file server.
I haven't found an Australian price for it yet, but in the U.S. it retails for around $150.
This post on the Idea Shop is an excellent explication of my exact thoughts on the matter of wealth redistribution. Go read.
MuNu is throwing a party, and you're invited!
