I’m over in Amsterdam for the Bazaar NL sprint.
While we’ve got some of the Bazaar guys together, it’s a great opportunity to answer your questions about Bazaar and to find out how you’re using it.
So, mail me (matthew DOT revell at my employer.com) or ping me in #bzr on irc.freenode.net, with:
- your questions about Bazaar
- things you liked to see added to or changed in Bazaar
- ways you’ve used Bazaar.
Look forward to hearing from you!
My new job involves some travelling. International mobile roaming rates are laughably high. VOIP, of course, works anywhere with a decent net connection.
I’ve never had any luck with Ekiga. For some reason, whenever I try to make a call through my Sipgate account, I’m given a “Security check failed” message, even though inbound calls are fine. A quick check in the Ubuntu repositories revealed Twinklephone.
It’s a QT app, so it doesn’t precisely share the look and feel of my Gnome desktop but … it works. It sits quietly on the taskbar until a call comes in or I want to make one and I can talk to people with it. So, it’ll be ideal for use with my laptop and, even better, I can save some electricity by unplugging the PAP2 and using it on my desk PC.
I’ve been told, for a long time now, that I’m an old man in a younger man’s body. I have come to accept that my love of slippers, a tamed tendency towards pomposity and general curmudgeonliness, do give that impression at times.
Today is my 29th birthday. I tell you this not to seek your well wishes but because this morning I unwrapped a hip-flask. This does not confirm my odd old-man-before-my-time nature. No, that comes from the fact that I actually wanted a hip-flask for my birthday.
Now, where do you use them without being labelled an alcoholic?
