sorry for the rants.
the hand-wringing in the meta discussions is getting annoying. too
many lists, too many websites, father knows best.
for my part, i honestly don't care. i don't want to maintain a web
site, don't really have some mailing list niche i need filled, i
just hang around, learn stuff and braindump on occasion.
but seeing these things go across the screen is like watching
an eager kid asking a clueless parent if they can go play
and create with the constant droning response of "no." and if
that wasn't annoying enough, it's happening with something that
i put money towards - linux.ie - so it's like i'm partially
responsible for it.
the folks in cork sound like they've got energy and motivation
that i haven't seen yet in dublin for the year i've been here.
good. maybe i'll finally make it down there and see what
y'all are like in person. the 20 squids i put up for linux.ie
vote that they should get their web site if they're willing to
work for it. and maybe the competition will teach us a thing
or two about how to get our butts moving up here.
and while we're on the topic of things that should be on linux.ie,
i'm wondering why the irish language for linux list isn't on
linux.ie, or at least mentioned on the web page. that would
seem like a uniquely irish linux thing...
