Aurimas Černius is the new Gnote maintainer.

Aurimas has been doing awesome work over the last couple of years, and while I was not doing justice to the project he kept up with a steady stream of patches. Right now he is working on porting Gnote to Gtk+ 3.x and GNOME 3, which will hopefully improve the experience on Fedora 15.

Planet Fedora heads

with 6 comments

Planet Fedora has some very big heads these days. I failed to spot anything in the guidelines that forbid them or suggest otherwise.

I am aware that such issues have been brought up in the past by various people. A casual search revealed this, and I am sure that if you dig around you will get a few more instances where people have asked similar questions. Since there are more than a dozen such heads (I stopped counting after 12, and I was only considering the really huge ones) I am curious what is the deal here.

In case you are reading this and wondering how to get yourself a nice hackergotchi you will find this link helpful.

with 4 comments

When I restarted Firefox after updating it on my Fedora 14 system, I was presented with this:

I never installed Adobe Flash Player on this system.

For what it is worth, I use Gnash and, barring the occasional resource leaks, it has been providing me with my daily dosage of Youtube.
