Bosnian bid for DebConf11 is Banja Luka, we had wiki page that wasn’t changed since DebConf9 in Cáceres this year. Reason we didn’t have it changed for so long is that we didn’t want to post anything before we had “official/first hand” answers to all our questions. Therefor we present you with wiki page for Banja Luka!
Our team was working (still is) incredibly hard in order to get it all sorted. Slowly but surely we are taking our bid process to the final stage, where we are planing to finalize the actual funds needed for the DebConf11 to take place and … that would be from us :)
If you have any questions about something that wasn’t mentioned on the wiki please do let me know.
Yesterday was a glorious day for DebConf11 bid in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I had a scheduled meeting with Banja Luka’s mayor Dragoljub Davidovic.
We met in his cabinet, where I presented him with the paper “DebConf11 in Bosnia and Herzegovina” in which I tried to explain what it all means. From what Debian is, over what DebConf is, to why is DebConf important.
The thing I was most worried about was how am I going to explain all this in simple “non-tech” words :)
Either way, I was in middle of explaining what Debian is when mayor interrupted me “I understand, I’m electrical engineer myself” … you have no idea what relief came from these words! :D
Explaining what DebConf is and what kind of profiles attend one such event went smoothly as well, where mayor made some replicas on my story from the projects he worked on and so on. After my last “case” he also explained me how it’s good that we meet, since Banja Luka was known as “electronic” city in ex-Yugoslavia.

First of all, thank you for all your comments/feedback on previous Start! entries.
What kept me busy for last ~25hrs (literally) was making Start! to be properly rendered in all of the browsers and resolutions except IE of course. In the end, I ended up writing the whole thing from scratch, 709 lines which also passed W3 Validator, pretty sweet :)

Just a quick note to everybody, after post “Debian Start!” (thank you for all your feedback!) I’ve decided to definitely continue my work on this little “project”.
Just so you know, besides
foolcontrol.org/debstart you can find it on start.debian.net from now on ;)
I still have a lot of ideas to realize when it comes to this project, so feel free to expect changes soon.
Ana thanks for the subdomain :)
For last 2 days now, I was in middle of process of moving to a new (faster) server, without any prior notice my web hosting company simply initialized the “move”. Being jinx I am, it was just then that I posted this, so I’m really sorry for all the inconvenience, it really wasn’t my fault: 1. post was unavailable for couple of hours 2. two same posts on the planet
For some time now I’ve been bothered by Iceweasel’s default start page in Debian, and I just refused to use “Firefox Start“. So why not be the one who will change something about it And after such “boost” from DC9, I had to do something, immediately.
