This is going to be a rather long post, so I suggest you go get yourself a cup of coffee/beer/cigarette’s or whatever your fix is.
Last year, since I got this new notebook, I pretty much became a real distro slut. It was pretty much all because of the bleeding edge hardware you had and bleeding edge software that was around, Fedora … Mandriva. Don’t get me wrong, Slackware (any distro) can do those things too, but it’s just … to much pain in the ass.
Long story short, I always returned home, to Slackware that is. Now I think that may not be the case, since I’m already on Debian for a month now, and it’s not annoying me at all. My previous Debian experiences were mostly server based, whole philosophy was something close to reading Nietzsche, but once you got it figured … you like it, a lot :)
Of course, this was all caused by “domino effect” that was generated for almost a year, then plus DebConf experience … plus Slackware and Debian development differences … and lot more.
DebConf7 ended a week ago or something, and yes I needed this long to … just “compile” it so eventually at least something comes out of all of this. Number of pictures is just … there’s too many so I’ll just put the most significant ones (the ones I thought are the most significant). I’ll put gomze’s pictures, even tho wherever I looked he didn’t put my pictures. You hear that you arse! >_<> because on that day there was a direct filght from Pula to Edinburgh.
From 7am … approximately 10hours in bus to get to Pula, from Pula to Edinburgh somewhat less then 3hours. I told gomez right back in Tuzla, that I was a major jinx, but I really didn’t expect it to go that far :)
And off we go, I kept on drinking apple juice, from all the hangover from last night, good think that happened is that I realize that bus toilet was closed cuz it was broken or something. So every time bus would stop to pick more people or whatever I was the lunatic running around looking for bathroom. However over time I got better, that’s the time when whole bus is listening to my story and laughing their asses out.
gomez was of course making new female friends in the mean time :)
Last … whatever days I really don’t know what’s been up. I been reading a lot, really a lot, studying for Cisco too. So yea not much time obviously.
Last week “sapphire” was here, as a big giant head of our Debian team for Bosnia, he left first. I took him around the town and etc … heh took them to that “sea” we got in middle of a city, even tho I said I wont follow, I jumped in too. In my clothes, I just couldn’t resist :)
Bla bla, he actually liked the city, and since our beauty is … specific nature beauty (wtf right?) I’ll just post few pictures of us looking like shit.
Toshiba vs MacBook && (Slackware vs Debian) && ugly vs ugly
Yesterday, I got DebConf7 “For Immigration purposes”, a letter that I’ll be using when in UK embassy in order to get my visa for Edinburgh.
“Dear Adnan Hodzic,

Below are my details, and below that is just explanation what Debian is and what DebConf is. Place itself looks very nice, but the major fun pictures will be posted once I was there :)
