Every winter … I just get incredibly damp and … depressed :wilt:
Well this year, I’ve found an ultimate remedy + stress “reliever” since I’m all jumpy around DebConf11 decision coming around this Saturday :fingersxd: So to whoever has the same problem during winter … take your board/skies (whatever your fix is) and hit the mountains! This weekend I went to Bosnian “Olympic” mountain Jahorina; couple of days later … stress free, depression free and ready for new challenges, in the meantime I’ll let pictures talk for themselves ;)
My friend and I
I’m using Gnome as my default DE after my KDE4 dissapointment, however what’s bothering me for some time now is that I have to “live” with applications that I don’t even use or like for that matter. So why “live” with those? Well if I try to remove some of those applications it’ll want to “pull down” my whole DE along with them, however I couldn’t believe solution was so simple.
Applications I don’t want to live with are: evolution, epiphany, empathy, ekiga, liferea, gnome-accessibility and couple of others. Step 1 might seem as it wants to remove “whole” DE, but it all it wants is gnome-desktop-environment which is meta/dummy package so don’t worry.
sudo apt-get remove epiphany epiphany-browser-data epiphany-data empathy
empathy-doc libempathy30 libempathy-common libempathy-gtk28 liferea
liferea-data evolution ekiga gok dasher orca gnome-accessibility
openoffice.org-evolution evolution-common evolution-data-server

I’ve been around Debian for some time, however am not a “official” Debian Developer and I can’t become “overnight” because country I live in (Bosnia) and I have no one to sign my key. I doubt I could easily do it in Croatia or Serbia my neighboring countries. This is definitely another reason why I’m pursuing to have DebConf11 in Balkans (read: Bosnia).
I didn’t get my key signed on DebConf9 since I hesitated whether to keep my old DSA 768 bit key or not. However by the end of this month I’m planning to visit some friends on TUWIEN and planing to meet up with some DD from Vienna and get my key signed. Btw I’d like to use this opportunity to call all DD residing in Vienna (Rhonda?) to contact me :)
So what am talking about after all? Thunderbird 3.0 was released 29 ago, Icedove 3.0 is in experimental but only arm and i386 arch. and I’m using amd64. … After I kept bothering nice people at #debian-buildd they told me to make my own, and once I built my own I don’t have permissions to upload it to ftp-mater … there’s no sense I upload it through mentors …

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.
