Tuesday ews-nay, issue #43.

Yesterday I was scarce because after a weekend at Ohio Linux Fest it was time for a brief respite with my family. We went out to Belvedere Plantation for a day of fun in the sun during their Fall Harvest festival. (Quite a bit of sun, as a matter of fact, to which my face, neck, and arms can attest.)

The pedal tractors and the Maize Maze were the big winners overall, but young and old alike were really waiting for the afternoon hayride to the pumpkin patch, where we picked some doozies for jack o’ lantern carving and decorating this year.

Today I found that David Yates had put up a new episode 92 of his Lotta Linux Links podcast, including a fun hallway interview we did during the Ohio Linux Fest on Saturday. It was great meeting him face to face after hearing his entertaining, freewheeling podcast for some time. He gave me plenty of time to talk about cool, upcoming Fedora 10 features, how I got into Fedora to begin with, and the possibilities of getting the “Redneck” translation back into Fedora.

After a Board meeting this afternoon, I’m heading to a parent-teacher conference at school — finally meeting Evie’s second-grade teacher — to formulate a strategy on how to make school less boring for Evie. Then it will be back to work. This week I’m hoping to put finishing touches on the TM guidelines, get some draft communications written for a few people to whom I owe them, formulate some more details on the FUDCon in Boston on January 9-11, and (hopefully) work on unraveling some knotty Docs stuff. Happy Tuesday all!
