This is a weblog I'm keeping about my work on Debian and any other useful Debian related info I come across. It is not meant to compete with other news sources like Debian Weekly News or Debian Planet. Mostly it is just a way for me to classify and remember all the random bits of information that I have floating around me. I thought maybe by using a blog it could be of some use to others too. Btw. "I" refers to Jaldhar H. Vyas, Debian developer for over 5 years. If you want to know more about me, my home page is here.
The name? Debain is a very common misspelling of Debian and la salle de bains means bathroom in French.
If you have a comment to make on something you read here, feel free to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can get an rss 0.91 feed of any page in the
blog by appending

Scott Remnant has started Planet Debian to aggregate Debian related blogs. I've sent him an email to get La Salle Debain added there and hopefully wider scrutiny will shame me into keeping it more uptodate this year. I've updated the layout to use CSS and after about half an hour of figuring out how GIMP works, the site now has a logo. Do you like it?
