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.

I know you're thinking shouldn't I have said my wife is pregnant? Well I'm claiming the product is a derived not an aggregate work.
This evening I gave a talk to the Mid-Hudson Valley Linux Users Group (MHVLUG) in Poughkeepsie, New York about what's going on in Debian these days and what's coming up in sarge. I did a live demo of the new installer which suitably impressed the audience and made the requisite quota of nerdy jokes which, um, probably didn't. But they laughed so I choose to keep my self-reputation as a comedic genius intact. There were a lot of good, interesting questions from the audience then we had a small keysigning followed by dinner and lively conversation at a local restaurant. Poughkeepsie is a couple of hours away by train from Jersey City so I didn't get back home until 1:30am but I had a really great time. Thanks to Joe Appuzo and the LUG members for inviting me.
