About La Salle Debain

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

You can get an rss 0.91 feed of any page in the blog by appending ?flav=rss to the end of the URL.

Milestones, Memes and Massachusetts

Hmm I haven't blogged for a while. What have I been up to?

January marked my 8th anniversary as a Debian developer. And I became a saint at the Perl Monastery.

A belated contribution to some memes:

 I am nerdier than 82% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

 I am 86% loser. What about you? Click here to find out!

 What is your weird quotient? Click to find out!

Once again I am organizing the Debian presence at Linuxworld which has abandoned its' traditional New York location for Boston this year. I arrived Monday afternoon and spent a couple of hours setting things up with Troy Murray and Ari Pollak. The show runs from Tuesday 15th to Thursday 17th. Debian is in booth #8 in the .org pavilion. If you would like to drop by and say hello or get cool Debian swag (we have t-shirts, posters, and CDs) and you don't already have a pass, you can download one from here.
