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.

Shailaja Learns A New Word

Today my daughter (now 27 months old) turned to my wife, pointed to my laptop and said "Jyo mummy, Debian chhe." ("Look Mummy it's Debian.") Is being potty-trained a prerequisite for the new maintainer process?

Which OS Are You?

There is a quiz on BBSpot to find out which OS matches your personality. Debian is a choice but I actually got this:

I started out with Slackware many moons ago and I still have a soft spot for it so that's ok. Atleast I didn't get Windows ME. :)

Girlfriends of Geeks

Ok this is not really Debian related but I came across a funny French site -- a support group for girlfriends of geeks. As a banner on the site says, "vivre avec un geek c'est possible!" They have HOWTO's!
