What goes on behind the curtain

Wouter Verhelst wrote a very insightful blog post about what is involved being a buildd maintainer

For as long as I've been involved with Debian, I've been fascinated by the infrastructure that is the heartbeat of the project. I think it's really cool. Unfortunately, it's not spectacularly documented, so blog posts like his help add some more perspective.

Fourth wedding anniversary

Thursday was our fourth wedding anniversary. To mark the occasion, we had dinner and a show in San Francisco.

We had dinner at Farallon, which is an absolutely gorgeous restaurant. They've really gone to some trouble with the decor. It's very well themed.

We then high-tailed it a few blocks to the Orpheum Theatre and we just got to our seats when they turned down the lights to start Wicked.

Now I am most certainly not a fan of musicals. I can't remember the last time I saw a live play or musical, but I absolutely loved this show. It was very well done. I loved the sets, and it was full of one-liners that made me chuckle, and the storyline itself was very good. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
