Oh. Noes!

Yesterday, my two sets of Ubuntu 7.10 (“Gutsy Gibbon”) arrived by snail-mail, which means that I’ll be upgrading my ‘v1r7u41 b0xen’ this weekend. Once again, the package came with free stickers. Hey, Sun, what’s that? Still no free stickers with your Solaris disks?

Engadget listed PhotoVu’s Digital Frame which comes with an RSS reader. Wait, there’s more: it has a built-in webserver (so that you can set up things and stuff). Wait there’s more: It uses Samba. 1, 2, 3, 4: Why, it runs Debian, of course. Nifty.

And on a completely different note: the .Net Framework (confirmed in 2.0, for sure) doesn’t support serialization of TimeSpans. This is not really a big issue, because you can generally workaround this. It just struck me by surprise.
