[gentoo-dev] hackergotchis + rss feeds

2006-09-12 Thread Steve Dibb
I finally got off my butt and added a small tweak to the feeds for Planet Gentoo, and now you get to see the hackergotchis in your RSS reader as well. Which brings me to my next point -- hardly anyone on planet has one. Send one in! It doesn't have to be a headshot either, an avatar will do

Re: [gentoo-dev] Xmms needs to die.

2006-08-25 Thread Steve Dibb
So, I'm curious -- did anyone ever come to a decision what to do on the matter? The list traffic seems to be dying down. Maybe I just missed the final decision email. Not that it really matters, but here's my 2 cents: If its a pita to maintain, hard mask everything and just say sorry, no
