Next week, I’m going to GUADEC in the Hague, Holland. something I would like to know before I leave on Tuesday, is there someone who wants to take me back (with a car) to Antwerp or Ghent? That would make things easier for me.. see you there, I’ll be attending sessions from Wednesday.
yesterday I gave a talk at our hackerspace in Ghent about Selinux. there were quite a lot of people who attended my talk, but as I said there: it is still a ‘beta version’. I want to thank all the people who attended, and who had some valuable feed back on how to improve the presentation. it was more a [...]
This is something I found via Dag Wieers. But this is so awesome, I had to write a post about this. Dag found that Linux is mentioned in the last publication of De Kiekeboes, a flemish comic for children. apparently he is running RHEL 5 next to Win XP Pro.. I wonder why he still needs Win XP then? But [...]

2 days ago I saw a post on Matthew‘s blog about what books he is reading at the moment. I was wondering if this too could become a Fedora meme? let’s try it! These are the books I am currently reading: Fedora 13 security – enhanced Linux (chapter 4) Foundations of IT service management (chapter 3) Red Hat RPM Guide [...]
This was the opening of Devopsdays 2009. Quite a funny clip isn’t it? But what is a devop actually? Kris Buytaert is an expert on the subject, and I found a nice presentation of him explaining the concept: Devops Devops Devops View more presentations from Kris Buytaert. DevOps is not about operators or developers, it is about how to get [...]
Yesterday we had our second Fedora release party. This time the event was held in Ghent, at our beloved hackerspace . I arrived around 5.30pm, almost together with Vincent. He started out with placing the PXE boot server, and I went out hanging Fedora banners around the place, so people would find the venue in the labyrinth. We expected some [...]
