Santa Fe

I’m in Santa Fe this week. Due to some fluke we got a good deal at the St Francis hotel so we’re staying downtown.

Mark Galassi, whose desktop always blossoms with odd gadgets and interesting things, showed me the electric sheep screensaver. It is awesome.

Mark and the local linux user’s group also linux-ified the Aztec cafe. So, when I went in this morning, I was not at all surprised to see a public machine displaying tux and a big “GNU Linux” banner, along with an explanation of what this was about.


  • Wow, that electric sheep thingy looks awesome. Gotta try that out…

  • Ah – my home town! Glad to see it is getting some Linux love.


  • Hi Tom.

    Say hi to Mark G for me… Hope you have a good time in Santa Fe. What are you there for?

  • Stephen — a friend of Elyn’s is here for a conference so we came down for a brief vacation and visit.

    Directly after this I’m leaving for FOSDEM… that looks to be fun 🙂

  • Good luck at FOSDEM. And have some green chili on blue corn enchilladas for me.
