Whatever happened to the hostname?

Dear lazy web: I have two machines working right now, one with fedora, the other with ubuntu live cd. Both machines connect wirelessly to my main router, but only the ubuntu machine displays its hostname in the router client table (in this case "ubuntu"), while the fedora machine is identified …

I have no words to say...

Literally, I have no words to say. I've been pretty much out of the whole picture these last couple of weeks. But the main reason is that I had my tonsillectomy on the 28th. I was mostly mute for the whole week, and I survived mostly out of the huge …

I was testing midori, mainly because I wanted a webkit browser to test some pages and midori is a lightweight enough browser to have around. But (there's always a but, right) I found a problem: midori is not able to open any pages on http://localhost... anyone having the same …

Loving fedorahosted

The (https://fedorahosted.org) site was in desperately need of some love. Luckily, I had some spare time and gave it a face-lift :) Here's a sneak peak, but I would like you to go see for yourself, and if anything seems amiss, just drop me a line either here or …

And in other news...

The tight integration between the VCS …

I missed FUDCon :(

Between all the major hoopla going around in my house for the past month or so, I managed (all by myself) to miss the register deadline for [FUDCon Latam](http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FUDConLATAM2009), which is a damn shame, since I wanted to attend. Oh well, maybe I'll attend next …

OpenID anyone?

Dear FAS: Would it be possible to provide a valid OpenID URL to all FAS accounts ''ala'' Launchpad? (see https://launchpad.net/~yourusername if you have a launchpad account). Or probably there's one already and I am too blind to catch it? if not, what can I do to help …

Election time, dude!

Llegaron las elecciones! y estoy bastante emocionado porque va a ser la primera vez que planeo votar a conciencia. No, no me refiero a las elecciones intermedias para la bola de ineptos de la clase política mexicana (a la cual ya me he [referido anteriormente](http://kad.blegh.net/index …

People keep talking about it...

I've been using the [presto plugin for yum](http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/FeaturePresto) for a while now (a year? can't remember) but only now it is being pushed as a "cool new feature". Did I miss something here? Presto allows you to download only the deltas of updated RPM …
