  • I just love twitter, especially right after we do a release. The #Sabayon tweets just rise up in record numbers. My favorite twitter client is TweetDeck.

  • One of the scariest things people run into with Gentoo based systems is Portage. It’s not that scary if you just take 5 minutes and read through the material.
