My ARM machine is down

At least since a few days ago, my ARM buildd for experimental/unstable non-free/volatile/etch-secure/d-i went broken (ARGH!). Dpkg always caused a segmentation fault and I couldn't find any meaningful messages from the system. After I rebooted the machine, it won't reply anything... I'll try to connect a monitor and to solve the problem on this weekend.

... OK, ARM comes back (28th May, 2006). I decided to buy a USB-seiral converter to check the status.

Backed from Debconf6 and Canada

I backed home yesterday. After I arrived at home, I went to buy foods to cook, checked bills and snail mails, washed my clothes, took a bath, saw through a bunch of e-mails and gave up to reply to them, met my partner again, cooked for dinner, and slept well. Fortunately I haven't a jet lug at this time.

Because I tripped China for 1 week before Debconf6, I was very tired at the beginning of Debconf. Furthermore mixing Spanish/English/Japanese caused me a mental fatigue. I felt better as time went by. Well, I would more enjoy if I wasn't so tired, but I enjoyed BOF, talks, swimming, foods, travelling and so on during Debconf6. 'Gracias, Debconf staff and attendees.' Mexico was an interesting place for me, so I'd like to visit there again in the future with my partner.

After Debconf, we - Nobuhiro, Yukiharu, and me - stayed Toronto for 2 days. It was very nice time to see Niagara falls and to walk through Toronto downtown.

I uploaded the photos: Debconf6 pictures, Canada picutures.

I apologize I couldn't work well for Debian, especially for CUPS during the conference by a network problem. CUPS 1.2.1 is already released and I'm working for it.

Triathlon in Debconf 6

Yeah, I arrived Mexico! Here is bit hot, but isn't so much than I imagined. Today, we, the party of 13:00-14:00 arrived members challenged the 'Debconf triathlon'.

We took the subway method. Going up-down, up-down, up-down, ... the stairs with carrying heavy bag is really good exercise. I thank myself because I'd bought soft and light bag for this trip :)

See you in Debconf6

This evening, three Japanese people including me will get on an airplane to Toronto. After staying one night, we'll go to Mexico. See you in MX!

... I saw Jesus's report from Mexico. Well, I haven't any shorts. I have optimistic view to wear with jeans, because Japanese summer is very hot also (30C-35C) and many Japanese usually still wear jeans, long pants, or even business suit(!)
