    Got that latest or greatest scoop? Perhaps you have some important news for the Debian community? Submit a news item!

    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    Branden has turned into that friendly name that turns up in family meeting over Christmas.

    The time has come for the Debian age of Branden !

    Candidate no more!, Branden for DPL !

    Who’s that cucumber newbie guy anyway ?

    Debian forever.

    Who the F*** installed Gentoo on my home box in the first place ?. Thank the Lord I still have two debians left on my laptop and server. After changing jobs and now working on MS windows I miss my linux so much at work *snif*, *snif*.

    Bye, have fun.

    …in the poll anyway (can’t vote in the election proper), mostly because your platform was the only one I read through completely.

    Keep it on!

    No offence.

    I was making a highly intelligent* punn (? is punn the word?) on the (incumbent) and (DPL newbie) parts on the name tags :).

    I don’t know what incumbent means… sounds somewhat like cucumber… wait!, I know what a cucumber is :). So cucumber may it be.

    I have no more neural conections free to learn new words (no, and no spelling either)

    I even installed Red Hat 9 at home for my server, but I couldn’t stand it for long. I had to sweep it out and reinstall Debian. Nice to be back.

    Anyway, good luck Gergely.
