Post details: Santa Claus, the original one

Santa Claus, the original one

We in Belgium know a guy called "Sinterklaas". He comes from Spain every year, brings "mandarijntjes" (picture) and gives every child that has been gentle last year some present on december 6. Here's what he looks like. He also got some workers called "Zwarte Pieten" (picture).

Yesterday, we had a "party" with VTK with "Sinterklaas" as theme, because yesterday *was* 12/06. First time this year I want to a so-called "Goliarde", and it was fun. Had some sort of camera-fight with Lode (no, not the laptop guy), had a few beers, but had to go home way too soon :-(

Pictures of the event are aviable here.

Sinterklaas, friend of all children:

Some other members of this blog were there too:




Even Santa Clause was there:

I need more RAM. By downloading these pictures from my camera, my machine just hang twice because I hadn't enough RAM (128Mb) and/or swap space (128Mb) aviable (well, I had X, Firefox, Gaim and some other apps running too). Bizarre.

Back to business: I wrote that Subversion Howto I talked about this morning. It is not finished (yet), but well... I'll try to LaTeX'ize it, which will be my first attempt at creating a LaTeX document :-)

Ordered 40 Ubuntu CD's today. 20 x86, 10 PPC and 10 AMD64. Ubuntu is one of those Linux distributions I'm going to try on the PC I should get once. Ordered all these CD's to spread them among friends and VTK members trough WVS. Ruben, once a big Gentoo fan, switched over to Ubuntu some time ago. I'll find out why he did so, and if what he did is the right thing to do :-)
