LFTP, I Love You
lftp rocks. I always loved it in the past as it let me do tab completion in FTP, but now I discover that it not only handles HTTP and SFTP, but has a mirror command.
lftp -c mirror sftp://o-hand.com/srv/foo/bar ftp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/pub/bar
That is very, very useful right now.

Well, I just got back from the Desktop Linux Summit to find an email awaiting me telling me that my proposal for a talk on NetworkManager was rejected this year for GUADEC. ... I can see why getting contributors into GNOME is rather difficult. Even though I'm going to continue working on GNOME because I'm paid to, it's rather disheartening to go through this. Looks like it will start to be a work-only thing instead of a work-and-free-time thing. To all you who have somehow made it into the "in crowd", have fun in Catalonia. I probably won't be going.
To be fair there were two Network Manager talks submitted, one by Christopher and another by Robert Love. What is worse: telling one of the two that their talk isn't accepted, or having two talks at GUADEC on the same subject?
