The First Geek Wedding At a LinuxFest

kdawson posted more than 4 years ago | from the merging-the-source dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 93

At the Ohio LinuxFest yesterday, two Linux geeks were married — or had their projects merged into a single trunk, as the officiant, Lord Drachenblut, put it. The wedding of Randy Noseworthy (proprietor of the Juiced Penguin) and Janet Edmonson was announced last week and was live-tweeted by at least one attendee — here's his photo of the happy couple. There's also a video of the ceremony, at which Jon "Maddog" Hall offered a blessing via pre-recorded audio.
Update: 09/26 20:03 GMT by KD : In the comments, anyaristow notes that this wasn't the first such wedding; Rob Landly and Fade were married at Penguicon in 2007, with Steve Jackson officiating and Eric Raymond as best man.

For my part I'm just waiting for the merged processes to fork and create a child process.

There's a section for this. It's called IDLE. (-1, Flamebait)

Nothing belongs in Idle. Idle sucks. I mean, the stupid internet videos/the Onion posts are pretty dumb, but it's the jacked up user interface that is really annoying.

All other sections of Slashdot work just fine. But once you go to Idle, it's like you've entered a dystopian alternate reality where nothing makes sense. I suspect that /. source out the work of developing/designing Idle to the same incompetent morons who're responsible for myspace's craptastic user experience.

Why the hell are the subject & comment boxes 12 characters wide (narrower than the drop-down list for formatting options)? Is Idle supposed to be browsed only from mobile devices? If so, wouldn't it be easier and make more sense to simply have a separate portal for mobile browsers, where content could be displayed using a separate template designed for low resolution screens (and, AFAIK, Slashdot already specifies different style sheets for different media types)? And why does comment preview work properly in all categories except for Idle (e.g. not displaying ordered lists properly.)?

And then the child moves out, dies, and the parents never check up on it or claim the body, so it becomes a zombie?

Re:It will all go well... (0)

A process would only be zombie-fied when the parents died and the child was left by himself not the other way around :)

hairyfeet (841228) | more than 4 years ago | (#29553283)

Hey, while I admit the guy is kinda scary there ain't nothing wrong with having yourself a chubby girl. 1-they know where the good restaurants are. 2.-they not only ain't gonna bitch at you for eating a nice steak, hell they are probably good at cooking and will be happy to whip that sucker up with some home fries. No grazing or eating tofu shit with a chubby girl. 3.- they ain't on a diet, which cuts down the bitchiness by a factor of 100. Ain't nothing bitchier than a hungry woman son. 4.-they are a hell of a lot nicer to cuddle up with, and ain't gonna be bruising the hell out of you with those damned bony elbows.5.-they have an oral fetish...nuff said. Hell you tell her about steak and BJ day [steakandbjday.com] and she'll even mark it on her calendar!

So say what you want about the dude, but leave the chubby girls alone. The last thing we need is more skinny, diet obsessed, bitchy as hell females in this world. The chubby ones are cheaper and low maintenance (you seen how much all that diet shit costs?), glad for the attention, hell of a lot more fun to be with, and don't even bitch about your beer or greasy fries. Ain't nothing wrong with having a chubby girl son, they make life just that much easier.

Ah, the old "let's pretend that chubby is 'normal' instead of fat" trick. Sorry, fatso, but the picture of the bride shows a fat chick, who the gp tried to describe euphemistically as "chubby". In case that's too hard for you to understand, I'll spell it out clearly for you:

Go find someone who thinks your opinion matters and have fun with them.

Re:Lame (4, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#29549895)

You weren't invited anyway, so it's win-win for everybody.

For better or for worse, if you post something on the public Internet you are inviting the public to view it, form opinions of it, and comment on it. Not all such comments will be 100% favorable. If you are fortunate, most comments will be pleasant likes the ones in this discussion but there is absolutely no guarantee that they won't be mostly unfavorable. If that is intolerable, you should reconsider posting it to the public Internet.

It was their moment. As long as it made them happy, that's great.

Sure, but why does having "a moment" automatically mean "a moment in the spotlight?" Can you see how maybe thinking this way leaves room for (or just plain invites) comments from the peanut gallery like the one you're replying to? Can't two people who love each other have a truly meaningful moment without producing a public spectacle for a bunch of strangers? Just a thought.

trytoguess (875793) | more than 4 years ago | (#29550427)

Oh not this again... Yes, the internets are well within their rights to say the couple are ugly, or "Heil Hitler!" for that matter. People are also within their rights to tell such people to not be such jerks.

Re:Lame (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#29550629)

I think my main complaint is that it's just so cliche. People walk into the comments of an article like this, and they're shocked, SHOCKED, that someone has posted something negative. And they just HAVE to try to impart upon said grinch the happiness they should feel for the couple (barf).

Someone, somewhere is gonna think something negative about almost everything, no matter how sappy you find it. Expect it. Get over it.

Re:Lame (1)

trytoguess (875793) | more than 4 years ago | (#29551215)

I don't read any shock in IANAAC, just disgust and annoyance. Even when someone is used to the general assholishness of the net, it's still possible to wage a personal war on certain irritants. I for example have attacked people who believe any criticism on a work of art is an attack on the creator and them. It works on occasion as long as you're calm and polite.

Anyway, you kind of miss my point. If we shouldn't be affected by random crass comments (which are also rather cliche), then the inevitable responses shouldn't be a bother either. A short of "get over it" to the guy saying "get over it" I guess heh.

Re:Lame (1)

indiechild (541156) | more than 4 years ago | (#29553485)

Nobody is expressing shock that some asshole had to insult the happy couple on the Internets. IANAAC was just putting the AC in his rightful place. Equal opportunity freedom of expression and all that.

On a related note, you must be fun at parties!

Re:Lame (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#29552929)

I doubt they wanted a moment in the spotlight. Someone else submitted this.

But congrats to the new couple, marriage is awesome. Don't let the douchebags get you down, have a great life together! =)

True; it was, however, the first such event at the Ohio LinuxFest. I missed the actual wedding, but at the End after Douglas McIlroy's closing keynote address, one of the organizers (I think it was Beth Eicher; I was sitting a little too far back to see) told everyone and cheers went up.
