Ubuntu Community Council 2009 elections

If you are an Ubuntu member, you have properly just recently received a mail informing you that voting on the Ubuntu Community Council is now open, and will continue until Tuesday 6 October 2009 at 13:00 UTC.

If you are curious about who the candidates are, here is the list:

If you feel like voting (and are a Ubuntu member) you really should go over the list and see for your self who you think is best suited for a seat on the Community Council.

You have to assign each candidate a rank from one to twelve, with one being most prefered, twelve least. More info on the voting method here. See also

And no, you can’t vote for (or against) Mark. If you could, he wouldn’t be the sabdfl :)

The Donnas – Bitchin’

I went to Stengade 30 Monday night to see The Donnas live. I have been enjoying their music for quite some time, so when I saw they were coming to Copenhagen I got my ticket and went to see them.
They played a mix of both tunes from their new album (titled Bitchin’) and a few older numbers. They did fire up the party, the lead singer knew how to get the crowd going and all in all it was a great concert!

We also had an election here in Denmark yesterday. At the end of the day the present government seems to keep its support in parliament. I’m not happy with that, but I did see it coming, so I didn’t get my hopes up. Which is good, no one, especially me, likes to have their hopes crushed.
