Sound Check

Now that Arthur got my blog on the GSoC planet, I can finally post updates about Eucalyptus and Debian. Speaking of which, after installing Debian, that makes it, what, four OSs on my laptop now?

One thing that's really bugging me, is ec2-tools. To reiterate my point, the license says plain and simple you can only use it with Amazon EC2, yet Ubuntu's community documentation clearly recommends installing them and using them contrary to the license terms. I've heard the only reason why the ec2-tools software even has a license at all was at the behest of Canonical or something. Has anyone seen something that duplicates the ec2-tools functionality as a command line tool?

At any rate, I won't be updating this blog much until finals season ends and the GSoC project officially 'starts'. In completely off-topic thoughts, since when were the Jonas Brothers considered a high-trend Twitter topic? I thought little kids weren't allowed to have Twitter accounts.
