Ubuntu Pennsylvania – Philly Ubuntu Karmic Koala (9.10) Release Party

Yesterday we held the Philadelphia Karmic Koala 9.10 Release/Halloween Party over at Manayunk Diner in Manayunk. We used this place for the Jaunty release party and once again it turned out to be a great venue, thanks again to Jim Fisher for securing it for us, even if he couldn’t make it out to the event this time around.

Huge thanks to everyone who came out, I had a blash, a few of us even dressed up!


And a total of 13 attendees, including one fellow who joined us from the Ubuntu Maryland team since he was in town, and a couple who made the trek over from New Jersey.

We enjoyed lots of chatting about Ubuntu and Karmic, eating french toast and waffles, drinking milkshakes and beer, and indulging in decadent diner desserts.

When I got home last night I ended up taking the plunge on my primary desktop to Xubuntu 9.10 – so far? No issues, a couple “papercut” bugs from Jaunty have been fixed, and in general I’m very happy. Great job Xubuntu crew!

    Nice… I’m enjoying 9.10, very smooth… yes, that is the best way to describe it at the moment – smooth and sophisticated.

    I see you had some ‘French Toast’ – please tell me it’s the one where bread is dipped into whisked egg, and then fried? I ask because in my home town we used to call this delectable treat ‘French Toast’, and where I am at the moment they call it ‘eggy bread’…. argh…madness.

    Yep! French toast is bread dipped in egg (and sometimes a little milk) and fried in a pan on the stove :) A little powdered sugar or cinnamon may be put on top, along with butter and syrup. Yum!

    “Eggy bread?” Hehe.

    Definitely egg/milk mixture. You need the milk so you get a nice even emulsion out of the whipped egg. It’s the emulsion that gives you that nice golden brown goodness.

    For bread, stick with quality thick-sliced Italian.
