It's not really bugday 2.5.3 (more like at least 80+ for me, at least) but
to celebrate all the hard work the devels have been doing to stabilize GNOME
2.5, it's probably time to either help them out by cleaning out bugzilla or
by filling up their inboxes with love.[1]

What is this thing you call 'bug day'?
======================================

Bug day is a day we get together and eat deep fried locusts.[2] Actually,
not really- it's a day we get together and find bugs and clean bugzilla so
that developers can get more work done. They need all the help they can get,
since I'm told our developers are generally stoned.[3]

Who can help at a bug day?
==========================

Virtually anyone. Bug day can be for the very timid, the very quiet, or the
very persistent. Mostly what you need is a decent grasp of English, a
user-level knowledge of GNOME, and 30 or so minutes of the day. You /don't/
need to have any programming ability, any prior experience with QA, or even
a deep understanding of GNOME. On the other hand, if you do have programming
ability, it's also a great way to get involved- after a few bug days, you
can figure out what needs help in gnome quickly and apply your talents
there, like esteemed gnome luminaries aes and shaunm.

I'm sold- it sounds like the greatest thing ever[4]- how do I join?
===================================================================

Bug day is from 8:30AM EST to 8:30PMEST tomorrow (Thursday)- that's
13:30UTC->01:30UTC.
http://timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=5&month=2&year=2004&hou
r=8&min=30&sec=0&p1=179

Join us in #bugs on irc.gnome.org during that time, and we'll chill and
share the bugzilla love.

Luis, this was the second greatest bugday announcement[5] of all time, but I
still have questions.
=================================

Thanks for the compliment. The FAQ is here:
http://developer.gnome.org/projects/bugsquad/triage/faq.html

See you all tomorrow:
Luis

All important footnotes:
========================

[1] love, for the purposes of this exercise, being defined as 'bugzilla
mail.' It's really a great definition, in my mind, since that makes me like
the most loved person on the planet. Which isn't bad, right?

[2] http://thaibugs.com/edible%20insects.htm

[3] http://www.illusionary.com/GNOMEvKDE.html

[4] http://www.cafeshops.com/tarnished.9454841 <- Project Utopia is actually
the greatest thing ever, but Bug Day is close

[5]http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gnome-love/2002-December/msg00001.html
 It's a Kubrick reference. It wins. Completely.

I think there is no UI for that. But a little playing with gconf-editor
should do it: you need to set the /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/
run_command_N gconf key (where 1 <= N <= 12) to the key combination, and
then the corresponding /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_N
gconf key to the command you want to run.

This should be a FAQ...

It's doesn't seem to work
I would go to gconf-editor
edit the run_command_N and all the key would default to that keybinding
! I I nuked metacity and still doesn't work. I edited all the key back
to disabled but the keep on defaulting.
Weird.

Oh btw isn't it balsa that you can use?

Hello,

I've googled all over and can't find an answer to this.

How can I fix the gnome screen saver so that it uses up the entire
screen?
I have a laptop that does 1024x768, and if the screensaver kicks in on
that, it looks fine.
But I also dock my laptop at work, and the external monitor does
1280x1024. When the screensaver kicks in here, it only uses 1024x768 of
the the screen, leaving the remaining desktop still visible.

I'm running FreeBSD 4.9, but I also had this same problem when I ran
RedHat 9 and Fedora.
When I use KDE (which I don't even have installed anymore), the
screensaver worked fine.

Thanks for any input/advice/answer.

-DW
