Nearly won the “Debian Release Date Bet”

Published 2005-06-06 in sections English, Debian.

As can be seen on, I did not win the betting on the release time, but I was very close, ~2h away from the winner, Alexander Schmehl, who was himself only ~2h away (the other direction, I'm afraid) from the actual release time. I wonder how well Alexanders' connections to The Cabal are – I hope for him that that there was no foul play involved, as I happen to share the room with him in Helsinki. Just kidding. Congrats, and I'm looking forward to meeting you up there.
