Zen and the art of Living

The canvas of life is too wide to be painted all over with the small brush we are born with. Its only when you learn not to make an effort to paint it, but to let the color of the canvas be the color of your paint, that you’ll be able to attain the pleasure of completing the task.

Perfection, in any walk of life, is about the stillness thats inside the artist and his work. Its about calm. Where, there is perfection, cant be any turbulence.

Shibumi – The art of effortless perfection.

Subject: [Discuss] Meaning of the Debian Swirl

Fabio asked what the Debian Swirl means.

It’s “magic smoke”. Electrical engineer lore is that when you burn out
an electronic component, you cause the “magic smoke” that makes it work
to be released. Once the magic smoke is gone, the component doesn’t work
any longer. Debian is supposed to be the magic smoke that makes your
computer work.


That is soo cool.
