Ubuntu

I'm going crazy with these Ubuntu codenames.
Like that guy on #xmonad:

I'm trying to get xmonad up and running in ubuntu gutsy. There seem to be packages for hardy, but not gutsy.

Like I know whether hardy comes after gutsy or not.

It's worth nothing that ...

In one article I came across the following sentence: "It’s worth noting that the typically fluid-like swirly-vortex phenomenon only happens in viscous fluids, arising because of the blurring effect viscosity has on fluid velocities."

I understood "it worth nothing" as "it's obvious", but wanted to check it. The dictionary translated it as "doesn't have any worth". Not too meaningful here. So I googled for it and found this post. To tell the truth, I couldn't understand what's going on. That guy just posted google link for the same query that I used to find him -- what did he mean? It took a minute for me to notice that tiny "h" letter that made the difference. Yeah, it's really worth noting...

Summer of Code mailing list

I had to unsubscribe from google-summer-of-code-discuss@googlegroups.com mailing list. I've never seen so many people unable to read neither FAQ nor mailing list archives. Awful.
