Amount of content present looks well judged, given the limited resources we have to do a newsdesk! About a line or so every two days until things quieten down. Really like the google logo, but worth checking FAQs to see if we really can use it - I know it's been discussed before. Might be safer to use a summer-of-code google logo instead - which I know we can - or have you already checked? (I thought google-code was wider than just GSoC). James 15:55, 27 March 2008 (PDT)

  • Gale: Google-code is definitely wider than GSoC but I could not find anything in the GSoC FAQs about a logo, except the GSoC logo for 2007 . I can't find a GSoC logo for 2008, so followed Vaughan's idea where he used the Google-code logo on the main web site. I did find a project announcing its 2008 mentorship that uses the exact same GSoC image with the year removed . I think that looks pretty dreary myself (summer = black?) but I can use that for want of a better one if you prefer?

I think the next thing for the Handy Hints might be IRC or at least a warning about the dangers thereof - I guess this audience will know all about IRC anyway? I could at the same time add some meat to Irc - I have been meaning to add some instructions there for the Pidgin  client which I have, but never did it. If I am going to do instructions for one client (OK the GSoC students don't need it but it would be nice to raise awareness of the channel), would Pidgin be best, or Chatzilla? Which one caused you all the grief? - Gale
