    Eric's stuff is now at www.catb.org. Scuttlebutt has it that the random redirects are tuxedo.org's WebMaster's way of getting people to update their links.

    • Thanks; that's just what I was looking for. Google didn't know it yet, at least not in the first few links, but I did find this [216.239.37.100] after reading your post, which leads to catb.org. Guess we better get started letting Google know where the new preferred location for Eric Raymond [catb.org] is.

      • Whose preference? :) (Eric S. Raymond [advogato.org]).

        • In conclusion to my previous post, I'll just say don't flip the bozo bit [petdance.com] on Eric Raymond just because of his stance on weapons. A lot of what he says is still worth your thought. (Thinking about the weapons issue is, too, even if you don't agree.)

          I find it ironic that somewhere back there people were putting forth Raymond as a more tolerable spokesman than Stallman. Perhaps most of that sentiment came from Raymond himself, though. ;)

            I don't believe I'm on the record anywhere on the topic of gun control. This is not the issue.

            I found his comments inappropriate. He's a self-described and self-appointed spokesman for Linux and Open Source. He used that self-appointed position to push his other views that have absolutely nothing to do with Linux or Open Source. Worse, he tried to associate his views with the rest of use who have, at one point or another, identified with Linux or Open Source. (Yes, he did include a disclaimer. Why

            • I don't ignore ESR because he likes guns. I ignore him because -- for example -- he wrote that it is reasonable to kill an airport security screener [blogspot.com].

              Oh, if only I were making it up.
              • Hmm, yeah, kind of hard to get around that one. He does seem to say he doesn't think things have gotten that bad, yet, and I bet he flies without shooting the screeners.

                Myself, I thank security screeners. I really made some guy's day in London last April; I must have been the only one. (Meanwhile, the American Airlines pilot travelling in our group cheerfully had his fingernail clipper confiscated.)
