GNOME Dictionary

Put Red Hat on an old box we had for daughter Nora because her main computer is on the fritz, and she’s been poking around it a bit.

“You know what I love about Linux?” she announced this afternoon. “The dictionary.”

She’s talking about the little GNOME dictionary, what sits on the panel and hooks into the servers. It’s a handy little tool, for which she has not a good Windows alternative.

And I helped make it. I do the docs and a bit of the bugzilla work on it these days. Nora didn’t know this. It was a big thrill for both of us, a connection to all this wacky GNOME stuff dad spends so much time working on.
