The Long Winter Sleep of Hibernation

Hello! I'm back - there are two reasons why such a long delay in posting:
  1. Slovenia has replaced Slovenian tolar with euro and I was busy adapting couple of applications to the new currency ...
  2. There was no final version of Kanotix 2006. Kano, the maintainer of Kanotix, has decided to replace Debian Sid with Debian Etch as the basis of his distribution. As a consequence, part of Kanotix team created new Linux distribution called sidux (obviously based on Debian Sid). So, the next iteration of doknir will use sidux ...
BTW, regarding the title of this post:
Some boreal (northern) toads can sleep through winter in temperatures of 30 degrees below zero! Their blood has a special substance in it that works like antifreeze. Their burrows may be ice blocked for 8 nine months!
Cheers, Roman
