The First Geek Wedding At a LinuxFest 93

At the Ohio LinuxFest yesterday, two Linux geeks were married — or had their projects merged into a single trunk, as the officiant, Lord Drachenblut, put it. The wedding of Randy Noseworthy (proprietor of the Juiced Penguin) and Janet Edmonson was announced last week and was live-tweeted by at least one attendee — here's his photo of the happy couple. There's also a video of the ceremony, at which Jon "Maddog" Hall offered a blessing via pre-recorded audio.
Update: 09/26 20:03 GMT by KD : In the comments, anyaristow notes that this wasn't the first such wedding; Rob Landly and Fade were married at Penguicon in 2007, with Steve Jackson officiating and Eric Raymond as best man.

    Anyone else see the quote at the bottom?

    Nope. I've been removing them with stylesheets for ages:

    @-moz-document domain(slashdot.org) {
    /* Remove insipid quote at the bottom of every page */
        div[id="footer"] div[class="rightcontent"] {
            display: none !important;
        #footer .search {
            width: 100% !important;
            text-align: center !important;
            position: inherit !important;
            padding-bottom: 1em !important;
    /* Make the search entry box wider to accomodate more text */
        #footer .search input[name="query"] {
            width: 20em !important;
