    Phoronix: X.Org Developers Raid The Zoo

    Activities for the second day of the 2008 X Developers' Summit are now over. The day ended with the X developers in attendance receiving a private tour of the Edinburgh Zoo, the venue for this event.

          Didn't know what they'd identified him with- one of my friends had the good fortune to see him doing an "inspection" run over the troops during the tattoo, which is why I'd known about him.
