I think it’s June 2009 :)

Many thanks for your good wishes, from me and from my wife! 
(I guess Leandro would say thank you, too, if he already understood what it 
means ;) )

I don’t intend to be off forever, and not for 13 years, either :)

I just can’t stop completely: 

arnebab: !Emacs is in !Arch !Hurd → 
http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/news/2010-09.html ⇒ Arch now has a complete 
Hurd OS; what more do you need? ;)

tekk: @arnebab gcc, if the prophecy is to be believed. "When completed, the 
GNU system will be HURD, EMACS, and gcc"

arnebab: @tekk THE PROPHECY HAS COME TRUE! ALL HAIL THE !GNU! ;) *gg* →

All in all a great month of the Hurd! Many thanks for taking a stand while I’m 
figuring out how to create a place for the coexistence of Leandro, Hurd, 
roleplaying, keyboard optimization and my studies (soon to be work – less than 
2 month to complete my physics diploma thesis).

Best wishes,
