First interview ready (Re: more content for times.d.n: developers interviews)


Ok, I'm ready to post the first interview.

Since this is the first posting I'm preparing: could somebody with access on 
thallo have a look at it (/org/times.debian.net/tmp/interview-steinke) and 
comment on formatting problems?  I use h1, h2, tt, p, i, a HTML tags and 
[lr]dquo, mdash entities.

Also: is just mentioning the category in the header enough?  I think the 
interviews should have their own category as none of the existing ones fit.

thanks & cheers

Now, with penguins, (cuddly such), "contented" means it has either just
gotten laid, or it's stuffed on herring. Take it from me, I'm an expert
on penguins, those are really the only two options.
