Mmmm... Summer....

Oh, it feels so good to be done. I think I'm going to spend today cleaning up the trail of books, notes, print-outs of other people's source code, and dirty dishes I've left lying around the past couple weeks. Jane'll be happy. And maybe if the weather gets better, I can spend time reading and drinking beer on my virtual lawn (I've astroturfed my balcony).

Radio Announcers

Just heard a speako (the vocal equivalent of a typo) on the Guelph radio station. They just announced that we'd be getting 75 centimetres of rain today! Ha! I think she meant 75 millimetres... well... I hope she did ;) This is good, though. Southern Ontario has been in drought conditions for about the past 2 years so any precipitation is welcome.

Ottawa Linux Symposium

My friends Alex, Aaron, and I have decided that we're definitely going to OLS (is that an accepted abbreviation?). This'll be my first Linux conference, so I'm really excited. I've been to a bunch of concerts at the Congress Centre before (Tea Party, Dave Matthews, New Year's Eve bash ... maybe more), but nothing like this. I'll probably stay at my mom's place in Almonte. She won't be there (she going to England to visit my grandparents), but my brother will be, and I don't see him enough, so it'll be nice to hang out with him a bit.
