Almost ready to emerge from my cocoon

Wow, it's been a long time since my last blog entry. The big news is that I now have an apartment in Berkeley. I'm still not 100% moved (there are books and so on at the old pace), but all the furniture is here, and it's already starting to feel like home.

The past couple of months have been fairly emotionally demanding, and I'm still feeling behind on a bunch of things (a lot of it mundane paperwork seemingly needed for living in modern times), but I sense this period is about to end, and I'm going to become a lot more social again. This apartment is only 4 blocks west of the North Berkeley BART station, and a nice hike to campus, so the logistics of getting together with friends is going to be a lot easier than it was way out in Benicia.

One place in particular I hope to meet up with friends is LinuxWorld in SF, the second week of August. I'll be helping Till Kamppeter man the linuxprinting booth, and will be showing off some of my work with high end graphic arts-quality printing using Ghostscript and my screening technology. I'm not expecting much from the conference itself, but it should be a reasonably good place to reconnect with friends.

Maybe I'll see you there!
