Linuxcare Europe finally closes door and I get to work to try and make sure that all my former colleagues are able to secure paying work as soon as possible. Confusion and panic reigns supreme and the usual gutter level IT journalists creep out of the woodwork.
Spoke to some of my former colleagues at LC in 650 Townsend and they are relaxed and happy at the changes which is good. Shame that taking VC means you have to take their guys with the cash, this could have been avoided.
Would hate to see LC die, there is a place in the market for them and they still have good people there who compliment and support the OpenSource model.
No time today to make GLLUG meeting in London thanks to crap British Rail and just too much work on plate. HantsLUG meeting tomorrow also looks unlikely although I'll sit up all night burning piles of CDs for them and getting their OSDN packs ready.
Have spoken to Mark Lewis about setting up a UK LUG team competition to increase the awareness of what is actually achievable and and also to get public awareness of just how much activity there is in the UK.
