OLS Update:

If any of you would like to take care of your hotel accomodations early, we have arranged a discount with Les Suites Ottawa. The reservation code is OLS0720.

mglazer will be "watching Michael Moore's every move" eh? Dude, there's a word for that; It's called "stalking."

You just know he secretly wants to be Michael Moore's love slave. :)

We are now accepting paper submissions for OLS 2003. OLS is now in its fifth year, and we're looking forward to seeing everyone again.

dyork, You think that's bad? The other night someone mentioned Don Cherry, and I started to whistle the theme to Hockey Night in Canada! Pretty soon, you'll be saying "in hospital" rather than "in the hospital." You'll start calling your hat a touque.

Yeah, resistance is futile.

Andrew and I have successfully bought a house. It's a 1500 square foot townhouse. It has 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, den, garage and basement. It's about three times the space we're living in now. It'll be good to not feel so cramped.

Yesterday was the worst day of my life.

My dog Tigger died suddenly in her sleep. she just didn't wake up again. Everything just seems so gray without her.

I can't believe she's gone.

I get a secret thrill every time I hear LCA say it's "the OLS of the southern hemisphere." I go Woot! Free Advertising! every time. It's kinda nice to be the standard that everyone compares themselves to. I'm not sure how the hell we pulled it off.

As far as I know, there are only maybe 2 or 3 people showing up for the Kernel Summit and not attending OLS. The rest are staying in Ottawa for the duration. I don't think that hurts us at all. The theory was that by holding the Kernel Summit before OLS, more people would attend both events, although I personally think that the Kernel Summit benefited a little more from this arrangement than OLS did. We always ask the attendees what they thought of the event, and usually they say, "too much content...brain fried!" and I guess that's a good thing. I wonder what effect the KS will have on their responses.

As for the negative vibes aspect of it, I am completely unqualified to comment. So yeah, you'll have to take that up with someone more knowledgeable than I.

Tigger has an ear infection. I have to squirt medicine in her ears twice a day. She doesn't like it. Oh well, it's only for 2 weeks, we're half way through. Golden Retrievers get ear infections a lot, it's to be expected, especially as they get older.

We got four boxes delivered to us from HP yesterday. We've got one Omnibook, five E-PCs, and ten Procurve switches to give away.

I have decided to dye my hair red. I'm a bit sick of blonde. I think a change would do me some good. Maybe I'll do it tonight.

LotR: There are people here who will consistently crank out crappy diary entries. But I've never really believed in openly criticizing another's diary, because you never know when you'll accidentally say something stupid and someone else will think, "Wow, this diary makes no sense. This is utter crap!" However, I will often think to myself, "Wow, this diary makes no sense. This is utter crap!" But I'll never say it. I'm too polite. Or chicken. Or something like that.

Besides, I've always thought at least 50% of my diary entries were crap.

We are doing the final check of the OLS show guide. It goes out for printing today!

We get the t-shirts soon.

We're sold out, but I still need to collect money from seven people. They are in danger of losing their spots!
