10:12am (talking about how gross oonagi is with
My presentation is coming along quite nicely. I suspect
I'll be done with writing it by Friday night and then on
Saturday I'll re-read everything trhough, make corrections
and then put it into HTML format. I called the travel
agency that the ApacheCon people go through and found out
that if I wanted to leave the Saturday morning after the
conference is over that it was going to cost $1269. But if I
left on Sunday it would only cost $350. That's ridiculous.
What's more is that Camelot Communications (the people
organizing the conference) are trying to get buy with only
paying 2 nights stay for speakers, even though if one
attended the whole conference it would be 3 nights stay.
What a jip.
Well despite the ApacheCon thing, everthing else
yesterday went ok. Especially after I came back from lunch
at Irish Lion and found a big 19" monitor box addressed to
me in the front of the office. To note, I sent KDS back my
17" Radius brand monitor for repairs or replacement after it
broke a few weeks ago. What service, they probably didn't
have an exact replacement so they instead way cheered me up
by sending me this kickass 19" monitor. What joy!!
At work I've been writing a frontpage extensions
re-initialization program in Perl. What it will do is
re-install the frontpage extensions for a user according to
the setup we have in /etc/skel. This will be useful because
we have been getting requests from users that seem to want
to just fuck up what we've setup for them. Re-initializing
a frontpage extension setup was tedious enough to warrant
writing this script. I will probably release the program
eventually after we have tested it initially.
[Sit back and enjoy
er, get back to work I mean.]
