ApacheCon Presentation

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.

Monitor situation

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!!

Work

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 life.... er, get back to work I mean.]
