Laptop preped...bag packed. Off to work then to catch my plane to Boston for the Gnome Summit.

See you all there!

Ok...I lied. I am going to Boston for the Gnome Summit. It is gonna kick ass. Gotta pack now and be ready to catch my flight at 6:30AM Saturday morning right after work. Just have to make sure to take the directions for the T with me.

See everyone in Boston!

Yup...no Boston for me this year. I just can not afford it on my UPS Salary, so unless someone is willing to pay for my airfare...no go.

I am going to try and get a hold of Coaster's source this week so I can try to see if I can get a release out or weather to dump the project. Hopefully it is the former and not the latter.

Ooops...too much beer in 3 days.


I am not really passed out...just pretending to be with all the empties on the table.

The Ohio LinuxFest 2005 is now over. Let me tell you. I could not be more proud to be involved with such a team like the one we have. This year me met out goals and some. Total turnout was 726. I met some really kick ass people and probably drank more then I normally do. My normal is pretty bad. I don't buy food, I buy beer.

Plenty of pictures where taken and I hope everyone gets those up somewhere for me to laugh and make fun of. Awesome time at the bars the last two nights. Gotta love seeing those fine Columbus women in their nights best.

Only a few more days till the Ohio LinuxFest 2005! If you are still wanting to go, you better register now! Goto http://www.ohiolinux.org to pre-register for the event. This year is looking more and more like it will be the biggest event in the midwest...maybe even the east coast. Awesome!

I will be spending the rest of the week working on event material and preparing my Gnome presentation if we need it. I will be the only Gnome Foundation member there that I know of, so I will have to represent the best I can. No Gnome booth :(. Just don't have the resources to do it this year. If I can recruit some more Gnomers for next year, we are set.

Not sure if I am going to be able to make the trip to Boston this year like I had planned. Money has been tight and the car itself needs a bit of work if I am to make it in one piece. Unless I find some hidden funds somewhere or get a car I can trust, don't plan on my being at thye Summit this year.

Ohio LinuxFest 2005 is only 5 days away. Awesome!

Updated my rhythmbox cvs today. DAAP support is working. Other then a small pointer cast error in the daap code, things went pretty smooth. I can share and play shared music within rhythmbox. Now all we need is ipod support to include uploading and podcasting. I also have been looking into airtunes support the last week or so. There is a mono/.net project called JustePort that has limited capabilites that can be used to learn how to do the streaming in rhythmbox.

I now now that one of the first priorities is to update the old rhythmbox website to reflect the new development gaines and future direction of the project. NOt to mention, the site just needs an overhaul.

So I was going to see how useful ifolder was going to be for me but I cannot get simias to compile on my ubuntu box. I don't want a central server, but a p2p setup and I thought this could be done through bonjour.

On to another project...

Steelers won! I don't want to talk about OSU. Other then that, my weekend is not too bad. Decided to relax today after my roommate and I went to BW3s to watch the Steelers. Totally not like me for a Sunday. I figured it was time to sit down and look at some stale projects of mine and close or update them.

I have been spending a lot of time reorganizing files between oses and between desktop and laptop. Once everything is synced the way I want, It will allow me to be able to maintain projects a little better then I do now.

Not sure what projects are going to become priority, but I am planning on working more on Gnome overall then just specific areas. Now that 2.12 is out the door, I want to see some more media specific things come in 2.14 like better ipod and disc support.
