The Great White North

Well, went to OLS 2001. Talks were okay. The dinners and afterwards were better. Finally got to put more nicks to faces, and it's always good to see the old GIMP gang. GPG/PGP keysigning also went well, and got a few more sigs to my key. It was also nice to meet Federico's new wife, she does seem really nice, and a good fit for Federico. I wish those two the best.

However, I never got to say goodbye to them. My food allergies kicked in at the Ximian party. Had to go home and suffer through a semi-nasty immune system response.

Also fixed some Imlib1 bugs at OLS during some of the talks. Drooled over WINE doing DirectX. Also got to Montreal to meet phil and dria.

Where am I?

A week off does things to one's mind. I need to dig through my research notes and find out what is left to do. I know I have a poster to do...


Manish and myself ended up in a music store in Montreal. Bought some CDs at his suggestion (two Delerium albums, Poem and Karma). Both aren't bad, and are now in my regular playing list. Also listened to my recently acquired copy of Apoptygma Bezerk's Seven. Some of the tracks (Nearer and Mourn) just reverberate in my head for some reason...
