See how that last entry says that I'm back from Montreal? I'm in Montreal again. I'm allegedly responsible for the GNOME booth at the Montreal Linux Expo that ends tomorrow.

Our train hit a car on the way up here. To drive the point home about how little a train cares about things in its way, consider that I was actually unsure whether the train had hit something, or had just applied the brakes suddenly. Don't fuck around with the trains, mm'kay?

I just got back from Globe again, and the same comments pretty much apply this time around too. Steak tartar ("You know that's not cooked, right? I've had a couple of people look very surprised when I bring this out."), bring it on.

Back to Ottawa tomorrow evening, to return to some serious XFS and Achtung hacking. I have so much to get done in the next 8 weeks, it is unfunny. We really, really want to release a 0.1 version for everyone to use at OLS, which means getting it out at least 4 weeks before the show. I know that most people won't even start their slides until the day before, but some definitely will. Our goal (well, my goal anyways) is to have 100% speaker participation. I'm so glad that I'm not speaking this year--I'll be too busy convincing everyone to use my software.
