ok, no internet access from home has meant I haven't updated this as much as I should have done.
distrowars: this was a cool event organised by the Irish LUG, Telsa + other half had told me about it a while ago and I had been looking forwards to it for ages. Kinda sucked that I didn't know until about 6 days before the event that I could actually go. This meant a rushed flight booking,
getting there the day before the event and a hotel 30 mins walk from the center of dublin but it was cool. I got to meet up with jf who I met at the UKUUG Linux event in Manchester earlier this year. I also spent most of the weekend with davej and another friend that I knew from university. I met mikegtn and a lot of other people whose names I can't really remember. Lots of beer was drunk and most importantly a lot of it was drunk in a brewery yay!
return from .ie was annoying due to a 3 hour delay, this had been preceeded by a 1 hour delay on the flight out. I had also managed to get rid of all my .ie currency (which seems to consist of strange moon coins) before finding out about the 3 hour delay and due to a dead cashpoint spent a distressingly long amount of time trying to find some place in the departure loung that would sell me food on my visa card, before finding out that a small cafe right next to my departure gate was the only place that would serve me but I had discounted it as being too small.
Not much else has been going on, new job is ok and I'm now trying to organise a talk for the SWLUG (no I'm not giving the talk).
