linux.conf.au 2003:

The Linux.Conf.Au 2003 CD of proceedings are now available. We've posted out CDs to all the attendees, and the ISO image is available from our many mirrors, including via BitTorrent here. The CD includes all the papers, as well as audio recordings of all the presentations, in Ogg/Speex format.


I forgot to note in my last entry that I was elected president of UCC at the AGM. So far, I haven't done that much, except practice my delegation skills :-). After several years of doing most of the day-to-day clubroom stuff, it's nice to be able to tell someone else to do it :-).

Uni is going ok, but I need to actually start studying and going to (at least some) lectures :-(. Object-Oriented Programming this year seems quite decent, it's covering Eiffel and Smalltalk, instead of just more "More Java", which is apparently what it covered in previous years.

My job as a support droid for the uni's student internet service got converted into a fulltime position, so now I only have 6 hours/fortnight instead of 8 hours/week (previously the job was shared between 5 casuals).
