Spent some time last night working on my DNS server so that it’s ready for the talk on Saturday… I’m currently having pain getting xinetd to write back to the UDP connection. I need to look into this further…

Cross the 100 linux CDs burnt barrier… So far I think I am up to about 105. Not bad for about 4 CLUGs.

Spent some time installing ISYS desktop today in an attempt to debug why our synonym searches don’t see to do what I want them to — I am hoping it is something I have done wrong. If this doesn’t work out then the next step is to contact one of the people I know at ISYS and see what they have to say…

Well, an exam today (in the afternoon), and then all I have left on the todo list for this week is preparing for my CLUG talk, and my talk at the AUUG Canberra chapter mini-conference thingie. I think I care more about preparing for the mini-conference than I do for the LUG at this stage, as we already have four talks and a competition judging lined up for this month — we have no hope of getting through all of that in the normal time allocated, and people like to chat during pizza.

I suspect people wont be keen to listen to more talking during the pizza itself.

Once I have done the talk at the AUUG mini-conference, then I will be ready to announce to the general world what I have been working on (and am talking about). It is nothing special, but is a little quirky, and I wanted to let AUUG run with it first…

Final year project is nearly over. The talk went well, now we just need to hand in the thesis and documentation. Then I can do honours.

I have documentation due, an exam, a local LUG talk, and a conference talk, all this coming week. I guess that makes me still busy…
