Mirror traffic during the last day of LCA 2007

It seems obvious to me that videos of LCA 2007 are good. Specifically:

Updated: linux.conf.au 2007 MythTV tutorial homework

Share

I spent the afternoon updating the linux.conf.au MythTV tutorial homework. I did all the homework on a VMWare virtual machine, and it took me about four hours to complete, given that compilation was slow for me in the virtual machine, but downloading was fast.

Next steps are adding ffmpeg setup to the homework, and putting the finished virtual machine online so that lazy people can just download the crazily large file.

First cut of the tutorial homework is ready

Share

Stewart and I are just now putting the finishing touches on our MythTV tutorial for linux.conf.au. Because it’s a tutorial and is therefore meant to be hands one we want people to come along with a machine which is configured so it can take part in a bunch of the demos. To that end we have set homework!

Note that it’s currently a draft, because I’m pretty sure there will be some stuff in there about ffmpeg, but I wanted to get it out so that people can get an idea of what we want to cover, and get a start on the homework.

One other option is for me to make a VMWare image of a machine once all the homework is done available. Would people find that useful? It would be pretty big.

Hypothetically speaking

Share

Hypothetically speaking, if you needed to write a four hour long presentation (probably around 200 slides), shared with another speaker, and wanted to keep the style consistent and conforming with your approved corporate style, how would you do it?

I’m thinking of some sort of intermediate language, which can then be used to generate slides from a template? Is there anything like that out there?
