Off to LugRadio Live and OggCamp

October 22nd, 2009

Wow, it’s been more than a year since the last LRL. How time flies. The memories of Mr Ben in a Raccoon thong are still disturbingly vivid.

I’m off again tomorrow for THE reason to visit Wolverhampton; which has gained a reputation somewhat for hosting truly awesome FLOSS conferences, allowing said conference delegates the run of the town’s pubs and curry houses, and discounts in its hotels.

I’m hoping that this, the final LRL (alledgedly) will be as good as last year’s finalle event – with the added bonus of getting a second event chucked in courtesy of Dan, Fab, and the Ubuntu UK gang literally feet from where I plan to collapse in a heap after the LRL party on Saturday night.

OggCamp sounds an interesting proposition, if only to get an OggCamp mug and check in with the stars of my favourite Linux podcasts. It’s the first barcamp I’ve been to so I’m not 100% sure what to expect. More anon.

Audible

September 20th, 2009

I’ve been listening to Security Now for a year or so now – and I think the not-so-subliminal ads for Audible have finally rubbed off.

I’ve subscribed to Audible.co.uk and, perhaps predictably, chosen The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown as my first audio book. Plan is to listen to it while walking.
