Ohio Linux Fest

Sep
17

This past weekend was the Ohio LInux Fest held at the Columbus Convention Center. I enjoyed attending it. I got to meet some new people and also see people I have met at the 10 previous events. The talks I went to were good. I thought Mark Spencer's morning keynote about Astrisk was inspiring. The IPV6 trobleshooting talk gave me a better understanding of the "unknowns" of IPV6 on the local network compared to familiar IPV4.  I also got to visit with people I met from previous years as well as meet new people.

School Time

Aug
24

School has started in Ohio. I think the boys were glad to go back even if they said they weren't. Our school distirct's first day of school was really foggy. They delayed school for 2 hours and  then around 8:30am they decided to close it. This is something that NEVER happened when I was their age (closing school because of fog). The ironic part about it is thst since they were doing a staggard start this year, the boys weren't scheduled to go that day.

The summer is winding down, soon there will be the hum of tractors and combines harvesting corn and soybeans in the fields by the house. Today we saw a plane spraying the corn fields by the house. That was pretty neat to watch. From a distance the plane would disappear below the treeline to re-emerge in a different spot heading above the treeline.

New site

Aug
03

I decided to move my website over to drupal 7 on my paid webhosting account. I have decided not to move all the content over to the new site. This will give me a chance to "start over" and utilize some other technology to present photos. I decided to use gallery to handle my photos. It is a seperate web app that is designed for photographs. I will how ever still include pictures in some of my posts which will orginate from this site.
I hope you like it!
