Ubercon this weekend!

24 02 2004


This weekend I’ll be doing registration services for Ubercon down in the Meadowlands in NJ. Ben Cordes will be my second for this stint. If you’re in the area, or want to get into some seriously groovy gaming, stop by! The last 2 events have been a blast, and judging by registration numbers, this event should be the best yet.
BTW, just to be clear… Ubercon is a customer of mine, I’ve been working with them from the beginning. They’re great people, and I’ve met some wonderful folks through their events.

When desktops go bad!

21 02 2004

Ah, the joys of being your own sysadmin. I guess.
For the last 2 years, I’ve been doing probably 90% of my desktop work on Windows based systems. Unfortunately Intuit, my former employer, is a very strong Windows shop, and even though they were mostly okay with me running Linux on my desktop machine, the added time / effort necessary to make it all work together just wasn’t there.
Now that I’m on my own, I can switch back to my natural environment, a Linux desktop.

Briefly – This sucker’s neat. It works, it’s small, it’s always there, and Just Plain Works.
