Tired

    So, another late night last night... We got home at midnight after dropping speakers home after the speakers dinner, and I was up a six AM... This is the fourth late night in a row for me, which is quite out of character as I am much more of a morning person than anything else. If you see me looking like I might die or something, please be gentle.

It's all good

    Apparently it's all good. We've had most people registered now, and we've certainly handed out the vast majority of the bags. Mini conferences are running at the moment, and people seem generally happy. I can't say that anything is broken.

    There are certainly lots of people floating around taking pictures. Hopefully these will appear sometime on the web, which will mean I can link to them. I really can't think of anything else to say at the moment, so I wont...

Up six hours later, and let's do it all again

    Today is the first day of mini conferences, and the day we're expecting most people to register. So, Up I get after my six hours sleep (I'm an 8 hour a night kinda guy), shower, shave, and off I go in the L1n000ks P4rt44444y Buz once more.

It's leaking captain!

    Herm. Information about the LCA video stuff seems to be leaking out... I don't think that's a big problem, but it hasn't been officially announced yet. I assume that happens sometime tomorrow.

Tired

    After driving people to Yass for Jeff and Pia's wedding party. The trip was good, although as a Debian victim (as opposed to developer) it was odd to be driving a bus full of Debian developers. No one died though, so it must have gone well.

    Lots of people already registered for the conference, which is good. Signage up on campus, and people seem to like the schwag. I've put some photos I took the other day online if you're interested.

LCA kernel hacking tutorial homework

    Michael Davies is excited about the kernel hacking tutorial at LCA... Hopefully he'll have done his homework:

    Please do some preparation if you are attending the Kernel Hacking Tutorial

    If you are planning on attending the Linux Kernel Hacking Tutorial, you will need to bring a laptop, which has been prepared with the source code, and emulator. These are available at http://linux.conf.au/kernel-tute/ . The preparation depends on some Linux experience: if you have trouble with the preparations, you will have even more trouble in the tutorial, so I suggest Rasmus' excellent session next door.

    If you have not done the preparation, we will not wait for you!

    So yes there is some homework, however this should make the tutorial more interesting and rewarding for you, if you do the preparation for the tutorial you will get a lot more out of the day. Anyone whining in the tutorial that they are not ready or do not know how to use 'make' will be ignored or possibly even made fun of (Rusty likes a good scapegoat for the easy humour points that can be accrued)

Going to Jeff and Pia's wedding after party? So am I and I've got a minibus

'Twas the night before the conference

    As far as I am concerned LCA 2005 really starts today. That makes the last organisers meeting we had last night the night before the conference. The meeting was boring. There was nothing to discuss really, which I suspect is a very good sign. Everything that actually mattered is sorted out, so we ended up talking about little things for about two hours.

    Anyways, next step for the conference for me: make some announcements today (remember those guys in N101?) and help the removalists move a billion boxes of merchandising from my garage to the conference venue.

The guys in N101...

    So, there are these guys in N101 of the Computing Science department at ANU doing stuff which hasn't been announced yet. It's going to be cool though... I believe we'll be ready to announce something in the next day or so. So why this post? Just trying to encourage you to get psyched up for LCA.
