Late September Bullets

Let’s clear out some links and ideas and things with a bullet post.

  • Things have been a little hectic lately. Hence no posts. Sorry about that. Have to get back into the habit of posting regularly.
  • Also, recent job searches have reinforced my inner critic. I’m settling in at Open Text, and people are really cool here, so I think I can relax a bit and get back to posting.
  • Got back from Liz and Chris’ wedding last night. It was lovely, and I’m glad Ellen and I could be there. And it was awesome to get the gang back together.
  • For reasons to complicated to go into here, Ellen and I stayed stayed over night in Montreal.
  • All in all, I drove about 1800km this weekend. I think that’s a record. I’m still recovering.
  • One nice thing is I’m now all caught up on Big Finish Doctor Who audios.
  • Went to TIFF the previous weekend (and briefly the one before that). Saw three movies: The Trotsky, Bad Lietenant and Ong Bak 2. All three were good in their own way. The Trotsky was wonderful.
  • Helped out with the Royal Medieval Faire again, just doing little volunteer jobs. May or may not do it again next year. I’ve got a lot of stuff going on right now. Speaking of…
  • Kwartzlab! I’m a member, and haven’t been quite as involved in the initial build-out as I wanted to be. The grand opening is Thursday! And I can’t go. insert frowny face. But! I’ve got some cool project ideas I need to find time to work on.
  • I’m working on throwing together a release party for Ubuntu 9.10 in the ‘Lab.
  • Tonight I’m debating whether I should help out at the ‘lab, go to DevHouse or get groceries. I think I have to get groceries. :/
  • A bunch of other stuff happened since Worldcon (the subject of my last post), but you should probably just be following me on Twitter for bullet-equivalents. Just check the sidebar!
  • Anything you’d like me to write about?
