Just got back from a weekend conference on the Golden side of things. The speakers were very motivational and awesome. Despite my current lack of laptop, I feel awesome and empowered. This post was intended to be short but the best laid plans of mice and men and all that 😛 , it would be an audio blog, but Audacity is still playing hide and go seek with the USB mic and my ac adaptor melted some of the metal of it and the new one doesn’t come to tommorow.
So I have gone the entire weekend without net and laptop which has been more challenging than anticipated. Hopefully I get the adaptor on Monday, full battery charge by end of Monday. USB floppy drive for Bios update by Tuesday and Thecus N1200 by Wednesday( I am so excited.)
Good news is DVB-T works with open source driver and new kernel and the snr issues are gone.
The Sun Seminar on HPC was awesome, especially the part on locking conditions, errors and states and stuff with autopar. But both the Sun seminar and the weekend conference I went to were riddled with Deja Vu and premonitions coming true.
I just realised last week that I could do speed caculus, talk about a wake up call. That is like going from reading slowly aloud, to speed reading :).
It is late, so I am going to head off.
Did you ever miss out on an oppurtunity because you couldn’t encourage yourself to take it ? How did you reckon this lack of catching that butterfly (see previous post to understand reference / metaphor) affected your feelings and life ?
Remember to just keep swimming (like Dory says) but make sure you head upstream. Because only dead fish swim downstream (something I heard at the conference.)
Best wishes and lots of fun to all of you,
