A brief hello from Amsterdam Schiphol airport. I’m not long off the plane from Minneapolis, and have a flight to Edinburgh to catch soon. WineConf was good, I shall post pictures and more news shortly. 🙂
Hmm, it’s been a while since I last blogged. It’s been a busy few weeks. I’ve been up in St Andrews, pottering around. It’s currently freshers week, so I spent all of last week in Venue 1 getting everything ready, and then the first half of this week in venue 1, actually running things. So far so good, anyway.
You’ll have to excuse the brevity of this post, because I’m currently quite tired. Tomorrow (by which I mean in about 6 hours time), I’m heading to the USA for WineConf 2008, the annual Wine developer’s conference, in Minneapolis. This has come about as a result of my work on Google Summer of Code, which I finished in August (although I still intend to contribute features and patches where possible in the future). My flight leaves at 6am however, which means I have to be at the airport by 3-4am, which means setting off at 2-3am from here. I then get into the USA at about 1pm local time, and still have the best part of a day to sit through. I’m going to be very tired by the end of tomorrow, for sure. Then the conference itself is on Saturday and Sunday, and I’ll be flying back on Sunday night, to get back here Monday afternoon!
So that’s about it for me for now. There are perhaps other things I was going to say, but I can’t really remember what, so eh. I’ll try to update you soon, once the new semester has started next week!
