It was nice today to connect with a few of Utah's software and technology leaders at the CTO breakfast that Phil Windley organizes.
I'm by no means a CTO, but an aspiring CTO, and enjoy networking with other like-minded people. This week I got to meet about 13 others, and some of the conversation we had was around working from home, VMWare, Adobe's AIR, Flex, DNS, Google, and a handful of other things. Here is Phil's wrap up.
The conference was a success in terms of our Supermicro Exhibition. To me, there seemed to be a smaller crowd in attendance - but I couldn't say for sure.
Take a peek at the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) photos that I took. The laptop is considerably smaller than I had thought it might be, but makes sense for kids. I wish this was available to the general public, and available in the US. If it was, I'd pick up a couple for my kids right away.
So I got set for attending LinuxWorld 2007 today. It's August 6-9 at the Mascone Center in San Francisco, CA.
If you're there and want to meet up, I'll most-likely be working in the Supermicro booth, as that's my employer. If you want/need a free Exhibit Hall pass, go claim one at:
My first post to the PLUG blog. I usually keep my Flickr stream updated with a photo blog, since we take quite a bit of photos as a family, and I keep bees as a hobby (beekeeping).
This is my first time joining a LUG, and I hope to learn a lot and contribute somehow in the future.

I have recently been reading a book called Ubuntu Hacks by Jonathan Oxer, Kyle Rankin & Bill Childers, published by O'Reilly and Associates. If you don't know by now, Ubuntu is my Linux distribution of choice, but I'm not completely up to speed on getting the most out of it. It's certainly much easier to use than Windows ever was for me, but that doesn't mean it's not without its faults and pitfalls. I didn't expect to become a Grand Ubuntu Master by reading a single book, but I was hoping to pick up a few tips and tricks. As much as I love O'Reilly, I felt that if I didn't provide a completely objective review, I would be performing a disservice to the publisher, the authors, and anyone that read my review.
Those of you who have seen me in recent months know that all I want for Christmas is that one front tooth. My unfortunate dental situation has led me to a friendly relationship with my periodontist, and more importantly, his staff. Faxing them a copy of the gazpacho recipe that I came up with when they had me on cold foods for two days didn't hurt. As I pulled into the parking lot outside their office, I realized that I needed something to read in the waiting room. The staff has befriended me, but they still have too much work to do to spend all day chatting. Fortunately, I had a copy of Ubuntu Hacks sitting in my backpack, so I brought it in with me.
