“Hey, where is Lucas? Why hasn’t he posted lately?”
I’ve done nothing worth posting about. Most of this month I spent removing a per-millennial switch from the core of the network, which was painstaking and annoying but not noteworthy. I then spent nine days at a writing workshop, which was fascinating, educational, and utterly exhausting. I could argue that the workshop was worth blogging about, but I was too busy writing to waste time writing. If you’re interested in writing, though, and you have a chance to do any of Dean or Kris’ workshops, go.
Next weekend, I’ll be at Penguicon, appearing on various panels. You can see me at the following one-hour events.
5PM: BSD Operating Systems, a Tour – What it says on the label
11AM: Sudo – You’re Doing It Wrong – Why your popular sudo configuration is incorrect, and how to do it safely
1PM: Copyright versus Free Information – What happens when the concept of ‘information can’t be contained’ clashes with content creators who want monetary recompense for their hard work? Speakers include:Michael W. Lucas, Shetan Noir, Eva Galperin, Cory Doctorow
6PM: SSH Key Authentication Tutorial – If you’re not doing SSH key authentication, show up here.
8PM: Self-Publishing 101 – Do you? Should you? Various tools and techniques and recommendations.
2PM: DNSSEC in 50 minutes – How DNSSEC works, and why you should care
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a whole great big heap of slides to do…
