OLS 2005 - day 2

After the rather quick trip from Guelph, we picked up Shawn:

And then we left for Ottawa. We made two stops, one for food (Wendy’s) and one for gas (not sure which). During the trip, I had my wifi card set up as an access point with the SSID of "toofastforyou". As far as I know, the only person who noticed and/or connected to it was Shawn.

In the car, we played with Shawns webcam, and tried to record the journey, but we failed. Other than that, we saw a garbage truck burn in Toronto:

Burn! Burn!

…and a military cargo plane near the middle of nowhere.

We arrived at the hotel at 18:15. After we checked in, and moved in (18:45) Seth (sarnold) came by (well, we called him on his cellphone and basically told him to came to the hotel). He brought along Stingray and Anyutka (I don’t remember their real names). We then collectively went to a restaurant and met up with Con Kolivas (yes, Con is blurry and the TV in the background is in perfect focus, I promise to take a good photo):

We ate, we drank water, we chated. Then most of us went to the pre-registration thing which was closed by the time we got there. So we decided to look at the pub which was supposed to expect lots of Linux geeks. They had a whole floor pretty much reserved for us, but David (cdlu) and Laura (cdlu’s wife, aka lan) and I decided that it didn’t look like much fun so we went back to the hotel.

At the hotel, chatting on IRC was the activity of choice:

  1. Sigh. Every year we get a picture of a TV. :)
