Must go back to Santo Domingo, they now have a working Metro, wow. I need to windsurf again as well, been a while.

Scott did a good talk, you got a link to the video on uStream. Need to fix that URL. I also feel that the LiLAX website kind of sucks, the Perl scripts on it are just so '90's, too time consuming for this browser enabled Ajax world.

Linus@LiLAX Jim talks about the
where Jim, Linus' boss is giving out his email address to the
world. For those of us who have been on this list know that in the
days of Ismet he used to send a yearly email to Linus inviting him to
talk at our group.

I have lapsed a few years, didn't know where to send the email,
however it seems that although Linus lives in Portland Oregon, he
might land at LAX someday in the future and it would be really neat if
we could ask that at such time he give a talk. Mind you he is very
reclusive and unlikely to talk to a grass roots group that he never
heard of, but has been around promoting Linux for 11 years.

Anyhow if anyone is listening, would be great if at some time we could
find out that Linus is coming to LAX and we can find a room to meet in
whatever day that is, even outside our normal 2nd Saturday 10am meeting.

Anyhow if you can travel to Portland,
Sept. 21-23, Portland OR will feature Linus, so if any of you goes,
invite Linus.

I just realized that I have been spending time booking speakers at LiLAX and UUASC, so here are the links to some uStreams for Fedora and MPEG7 talks.

42" of blue screen of death on the media center PC, definitely taking it back now. Further investigation blames it on the ATI driver, there is an update, but I am not going to play with it anymore, instead did the factory reinstall to return it.

It occurred to me that someone could write a worm that down converts the movies on DVDs and leaves them on a bit torrent, unwillingly turning millions of PCs into pirate bays, right off the DVDs they are renting and watching, really evil.

AAPL is on my rader this morning. I sold a put against my wanting to buy it, figuring that 165 wouldn't be a bad level to get in on, rather then doing a limit, I sold a put, if it goes unfilled, so be it, I made $540 on the put, if I get called on it, oh well, now I own the stock that was called away from me at 165. But what will the stock do? Seems with the tablet rummers it can't go down right now, but what if the general market crashes? Will AAPL hold up? Probably not.
