1. Battle Royale Day

Categories: None — Permalink

Peppy, Marcelle, Clair, Dang, JM, and Ranulf all came over for Battle Royale Day. Battle Royale is one of Marcelle's favorite movies, and we gave it our full MST3K treatment. Not that Battle Royale is a bad movie, mind you; it's just _so_ much fun to, well, poke fun at movies. And yes, we managed to get quite a few laughs out of something that bloody. ;)

Obligatory Battle Royale reflection: If I were ever in a Battle Royale situation, I'd probably stick with my friends; knowing the kind of people we are, we'd devise ways to keep all of us alive until the last day and brainstorm like mad looking for ways to game the system.

It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun hanging out with everyone. Great idea, Marcelle! Let's do something like that again soon. =)

2. Philippine Open Source Conference 2005: possible talk on "Linux in Your Pocket"?

Categories: None — Permalink

I couldn't help but respond to the Philippine Open Source Conference 2005 thread on PLUG when I saw the posts mentioning embedded Linux. It's... amazing, really, to see how people are interested in it. =) So I went on a trip down memory lane...

I can speak on developing for the iPAQ; my code is still in the bootloader, and I played around with programming small apps for it. (You can get a small CGI-capable web server or Python and have tons of fun hacking in class.) I haven't touched it in three years, though. It's been a while. If someone has made a more recent contribution, I'd gladly step aside. Besides, (cross my fingers!) I may be out of the country by the time of the conference. Still, if I'm in the country and no one else is up for it, then I can talk about having Linux in Your Pocket.

* * * flashback * * *

You know, that was the title of my _very_ first Linux-related talk at Linux10 Philippines in 2001... I presented to just _one_ person, as he was the only one in the room at the time my talk was supposed to start. He was an IT journalist, so it wasn't totally wasted. After the talk, I peeked out and found all these people who apparently had wanted to hear the talk, but were too shy to go in while I was presenting...

Incidentally, Linux on the iPAQ was _the_ thing that got me into development. My first public CVS access, my first instance of getting sent hardware (Jamey Hicks totally rocks)...

I'm going to stop now before I get all misty-eyed.

3. World domination

Same here. Personally I was amused at the sight of them: actually, I was more interested on the (pleasant sight of the) pretty girls inviting everyone to sign up to MSDN. I did sign up (which shows my soft spot ;p), and I was expecting the reply mail confirming it. It never came. :-/

Hmmm. Maybe I should go in my Japanese schoolgirl outfit (or my kimono, or some other costume ;) ) and convince people to try out Emacs.

World domination one geek at a time! Mwahahahahahaha!

The nice thing about Windows is - It does not just crash, it displays a
dialog box and lets you press 'OK' first.
