Printers! Photos…and audio problems…

I spoke…and then needed coffee.

Well, my seminar went according to plan…well almost, I did run ahead of schedule and had to slow down a bit, but other than that it was fine. There were about 50-60 people in the room, so all in all I had a decent audience. I will have a video out shortly (note to LCA organisers if you are reading this: The video is from my video camera, I decided to do it that way as it gives me control over editing etc…I beleive that you have some video thing going…and that’s great, but for my purposes I like control)

One interesting thing that did come out of it. One person asked a question about how SmoothWall knows that an update is valid, at first I thought that this was a question about the md5 check during update installation…they then clarified and asked how SmoothWall knows that the MD5 checksum is valid, this is a good question. When you think about it, there is no way for it to be absolutely sure as it gets the update list by means of a http request. I will be passing their suggestion of ssl/certificates on to the dev team.

I have found the computer terminal room, which is now a compulsory for me as the person I was going to borrow a laptop from forgot to bring it…no Tux Racer during seminars I guess!

I was planning on having some self vanity and suggesting my seminar for one of the "best of" repeats on Saturday, but there is no way I could do that again this week, for one thing, I didn’t need my notes as much as I expected, and as such, a lot of it was ad-lib, I knew what I was going to say, but never ran to the script properly. Apart from that, it was physically exhausting, I’m glad I had my coffee with me!!
