This morning at 8am, Dickson College held their annual year 12 breakfast (with no sign of the annual Canberra Times journalist). Rather than catching a bus to the event, I decided to walk (I took Nattie for her morning walk around 6am), I left home at about 7:15 and arrived at 7:55. When I got to the event, the canteen manager made an unexpected comment, she announced that she had heard me on the John Laws show the other day (I received a similar comment later in the day, and earlier in the week by email), this prompted a discussion between people who were in the vicinity at the time about Van Nguyen and the phone call.
The breakfast itself was quite good, with plenty of nice food, I personally had a slice of toast, some bacon, scambled egg, a croissant and a hash brown. This is quite a large breakfast for me, considering that I usually settle for a couple slices of toast or a bowl of cereal, but I did work up a bit of an appetite with the 30 minute dog walk and a 40 minute walk to the college. The breakfast also had a somewhat traditional speech from a former student, unfortunately this speech was neither motivational, uplifting or particularly interesting, but that’s just my view, it did appear that quite a few people genuinely enjoyed the speech, personally I was wishing he was a talkback caller and I could just cut him off, but alas I had to listen, fortunately the breakfast had coffee.
I received a large shipment of Ubuntu Linux 5.10 CDs for x86, Power PC and 64 Bit platforms yesterday and took to distributing them to people who would be able to find a good use for them, people who are genuinely interested in Linux and Open Source Software. During the day I met my former boss who admitted to breaking the network with no way of fixing it, that was amusing.
I also managed to get Stargate Atlantis series 1 & enough of series 2 to tide me over until Channel 7 decided to screen it again, thankfully this means I will not have to wait for Channel 7 programming to allow me to see if and how the team manage to save Atlantis from the Wraith.
Overall the day, and the breakfast, were very good, and I must say it is very nice of the Dickson College staff to hold this function every year.
