The time has come for me to provide another LCA update, especially for those people who have been searching for combinations fo my name and the conference name.
I got three emails from Nick Phillips which all said
We’re sorry, but your talk, …, was not one of those accepted for presentation at LCA2006
It isn’t all bad news though
We’ve been very impressed by the standard of talks submitted overall, and
have had a really tough job trying to decide which talks to accept — it
looks like it’s shaping up to be a great conference!
For more information on the programme as it takes shape, have a look at
http://lca2006.linux.org.au/speakers.php  — to register (registration is
now open), see http://lca2006.linux.org.au/register/index.php 
We look forward to seeing you in Dunedin!
They can look forward to it all they like, but the bottom line is that I can’t make it. It probably would be nice, but I’m sure plenty of other people will fill my seat.
