Samuel’s Blog Year In Review: April 2005

April 2nd, 2006 at 07:00am

April 2005 was a funny month, as I just decided to utilise my blogger.com account for journaling my time at Linux.Conf.Au 2005. April 17 was the first day, and it was the first, of many, time that I would manage to become lost.

It also saw me keeping track of the progress of my seminar, including a practice which went for too long, a backup plan, printer problems, a need for coffee after speaking, and even the realisation that the audio on my recording of my speech was not in the least bit clear.

Del was the first ever person other than Samuel to leave a comment. There was also some controversy about this website being a news source.

After Linux.Conf.Au I decided that I enjoyed blogging so much that I kept going, and in the few days left in the month the topics included ACTION messing up the bus network, and 2CA broadcasting AFL, a topic which prompted John B1_B5’s first comment.

    I am extremely sorry that i havent been here from the start. I am, however, glad that I can go through the history of your blog Samuel and see the progression that it has made and all the exciting events you have covered over the year. The photo’s always help someone like me too who is slightly lysdexic and a little intellectually challenged.

    Keep up the good work mate 🙂

    Wonder what happened to Del ?

    Aunty_Jack, I might see about having a featured picture or two from each month.

    John, I think Del was Del from the SmoothWall Forums
