So this is something I always forget how to do, so I am going to post it here so I don’t lose it and perhaps it will be off use to others.

So today marked the day I completed my move out of Huddersfield; I am now a resident of Manchester.

Susanna, the cats and I are all now across in Manchester though I expect to be commuting to Huddersfield University as I continue lecturing there. (More about my work this year later this month.)

A quick reminisce about the past and the cool things that have happened in Huddersfield, the establishment of the Inclusive Improv, Week(end) of Speakers, Creative Pact, The Huddersfield Experimental Laptop Orchestra, HELOpg, the starting of The Audio Podcast, HWOP, the formation of the On Time Production House, the 2011 ICMC UnConf, hosting Sonic Arts Meeting Groups and the Laptop Christmas Party – many of these will continue.

The Manchester move is really exciting prompted by various work opportunities and a desire for a change of pace and scene. I will however miss the various friends and the church I have attended in Huddersfield.

I have been talking about the move on my daily podcast as part of creativepact.

The move has also trigger a reconsideration of priorities as I feel a return to commercial work with a strong ethical focus, consequently I all ready have a number of secret projects I can not share fully. But internet and housing are in the mix.

And https://hackmanchester.com/ looks really cool.

So this morning at OggCamp 2012 I decided to propose a talk, which after a brief time in limbo was excepted. Was nice to present in an informal setting so talked through my WIFI Broken thought exercise my notes as always will be online at http://show.scotthewitt.co.uk.

Later on enjoyed a presentation about the Raspberry Pi project, which persuade me to buy one, which I intend to deploy as either a VPN server or a media thin client.

Also got to see a ColourHug which I heard about a long time ago but never got to see, was interesting to hear the story of the ColourHugs development and some of the practicalities of open hardware development.

Finally enjoy the OggCamp raffle which ended in a very entertaining impromptu auction when the grand prize was declined be the winner.

Then a quick dash to the train to get home early for tea with Susanna – Bye OggCamp2012 !!

After enjoying robotic boats first thing, Saturdays second session was vector maths by John Sharp followed by a look at the German Enigma machine (presented by Nahuel Marisi) and the human user introduced vulnerabilities. Made me realise how little I know about the competitive, equivalent Allies encryption technologies.

Finally enjoyed the live show contest between the Linux Outlaws and UK Ubuntu Podcast.

Now for tea and then the party.
