Have arrived in Liverpool fine, baulked at the cost of sandwich at Manchester Station so instead enjoyed KFC after checking into the hotel. Am staying in the Adelphi hotel in the middle of Liverpool which is a bit grim – full of stag dos, grannies and for two nights only geeks. It reminds me of the Pennsylvania hotel I stayed in, while visiting New York for ICMC 2010.
While I was in London last week I bought some new, old old glass. A Nikkor 24mm 2.8 AFD lens. It is actually the second time I have owned this glass having previously traded it for a Nikkor 17-55 2.8 AFS so why the step back.
I have had a problem with using i3 as a window manager getting screen locking and suspend to work but this is how I got it fixed.
This comming weekend I am attending Ogg Camp 2012 in Liverpool, I am voluntering as part of the crew so I suspect it will be a busy weekend. The unconference, hosted by Linux Outlaws and the UK Ubuntu podcast is all about open culture and hardware hacking so should be really intrested. I hope to blog my way through the event here, but of course I might be to busy so shall see.
So its August and that means its almost September which means its CreativePact time.
