Penguicon 2008 gallery and video

Filed under: Geek — apotheon @ 01:58

I went to Penguicon 6.0 last month. TechRepublic has a gallery of Penguicon photos from my trip, and my SigO has video from a Tesla coil concert available for download.

Penguicon was a lot of fun. I’m considering giving presentations there next year.


  1. You might want to let her know that the .mov won’t play via quicktime (says its not a valid .mov, I have the latest QT afaik).

  2. I take that back, I can only download 192 bytes of the file, for some reason.

    Sorry for the double post, I just thought to look at the file size.

  3. That’s probably my fault — I’m the one that uploaded the videos for her. I’ll see if I can fix the problem.

    Okay, fixed. It was a dumb permissions problem. I had the file access mode set to 600, so I changed it to 644, and now everything works.

    Of course, the AVI file was 644 the whole time, so you should have been able to grab that one and watch it without any problem (and it’s a smaller file).

  4. When’s Lisa going to start a blog?

  5. Probably as soon as she decides she has something to say. She’s already managing one for her father — he does all the posting, she does all the scut work (sorting through posts in moderation, et cetera). I’ve asked her about whether she was going to start up a weblog of her own, and she just said something like “I don’t know what I’d say.”

  6. Hehe, I thought the same thing, hence why I invariably settled upon using Amerlioations for my title. Just in case I didn’t have anything to say, I could get away with it by claiming a change of pace, hehe. ;)

    But seriously, I understand the reasoning. Not having anything to say is what keeps me from really posting more regularly. Which reminds me, today is a poem day. I’ll have to copy/pasta one from my google docs repository.
