1041 - Frequent flyer miles are good for something

I just scheduled two trips, well in advance, and used frequent flyer miles to pay for them. Whee!

The first is the SHARE users' group conference, the third week of August in New York City. I'm going to go give two talks on Hercules, the open source emulator whose project I manage. This trip will be really cheap, since I'll be staying with bronxelf_ag001. Thank heavens for good friends. I might be able to return the favor one of these days...although not in that manner, since i'll be stunned if she ever actually decides to come to Fairmont.

The second is Linucon, the second weekend of October in Austin. Maybe I'll get to meet Wil Wheaton this time, since he wasn't able to make Penguicon.

current mood: [mood icon] pleased

I'd love to spend some time talking to him: he's one of a very few people who's received more hatred from the Internet without doing much to deserve it than I have. I also understand he's a pretty good guy.
