Oh, and Marc from Biblibre informed me I forgot to tell people how they can get my public key. You can get it from biglumber.com
Or simply by running
gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-key 557F7779
I have removed the packages as people were trying to use them for purposes other than just testing.
Well after a bunch of drama with flights, which meant sitting in airports for more than 15 hours (for a 3 hour flight), I made it back home. The installation and training went well, and the weather was fantastic. Met tons of lovely people too, so apart from airline drama’s it was a most successful trip.
I’m off to Fiji on Sunday, to do a Koha install and training. It’s gonna be hot and very busy, but hopefully I get a moment or two to relax as well. It will be a Koha3 no zebra installation on Mandriva, so it should all go smoothly.
ICIKM 08 Is on in Kathmandu Nepal in March of next year. It sounds like a really good conference. I’m doing a pre conference workshop on Koha if anyone is interested.
Well in 6 hours I will be. Tomorrow morning Laurel and Kahurangi fly out towards Pittsburgh. It’s going to be a long series of flights, thats the trouble with booking a flight using airpoints, they route you the most retarded routes. It’s even more retarded coming back, but they should have a lot fun while they are there and that’s the main thing.
So it will be just the pets and I for 3 week which the cat will be happy about as now Kahurangi is crawling his main obsession is trying to grab her. I’d imagine a few nights on the couch watching the rugby will be had, as well as more takeaways than is healthy being consumed.
I’m finally back in Wellington, now I’m going to get some sleep. I’ve put up some photos at
Air NZ are crazy, they make me take a 7am flight .. so I can arrive at LAX at 10am (west coast time). For a flight that doesn’t leave until 9.30pm …. what the hell???
So I’m sitting here for 10 more hours, joy.
Here is my mission for today
So far, Ive found good coffee, in this great little Italian cafe called Hausbrandt, on Walnut Street. I also found a CVS Pharmacy and got some stuff for Manaia.
On to the rest of the list.
Just a quick post, to let people know I made it to my hotel all ok. I’m just going to go eat something, then ill try to touch base with people back in NZ.
I have a day to relax tomorrow, before I start winging my way back to NZ.
