Last night we made an ApacheCon US 2008 Jack-o-Lantern! It projects “ApacheCon 2008” on the wall behind it if there is enough light inside: a Mini-Maglite did the trick, with the lens taken off to make for a nice point source and a crisp image.
Meanwhile, I’ve been working on the slide deck for this week’s presentation at the conference. I think it’s shaping up pretty nicely, although I’m going to have to put a ton of content in the handout. There is simply too much to talk about. However, by putting some of the technical details in the paper handout, I can keep the slides themselves cleaner and improve the flow of the story.
