June Follow-Up

I guess I’ve been a little remiss in posting the follow-up note. The notes are available in the download section, but you have to log in to get them. Unfortunately I had to alter the login URL due to the number of spam registrations I have been getting. Every time I post something that hits twitter, the spam registrations come rolling in. At some point in the near future, I’ll add a login box back on the front page.

Post April Follow-up

The talk we had for April was on using asciinema to provide walk-throughs, training and demos that do not use something like a movie. As a short followup, you can view the embedded asciicast below to get a quick idea of what was we were talking about. This is nothing more than a quick and dirty demo to show that in addition to showing what you get, including things like a vi session, but you can also pause the player and cut and paste directly from the playing file.

Pi Day 2015

Today is Pi Day, assuming we follow month-day dating. Better yet, if we happen to use American style dating, March 3, 2015 becomes 3-14-15. That is as close to 3.1415 as we get for another hundred years. To celebrate all things geeky, Bruce, Andrea and I met up for a slice of pi(e). There should have been a few more, but the freezing rain may have put the others off. In order to be fair, we may have to celebrate tau day next.
