I got rid of some and added others but at the same total number I was yesterday.  Other than the Open Everything Madison meeting at 2pm in the Web608 IRC channel, there isn’t anything on the calendar for tomorrow and I should knock a few things off the to-do list.  Now, I think it’s time for bed.

nVidia, Open Everything Madison and what’s up next

Now, remember, I’m typing one-handed with my broken arm.

now, 15 and 16 might not need to happen since GoogleVideoChat is not available on Linux yet.

So, I wanted to say more about OEM, but doesn’t look like I’ll have time tonight.

Shaping up to be a good one.

As usual, I’m running out of time for the day.  As I said in a comment to another post, I broke my arm on Friday.  This is going to slow me dowm in planning for Open Everything Madison.  However, some other problems I thought might happen for OEM are not going to be problems.  I’ll post more about that when I have some time.

Google Reader…more to come later

I currently sit on 333 items to read in Google Reader.  Those of you that follow me on Twitter (douglasawh) know I’ve been struggling with how to not get overwhelmed in reading.  Specifically, I want to keep it below 1000 so that I can actually see how much I have to read.  Slashdot, in particular fills up the queue rather quickly.  Ok, so I just changed this (thinking while I write, which I often do).  Now I’ll just get the Linux articles on slashdot.  I do the same thing with Digg.  Now, the problem is, what about when there are interesting articles in other areas?  Well, I guess I’ll just have to trust FS Daily, the Open Solaris feed, Google at the top of Gmail and Twitter to keep me informed.  I think I’ll be ok.  The problem really is that I do Windows at work and I really am ready to be done with Windows.  I’m fighting what I want to learn for myself and what I feel I should be learning for work.  I’m certain that some learning is better than no learning though.

Ok, I was going to write about Drupal Camp Chicago and Open Everything Madison, but it’s time to bounce…
