I just got back from Velocity 2010 and I'm quite pleased. Most of the sessions were really informative. I took tons of notes, so I'm hoping to use my mental momentum to get back in the habit of posting.
I've also dusted off my little netbook, which is by far the easiest way to do a blog post. Unfortunately, the POS Atheros 5k wifi card is not well supported on the linux side. It's actually not well supported on the XP side either, but at least you can disable any power-saving functions on that side and it mostly works. I refuse to replace the card, on principle.
Naturally, I would like to figure out how this means I need to buy a whole new netbook. ;)
