Over the past 8 or so months I have been quite busy. I decided to take a semester off uni to do some government work, following that I had enough money saved to take a trip to the USA (and an unexpected deviation from the plan). I was intending on re-enrolling for the second semester of university but found that it was impractical... So I'm currently job hunting!
I was in Perth for linux.conf.au 2014 and for a place that I've heard sucks, I'm mostly seeing the opposite.
Like Dirk Hohndel's talk, this post is not so much about technology as it is about the sea. I meant to write this post before I had even left Perth but I ended up getting sidetracked by LCA and general horseplay.
After Kate Chapman's enjoyable keynote I decided to blow that popsicle stand and snorkel at Cottesloe Reef (pdf) which is a FHPA (Fish Habitat Protection Area) just 30 minutes from the conference venue by bus.
