Apachecon days 1 of 2, and more

Posted on June 27, 2006, under general.

So, Apachecon days 1 and 2 have been great, of course. I’ve been run off my feet getting network up and running. We’ve been donated an STM-1 from the great people at BT Ireland, over which we have provisioned 100 Megabits of connectivity to the HEAnet network. The guys at BT did a great job getting the fibre provisioned in time, with a lot of work outside working-hours to get it done, but it took us a lot of work on the Apachecon side (including running our own fibre within the Burlington) to be able to use it properly.

The hackathon has been going really well, and it’s been great to catch up with a lot of people I havn’t seen in a while, though I havn’t done much hacking yet.

Vincent and I

In other news, Vincent Jackson was elected to Lord Mayor of Dublin, which is an amazingly big deal for Vincent, his wife Veronica, the rest of his family, everyone else who knows him, including me and my family. Noirin and I went along to the Mansion House last night to help celebreate, and she’s uploaded a flickr set of the event. Hopefully it will be a great year!
