Just a random thought. Let's say you have a computer. Then let's say that said computer has terminal beep and or audio bell enabled. *Then* let's say you're in a tutuorial where people are conentrating on the presenter and his presentation.

It *might* just be me, but I might expend the tremendous energy necessary to mute my computer, or turn off the beep.

Not saying that anybody did this, but ya'know... just a random thought. =)

FYI, If you are looking for something more substantial than coffee and donuts the Double Tree next door has a sit down restaurant that serves breakfast.

Two new pages on the PyCon site: * The attendee notes, at http://us.pycon.org/2008/about/notes/, are full of useful info, a FAQ of sorts. You can help improve that page; there's a link to a wiki page for suggesting additions or changes. * Help for Speakers, at http://us.pycon.org/2008/conference/helpforspeakers/, has suggestions on coping with stage fright and designing your slides. I'm sure everyone's presentations are all finished by now, of co... [read more]

Andrew M. Kuchling posted The Weather During PyCon

We're getting close enough to PyCon to look at the weather forecast. You should certainly bring at least a light jacket and gloves; bring a heavier jacket if you're not used to cold temperatures. According to Frommer's Portable Chicago, the average temperatures in Chicago in March are a high of 44 degF / 7 degC and a low of 28 deg / -1 degC. The temperatures predicted for the week match the averages: high temperatures of about 40-50 degF / 5-10 d... [read more]

Ian: looking forward to seeing you again and sharing a pint or two. Also we never got round to that interview - will there be time after the main con?

Ian Bicking left a note for Ben Bangert

My personal favorite pizza is Lou Malnati's, but another good place would be Gulliver's: http://tinyurl.com/35yncb -- it's a bit closer I think (if you have a car), has an amusing ambiance, and can take larger groups more easily.

Ben Bangert left a note for Ian Bicking

Hopefully you know of a good place for some classic Chicago style pizza.... and of course an appropriate pub for St Patty's day ;)

This is the first time I've seen a picture of you. Cognitive dissonance! Though I'm not sure if I had a picture of you in my head otherwise...

Andrew M. Kuchling posted Schedule planner now available

Thanks to Doug Napoleone's work, the PyCon schedule planner is back this year, at http://us.pycon.org/2008/conference/schedule/. You can use it to lay out your conference ahead of time: click on events and talks you'd like to attend, and then export your selected events in iCal format or print a customized schedule. Your choices are saved on the pycon.org server (hit the 'resync' button to ensure they're saved before you log out), and the organiz... [read more]
