Extremely busy

I’ve been extremely busy lately, although it’s not an excuse not to be posting. Hopefully as things settle I will start to post a little more often about what is happening, especially what I might be up to.

I just noticed 2 very interesting talks taking place at the meeting tomorrow for SLUG. I honestly wish I could go to listen to both talks, however don’t think I can spare the evening. Maybe someone can let me know if the meetings are recorded in some way and made available for viewing. Although I suspect maybe not.

Today is my 2nd day back at work after 2 weeks off. Took 2 weeks off to spend with the wife and our new baby boy Darwyn. Will be sure to post more pictures of Darwyn as soon as I sort out how I want to host them.

I’ve moved the blog location on the server, have decided to just keep it at the top level of our domain, since I don’t really have any other plans for it. Besides maybe eventually my wife might want to chime in and post sometimes (maybe only when we are away on holidays possibly).

Anthony Rumble: Rest In Peace

I’ve just learnt that Anthony Rumble passed away after an accident at home some days ago. My condolences to his family. I’d never met Anthony Rumble personally, however I had dealt with him a number of times in the early days of Everything Linux. Further more I had exchanged emails with him in the past via SLUG.

All I can say is this is a great loss to his family and the community. Anthony Rumble was a great guy and someone whom I certainly had respect for. Anthony will be missed by everyone who had dealt with him.

Richard Black: Rest In Peace

It’s with sorrow I announce the passing of an Uncle. We were informed yesterday evening that things had taken a turn for the worse. My wife and I were planning on travelling up to Bathurst to see my Uncle tomorrow morning, however it appears that wasn’t meant to be as he sadly passed away in the afternoon of today.

He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

Rest in peace.
