well. OpenBSD had a stand, so got some OpenBSD cd's and posters. Had a good
long chat with one of the covlanet technologies techies about RavenSSL and
I'm gonna give that a shot next week, but from what they showed me, it's
alot faster than using mod_ssl, I just have to decide wheather that extra
speed is worth the money. PC Bookstore also had a bookstore, which we tried
to avoid and not look at but it just called out, and I ended up spending 150
quid on books :-/
Sun had their internet pavillion as well, and they had NO SSH!! And it was a
pain just to get an xterm to telnet out and thier connection to ireland was
appalling, though it did improve alot on wednesday. So I would definitely
recommend a laptop and wavelan card for anyone going to other conferences.
They did also mention that this conference had more attendees than
Apachecon 2000 in florida earlier on this year, there was 1200 people in
total in london.
So that was my trip, and I would deffo recommend anyone going to any future
ones, they are expensive, but you do get what you pay for and they did fly
in the most experienced people to talk.
Anyways, I'm off to catch up on 5 days without a net connection, Laters,
