The meeting went on yesterday evening and this is just a quick note to recap on it.
On a partially related note, I’m not actually sure if I can say I belong to Lisbon.pm. I mean can you belong to more than one Perlmongers group? Being a founding member of Cascais.pm (and 50% of it’s membership) can I say I also belong to Lisbon.pm? Oh well, such are life’s little dilemmas… :-)

I just finished up making the slides for my presentation later this evening on the Flickr-Tools distribution for the Lisbon.pm first tech meeting.
I am alloted 45 minutes and having almost no experience in producing talks I decided to keep it simple, do a small presentation and fill up the time with explanations and maybe a Q&A…
So I just looked at the final result and I have 40 slides. 40!
Brevity? Hah! :-)
I will of course make them available soon.
The site is wired up, the data is hopefully being collected and in a few days there should be something interesting to look at.
A shame they don’t have a way to serve up the access logs to fill in the back history though.
Ah… outsourcing goodness!
That’s it, from now on trackbacks are turned off on this weblog.
If I ever decide that this feature is particularly important for a specific post I’ll enable it for that post only but as a default it is now off.
I just haven’t the time or the patience to deal with trackback spam right now. I got fed up.
Even though I haven’t posted anything in quite a while I’ve been producing video at a steady stream especially during and right after the recent vacation week in NY.
Until this weekend I’d only ever finished video projects in iMovie. I had tried using Final Cut for a few but when push came to shove I just wanted it done and fell back on iMovie “just this one more time” in order to get it done in a reasonable amount of time with everything I wanted in it.
What kept me from going FC all the way was not knowing how to do what I already know how to in iMovie and the steep learning curve associated with FC. I have bought a beginner’s book on FC, but never decided to go ahead and take the plunge.
So this weekend I decided to just go nuts and try it out and I must say I’m quite pleased. My goal at this point is not to do any fancy stuff with it, I’m simply aiming at using it just as I do iMovie, because limited as the later is, I know how to get almost everything out of it and when I get to that point in FC, then I can evolve at my leisure. And of course, if you want to learn how to use something just stop stalling and use it! So that’s what I did and I’m quite pleased with the results so far. I see a future not that far off where I’ll revert to using iMovie while in road warrior mode (FC on a G3 900MHz iBook is not very appealing to me) and Final Cut as my main editing platform at home.
So other than that I tried to get my latest photos into some kind of order but being sick didn’t help at all so not much got done on that front.
Also, on the whole personal site ball of wax, I’ve been looking with longing eyes at bloxsom for quite some time and this weekend I got another run at it. Some day, some day…
Oh and my ADSL wireless modem/router decided to go nuts and require a hard reset to start working again, so a part of my time was spent happily (not!) restoring it’s configuration from memory (and through a great deal of trial and error, of course). What do you mean configuration backups? Well yeah, now I have them… :-)
