My NOVALUG presentation was a success.

10 April 2010

Well, it's done. My Tor presentation at the NOVALUG meeting this morning went off without a hitch. It was a little touch and go for a while because neither Lyssa nor I were firing on all eight cylinders due to low blood sugar but we met up with Hasufin and Mika at the halfway point and carpooled over. In the end made things easier (read: I didn't have to navigate). I may have overprepared a bit by having an extra laptop as well as multiple copies of my presentation on hand in case things went pear-shaped, but thankfully no heroic measures were required. I need to figure out how to make Impress show the same slide on my laptop's screen as it does on the projector, because I had to keep turning around to look at my bullet points, but that's actually pretty minor.

I'd like to thank Greg Pryzby for organizing the meeting as well as the Herndon Fortnightly Library for hosting us for a couple of hours this morning. I'd also like to thank everyone who came to the meeting and asked excellent questions this morning. Special thanks to Hasufin and Mika who let me run through my presentation on their big screen TV last night and helped me edit and polish it until the wee hours of the morning.

If you'd like to download a copy of my presentation here it is as an Impress presentation and as a PDF. When the video is put online by NOVALUG I'll post a link to it.
