It seems that my blogging contest idea is a failure. Could the interested people please meet me near the LCA registration desk at the start of the lunch breakh today for a post-mortem.
Any last-minute entries can be submitted by telling me the URL then.
I previously wrote about how I gave a talk about SE Linux at a conference spot when a talk about AppArmor was scheduled. It turned out that the Suse people had notified the LCA people some time in advance about the fact that John would not be attending the conference. The LCA people had removed [...]
Last year at LCA Crispin Cowan suggested to me that I make a joint offer of a combined tutorial on SE Linux and AppArmor as a way of publicly comparing the two technologies. I ended up not accepting the challenge, among other things I had a long-term project going in production in early December that [...]
My previous post about my LCA mini-conf talk received an interesting comment from Christopher Neugebauer.
He said that he had some trouble understanding me because I speak quickly, he wasn’t the first person to make that complaint (it’s the most common complaint I receive). If a talk goes well then I have a lot to [...]
Due to the lack of entries so far I am amending the rules. It is no longer required that an entry be on the blog of the person who submitted it. Being on any blog that is aggregated by the conference Planet will do.
This is known as a “guest post“. All it requires is [...]
Today I gave a talk about Debian security at the security mini-conf of LCA.

I think that this is a bad idea, people who attend the conference actually see things and don’t have a great need [...]
Yesterday when walking down Flinders St I noticed that a new store has opened up selling organic food. It’s Flinders Organics and the address is 260 Flinders St Melbourne VIC 3000 (just across the road from Flinders St Station, not far from the Swanston St intersection). I bought some fruit, some Green and Black organic [...]
I have decided to run a contest for security related blog posts that appear on Planet Linux Conf Au . That Planet is for people who are attending Linux Conf Au , and the prize (or prizes) will be given out at the conference.
The aim will be posts on the topic of computer security [...]
I have just stayed at the Victoria Hotel Melbourne. I booked it through www.WotIf.com and paid ~$110 per night instead of the list price of $186 per night.
The location is great (little Collins St near Swanston St). It’s a short walk from most things that are in the central city area and the nearest [...]
