London part 1: Linux World Expo

The business side was quite shiny, with demos of things like the accelerated desktop, and multiple terminals running on one PC. Freebies failed though; I got a load of leaflets, some pens, and not much else :( I'm told it was much better in previous years, but it seems that conventions are getting smaller and cheaper everywhere...

Meeting some people I knew, and watching them attempt to get unofficial freebies (like, entire racks of servers, or giant tuxes) was quite the hilarity~ I also saw jono bacon IRL \o/

Having wandered round and seen everything, we (50 odd random people from london LUGs and some others) went and DOS'ed a pub, and spent the evening talking of random things~
