I've decided to retire this blog — I don't really see myself updating it any time soon, and haven't for over two years anyway. I intend to leave the content on-line for the forseeable future, but have converted it to a static site. As a result, dynamic things like search and comments aren't really going to work.

You can find me on Twitter or on Google+ if you like. Alternatively, I'm usually on IRC as LawnGnome on Freenode.

Thanks for reading!

Shalom First Floor Common Room

The main common room in Shalom. Note the various groups of people interacting in ways other than IRC. (Yes, really.)

Shalom Common Room (Near the TV)

More people in the common room.

Finally, I give you Steve without his super wireless powers:

When I’m not doing any of that and I have money, I go to excellent conferences and take part in ill-advised experiments with wireless networking. [...]
