Addison Oktoberfest 2001

No work today. Half the day was spent at the Addison Oktoberfest. We wandered around for while, taking in the sites and sounds and tasting the food. Afterwards we walked to a nearby Japanese restaurant for dinner. And, as anyone who visits the area should do, we stood in the center of the Blueprints at Addison sculpture and admired its blueness.

I also spent some time today messing with the connection between my MIDI keyboard and my Linux box. ALSA is working fine again. I wonder if there are still any plans to incorporate ALSA into the next kernel?

Brave Combo at Oktoberfest

Even though it’s only September, Addison hosted the 13th annual Addison Oktoberfest this week. I guess Addison Septemberfest just wouldn’t sound as interesting. The food was lousy but we got to hear Brave Combo playing a lot of cool stuff. Fortunately the Texas State Fair is coming up soon and has much better food.

By the way, congratulations to Rusty and the rest of the Kuro5hin team – I’m glad to see Kuro5hin back up finally!
