OOOCON2007 Presentations

If any presenters do not currently have their presentation available on the programme pages, then please send your presentation to ooocon2007@openoffice.org. We would like to have both an OpenDocument Impress presentation and a PDF generated from it.

If you would like to update your presentation, please send it to the above address, also stating that you would like to update the presentation.
Due to a limitation in the OpenOffice.org infrastructure, we can only receive e-mails less than 2MB in size. If your presentation is larger than this, please send a short mail, and we will help you get it online using a different method.

Who said Barcelona was going to be cold?

In fact it is rather roasting compared to Edinburgh.

The direct flight with ClickAir was pretty smooth, except for a short time when coming in to land at Barcelona, due to going through a cloud.
Seems that the rumours were true about the iPhone coming to the UK, as reported by Macworld UK. However at £35 per month, I’ll give it a miss until I have some decent income. My current Pay As You Go Sony Ericsson still has plenty of life left in it. It currently takes me about 4 to 8 months to go through £35.
One thing that I found a pain, was the fact that Google suddenly decides to change the language to Spanish (or maybe even Catalan). I found a way around it! All I did was add ?hl=en_GB to the end of the Google URL. UK English not your language, just change en_GB to your own language code.
It has been great to see many of the contributors again from last year. Barcelona seems to be a city to easily get lost in. They too seem to have the tickets that allow you transfer for a period of time after the ticket is first validated. Why isn’t that possible in Scotland?

OOOCON2007: Incoming Flight Just Arrived

The incoming flight for my flight was delayed by about 20 minutes. The passengers are now getting off, so I should be getting on my flight soon. Seem I’ll be walking straight on. 

South of Edinburgh seems to be clear sky, whereas north is rather dark cloud. No fog here unlike Pavel.
Barcelona seems like it will be roasting compared to Edinburgh last night, which was down to 1°C.
Seems my mobile is cheaper than the wifi hotspots here.
Hopefully the iPhone will be able to be used as a Bluetooth modem when it is rumoured to come to the UK later today.
