GCDS 2009

With my exams now finished (all 19 hours of them), it's time to look forward to GCDS 2009. In a fit of madness, I signed up to do a lightning talk on "libgdata and web integration", which will take place in the Synphonic Hall sometime between 15:30 and 16:30 on Saturday. If anyone wants a laugh at my expense, please turn up.

I was wondering if anyone attending GCDS was planning on going hiking in the mountains of Gran Canaria. To me, that would be more appealing than the arranged tourist outing, and some company would be welcome. I was thinking the Thursday would be most suitable, but I don't have any plans at this stage.

Buxton and GPS logging

Last weekend was my training weekend for this summer's World Challenge trip to Chile. My World Challenge team spent two days camping in Buxton, with one of the main exercises being a 17km hike on Saturday.

For the hike, I had my GPS logger turned on, and collected rather a nice log for the round trip. As I alluded to previously, however, I can't find a way to extract the data from the logger on Linux. Since mtkbabel explicitly can't yet support the M-241, I had to extract the logs on Windows. Still, they turned out well.
