BugMeNot.com down

Tuesday, August 17th, 2004

I can no longer access the site to get my free passwords. Did a quick DNS check: ns1.bugmenot.com and ns2.bugmenot.com aren’t serving up the A record, so I’m not sure whether it’s a transient problem or if NYT and gang caught up with it…

Sigh… all good things must come to an end. But wait! The creators of BugMeNot had anticipated it and mentioned Project Hydra as its successor (See the google cache for http://www.bugmenot.com/assist.php.)

SLUG Code Con

Tuesday, August 10th, 2004

Note to self: Get your ^ss there.

“Code Con is intended to be a low cost conference, with a focus on developers doing presentations of working code, rather than on companies with products to sell.”

You can’t get much more low cost than this:

Frazer Beach is located in Munmorah State Conservation Area and is managed by NPWS. It features a beautiful sandy beach, rock shelves for fishing, fabulous waves for surfing, amazing rocks for photographing, numerous sea caves and walking tracks to explore, and even a blow hole at high tide. All this is just 2 hours north of Sydney CBD by car.

At $10 a night? You bet I’ll be there!
