My MySQL talk at GNHLUG

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Last night I gave my much delayed talk about MySQL at the Greater New Hampshire Linux Users Group.

BTW, next time you are in downtown Nashua, stop by Martha’s Exchange and have a Cherry beer with the Jambalaya — spicy but delicious!

Rudy Giuliani

I’m going to start hitting the Republican events — they are much more exciting.

At this evening’s Rudy event at the Nashua Elks’ club there was a Pro-Life protester who started yelling at him — “A vote for Rudy is a vote for Dead Babies” and “You have blood on your hands”. The crowd was Pro-Choice and kind of murmured over the protester. Spencer and I ran into the dude (see the complete photoset for a picture of him) and asked who *he* was supporting — Huckabee.

At the car there was a strange Pro-Life flyer from a mythical Smith 2008 candidate who has a “Negro Problem”. It is copyrighted by Randall Terry. I’ll scan it in later.

This afternoon at the Nashua Public Library, Robert F. Kennedy Jr , Kerry Kennedy and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend were discussing why they are Hillary Clinton. At first it looked like it was going to be two other people and myself, but then twenty or so GMU students stopped in.

There was a Hillary Clinton event at the Nashua airport this morning. She hasn’t changed her speech very much and took a bunch of questions from the crowd.

Two reporters interviewed me mostly interested in knowing what I thought of the 3rd place finish in Iowa and if she should change her message.

All the photos are here:

HP leaving NH

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

Yup, the office building known as ZKO and where I’ve spent the last 20 years working for DEC/Compaq/HP is no longer going to be where I park my butt during the day. I’ll be heading down to Marlboro, MA a few days a week starting sometime in 2008.

Here is what the Nashua Telegraph has to say in their newsblog section: HP to close Nashua site. The news traveled fast — their entry is dated 5:24pm today, just hours after the official announcement to employees.

Update: Wednesday full coverage in the Nashua Telegraph: HP to close Nashua site

I wonder when the new owners will take down the VMS-inspired Non-Paged Pool sign.
