It is now 1642.

Lately I have printed badges and invoices for both BSDCan and PGCon. More will be printed later, but this is the bulk of the printing.

I’ve been proofing more prints for the PGCon t-shirt. Processed more registrations and payments. Ran to Walmart to purchase some paper for the printer. I struggled with printing badges because of paper jams. Eventually I used the side-feed instead of the paper tray. Things went much easier then.

I managed to fix a code problem with the extraction of names, titles, and organization for the badges. It was sorting by name, instead of last name, first name.

I contacted the U of O to confirm a room for the PostgreSQL Developer Summit (this is by invitation only, so if this is the first you’ve heard about it, sorry, you’ve not been invited). I also firmed up the catering numbers for BSDCan, now that we have a better idea of how many people will be there.

In about an hour, I’ll be meeting with the OCUUG group for their monthly beer and pizza. Dru will be there, amongst other people. We’ll split the badges from their sheets, sort them, and place them into the badge holders.

I also corresponded with a sponsor letting them know that an address they proposed for a venue is not the street they think it is. It’s about 23 miles from where they think it is. Thank goodness I Google map’d this name!

Registrations continue to come in for both BSDCan and PGCon. BSDCan is over 200. And PGCon over 145, with more registrations sure to come.

Tonight is the semi-finals. Dallas is at Detroit. Game starts at 7:30 PM. I’ll probably miss the first period and a half. I did have some plans for what I’d do while watching the game, but I cannot recall what they were now.
