Unix geeks ahoy!

Tod gestures as he describes the Unix family tree with a very long diagram during a talk on FreeBSD for the Tokyo Linux Users' Group earlier today.

We followed up the technical talk with a nomikai where we discussed a wide range of non-tech topics, including kanji dissection and debate over whether Kansai or Tokyo style foods are better. Kitano-san made me call his pregnant wife to tell her he would be just a little bit late...

And then we all went off for a nijikai and enjoyed a rousing session of karaoke. Yuki is singing "Sk8tr Boi" while Baba tries to drown her out with "Linux Boi."

Tod, UltraBob and I managed a sanjikai at Corazon, our local pool hall. We discovered, to our dismay, that Corazon will close on the 23rd as their building is being torn down. More luxury apartments in the works, I suppose.

That all looks like fun. Say hi to Tod. Was that extraordinarily long flowchart all his own work, modelled on ESRs work, or from somewhere else? Whichever way I'm sure all present at the meeting are now more clued up about Unix history than it appears anyone at the the company who should not be mentioned but merely SCOrned.

Oops, I forgot to add the link to the family tree--it's there now. :-)

There are also some photos of the presentation and fun afterwards on the TLUG website at http://www.tlug.jp/meetings/200309/index.php

Sitting for karaoke? When I come visit, can you and Tod and I do a rendition of Rock Lobster? No sitting for that!

You both look fabulous, btw.
