For all my friends at OLS

Be sure to keep copies of Aubrey’s Guide to Con Hygiene handy – no matter what the crowd, at least 1% will need a reminder about these things.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Step five really should read “Put back on CLEAN clothing…”. Otherwise some poor hapless geek is going to put back on his dirty clothes.

    This is why I don’t attend Cons you know…

    Trinoc-Con [1] is this weekend in Durham. I’m tempted to borrow a color printer and leave a stack on the registration table :). However, as Powers Boothe said in Deadwood, “But that would be wrong.” [1] URL from memory, think it’s correct.

    I wish I had that on a t-shirt for HOPE last week….. 90 degrees in NYC with lots of unshowered smoking geeks in black shirts == funk…

    It’s things like dirty unwashed fans that have kept me from going to cons as an adult. When you’re a little kid, you don’t notice the smelly people (or realize that they’re smelly).

    I CAN go by Kinko’s for you….

    Oh, I can too – I didn’t say I couldn’t, I said that I shouldn’t. Thanks for the offer, though.

    I had a scary close call in Yorktown where I almost had one as a roommate.
