OWOOT to close

Oceania Women of Open Tech - Mon, 2014-05-26 00:29

Unfortunately, the OWOOT list members have agreed that there is not enough interest amongst our members to continue OWOOT as an organisation. Over the next few days, this website will close.

The Haecksen miniconf will continue to run at linux.conf.au for as long as there is interest, we've requested a separate organisers be established for this.

Those interested in receiving news of open source technical events in Australia should join the Linux Australia announcement list. Those interested in in-person meetups of technical women can consider Girl Geek Sydney, Girl Geek Dinners Melbourne, Girl Geek Dinners Brisbane, Wellington Girl Geek Dinners, or Auckland Girl Geek Dinners; or look for a Girl Geek Coffees group.

OWOOT grew out of LinuxChix Sydney and Melbourne chapters founded by Julie Gibson and Alex Bayley respectively. After the founding of the LinuxChix (now Haecksen) miniconf at linux.conf.au 2007, AussieChix and New Zealand LinuxChix were founded, and both merged into OWOOT in 2011. Thank you to the many key volunteers for these groups over the years.

What will we count?

What Will We Use? (Maco and Bethlynn) - Wed, 2012-03-21 18:39

Hello Readers…

This blog has been about Microsoft and its market share.

Specifically, on June 2009 I bet my friend Nick that Microsoft would lack a majority market share come June 2011. We discussed the three products that HAD the majority market share as of the summer of 2009:

  1. Microsoft Internet Explorer for browsers
  2. Microsoft Office for office suites
  3. Microsoft Windows for operating systems

Due to personal reasons, we did not conclude this project properly.

It was too time intensive to research the true market share of Microsoft products. It is without question that Microsoft no longer holds the majority market share on browsers, now with about 30% of the market share. The office suite question is still under debate due to Google Apps. Also under consideration is if tablets replace the desktop.

In summary, the question all along should have been “What will we count?” as office suites and operating system platforms instead of “What will we use?”

Without question, Microsoft is struggling to stay relevant as revenues plummet. Indeed, upon 2011 year close Microsoft is a different company. It is sad. I do not want Microsoft to fold. Competition is good even for the Apple and Linux-based products I prefer using.

After-all, I am a MSFT stock-holder.

Ramadan Mubarak

Lilandra - Sat, 2011-08-13 05:10

Ramadan is here again. Actually we are about 13 days in…so almost half way done.

And you’re wondering what could I possibly doing that is new, right?
More pictures of dates and fried stuff?
An artistic shot of a glass of water?

Well I intend to host my very first Iftar.

I’m going to give people food to break fast.

Now my mom is not very happy about this.
She may not like the menu either.

But I had a plan…for how I could cook everything…bake bake bake…I really need a second oven…

However I was saved. I am outsourcing the meat and one side.

I am making one side and salad (well I informed my sister in law that she is making the salad).

I’m excited and petrified at the same time.

Wsh me luck!

Teri Solow - Sat, 2011-06-25 21:00

gothiccharmschool:

I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s gray and Wednesday too
Thursday I don’t care about you
It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Oh, Thursday doesn’t even start
It’s Friday I’m in love

I don’t care if Mondays black
Tuesday, Wednesday – heart attack
Thursday, never looking back
It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday, you can hold your head
Tuesday, Wednesday stay in bed
Or Thursday – watch the walls instead
It’s Friday, I’m in love

  • Wondering how many apps I have installed on my phone came bundled with wee web browsers. Guessing 50%. Seems massively wasteful. #
  • @micahjgates It's mostly wasteful in that it wastes my time making me re-login to various places every time I leave a comment or whatever in reply to micahjgates #
  • @darkuncle Instapaper, facebook, tumblr, and others all have their own tiny non-safari browsers. in reply to darkuncle #
  • @ahockley You din't think they already have access to everything you have in the cloud? in reply to ahockley #
  • Kid, to other kid who just walked past me: "Dude, you really shouldn't be ahead of us like that! You might get kidnapped!" #
  • Store! Y U no have creamer?! #
  • Looking down, you realize that most people consider tiny stars entirely disposable. #

  • @darkuncle @marco Maybe it's based on safari, I don't know. Since it doesn't use safari's cookies it makes no difference to me. in reply to darkuncle #
  • Watching some awful little songbirds attack a sickly crow :( #
  • A second crow came to the defense of the first. I hope they eat all the songbird's babies. #
  • Good samaritans are my kryptonite. If someone dropped something, LEAVE IT ALONE kthxbai. #
  • @darkuncle Who cares how it's implemented then? A separate cookie jar means it's less useful than if it just used safari. in reply to darkuncle #
