This is the personal home page of me, Brian Huff. Some people just call me Bex.

Feel free to peruse the photo album, to see the wedding photos of Michelle and I. Our honeymoon in Tahiti was amazing!

You can also see the photos from our trip to Thailand, or our sailing adventure around the Virgin Islands. You can also take a look at some of the articles Ive thrown together about politics and technology. Beware, I'm considered somewhat opinionated...

Thursday Sessions

Todays talks were quite good. I heard some cool stuff about the state of Python 2.4, and how great a language it is for teaching.

The talk about Tsearch2 and POSGRESQL was interesting... although I dont think its quite ready for us to suggest to customers. The talk on PHP performance was a good high-level talk, and I picked up a few new Apache performance tricks.

I picked up a few things about whats currently available in the Python lightning talks, and about what's next at the state of the Python union talk. Its a big Python love-fest. Making something like CPAN for Python would be a good idea to help the community.

I also had the opportunity to meet Jeremy White, my boss's brother. He's one of the lead developers on the Wine project, which allows people to run Windows apps on Linux. Quite an important and incredibly difficult project indeed.
