LISA '08 Recap

Recently I just got back from LISA (Large Install System Administrators) Conference in San Diego.  Overall I really enjoy this conference.  My employer generally doesn’t spend very much on conferences, at least not for people in my position, so it’s nice that I get to go to this one.  There are very few Sysadmin specific conferences out there.  Velocity seems to have some potential despite it being very Web (2.0) centric.  I haven’t been to Velocity so I really can’t comment.

After an unexpected and sudden trip (sans the boy) to Cafe Capistrano I’ve now gotten on a Sangria kick. Capistrano does not have their liquor license, but does have their beer and wine license. So they make margaritas and sangria with wine only. The last time I made sangria it didn’t go so well, I loved it and proceeded to drink half of it, T hated it and wouldn’t touch it. I’ve been trying to find a by the glass recipe so that I can try different recipes without devoting an entire bottle of wine to each experiment.

It’s a daunting task because there are as many sangria recipes out there as there are bottles of red wine most of them call for adding hard liquor and soaking the fruit for several days prior to mixing. But they say wine is good for you so I guess I’m up to the challenge.
