I’ve been enjoying Oregon State’s Linux Users Group. I’ve been to two meetings, the most recent one being “How Linux Loads Programs.” I came into the talk knowing practically nothing about the subject, but the presentation was so information-dense that I now feel capable of giving a (less masterful) explanation to any of my classmates. Thanks, Gabriel!

I’m surprised every time at how easy it is to pay attention during the presentations. I focus throughout the entire demonstration, which lasted a bit over an hour. I’m hoping that as I proceed through my degree I’ll be capable of enjoying my classes as deeply as I do attending nerd clubs, but until then, I’ll save my brainpower for 6pm on Thursdays.
