CrunchBang at LISA ’12

Along with my two trusty ThinkPads, I’m at the Large Installation System Administration 2012 conference in San Diego — known as LISA ’12, for those of you keeping score at home. At the Southern California Linux Expo SCALE 11X booth at LISA ’12, the ThinkPads were put to work, both running CrunchBang.

One — the T42 with Waldorf testing 20121015 — ran the slide show on a large monitor after a harrowing half-hour of operator error which yours truly miraculously fixed to get it to display right. Once the display and the laptop played nicely together, the slide show went flawlessly all day without a hitch.

The second — a T60 with Waldorf testing 20121015 — ran the registration on for those who wanted to sign up to attend SCALE 11X in Los Angeles in February.

Both machines with CrunchBang ran flawlessly all day, and we get to do it all again tomorrow. Watch this space.
