Obligatory New Year's Post

It seems like The Thing To Do, create a new post on the first day of the year to reflect on the past year and make resolutions for the coming year.

The problem is, I suck at this sort of thing. My mind always goes blank when trying to come up with events of significance to me, and I loathe the idea of going public with resolutions because I have a dismal track record for keeping them. I'll do my best though.

Significant events of 2005:
  • My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, underwent a lumpectomy to remove the tumor, and has been undergoing chemotherapy since.
  • I became an official Debian developer.
  • I attended my first Debconf, (Debconf5), in Helsinki Finland.
  • I attended LinuxWorld in San Fransisco
  • Sarge was released.
  • I moved to a different department at work, and received a new title and job description, (unremarkable in light of the fact that I'm doing the same thing I've always done)
Resolutions for 2006:
  • For at least the last three years I have resolved to lose weight, and for the last three years I have failed. It's time to try something different so this year I resolve to reduce the effect of Earth's gravity on my body.
  • I resolve to be more interesting so that next year's obligatory New Year's post is easier to write.
