The original closing date for paper submissions for Linux.conf.au 2012 was last Friday, and no doubt many people (including the editor of this very site) rushed to meet the deadline. However, there's now been an extension until August 7, so if you've got a brilliant vision for an open source-themed presentation and fancy a trip to Ballarat in January next year, you've got another week to get your submission in for judging. (Lifehacker will be attending whether I'm presenting or not.) [Linux.conf.au]

Then, I went home, considered calling 911, made my roommate babysit me instead, spilled water in my bed and spent the whole night dreaming I was on a boat. I was fine in the morning.
