[05:28] caryb: you going to be able to make it down to the Kedron park for the release party? === bradm_ is now known as bradm [05:53] head_victim: When's the party again? [05:53] * blahdeblah hasn't had time to scratch himself lately [05:53] http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-au/1618/detail/ [05:53] Sunday 6th May. [05:54] There will be $10 lunch meals :) [05:54] thx [05:55] caryb: I'm based up at Caloundra now, so maybe we could carpool for some of the way... [05:55] I've posted it to the HUMBUG as well. One of them has requested to post it elsewhere as well so there may be a few new faces. [05:55] head_victim: Got any team business cards still? I'd like to give out a few at QUT when i'm there for classes. [05:56] blahdeblah: indeed I do [05:56] And I think I'll be a QUT student myself soon. I'm basically all but signed up to an MBA at gardens point [05:56] You're a stronger man than i. [05:57] I'm doing Grad Cert IT, probably leading to Masters eventually. [05:57] Looking at HR majors and a minor in corporate governance. [05:57] Eeek! You'll be an untouchable! :-P [05:57] Haha means I'll be very busy :/ [05:58] I looked into IT but just counldn't find an easy ay in from where I am. [05:58] So I've decided to just go hardcore on the corporate management and get up as high as I can there. [05:59] Don't you have a bachelor's in something? [05:59] Behavioural Science (Psychology) [05:59] Basically that's a long way of saying "people skills" [06:00] QUT Grad Cert/Masters in IT doesn't require IT as your undergrad discipline. [06:00] Yeah but I don't really know enough about IT to get too far into it :/ I'm tempted to try and add in some Project Management stuffs to see if I can get that way. [06:01] bah - you'd do fine! [06:02] I'm looking at advancing my wage more than anything. It's only a bonus if I like it. [06:03] If you say so. Personally, i think there's no point in the former if you can't have the latter. [06:03] * blahdeblah has to go - have a good one folks [06:03] Yeah but I'm actually a little excited looking at some of the HR and leadership topics [06:03] Cheerio mate :) [09:03] sydney release party tomorrow [09:05] sagaci: looks like a few going :) [09:05] yep [09:05] jellyware is in -chat and he's heading in apparently [09:05] head_victim: Thou protesteth too much - you would do fine in IT. [09:07] blahdeblah: yeah, but the time to learn enough to get to a position I can support the mortgage is the downer. [09:07] I'm not the sort of person who likes working contracts. [09:07] Fair enough [09:07] I understand [09:07] I was hoping I can squeeze in some project management into the electives and have a look at that. [09:08] Come in a bit higher up in the chain then. [09:08] I'm in the position where i will probably have to go back to working for the man pretty soon just to support the family [09:08] But when I started looking at courses, I really found the leadership and hr stuff interesting as well. [09:08] Yeah I like working for the man, it means steady income. It's less freedom but I am the sort of person that suits. [09:13] Well I hope you can make it down for the release party, I have to head off for a bit but it would be nice to catch up [09:22] Take it easy, head_victim === fenris is now known as Guest89753 === Guest89753 is now known as ejat
