I used LaTeX when I was in school to create reports, presentation (using beamer) and even sometimes class notes and assignments. Recently when I was looking for a presentation program in Linux I was crestfallen by the lack of polish in OpenOffice Impress. So I created my presentation for the Salt Lake Linux User Group in LaTeX and it looked professional (nothing surprising there).
My wife and I were in Burlington coat factory today and she finally found a pair of gloves that fits her stringent requirements. Her joy knew no bounds. I've never seen anyone so truly happy. She has been wearing them since we got out of the store and haven't taken them off. Its been more than 4 hours.
Today I presented in the Salt Lake Linux User Group meeting. The topic was "Hands on Intro - Git". It went well and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. I choked twice once while trying to explain how to git apply patches that you receive via email, but then recovered from it with some help from the audience. But the second time I choked while trying to explain how to pull from multiple remote repositories, I couldn't recover from that. I do that so rarely it never occurred to me. Oh well, the first time is the hardest.
