A quite serious flu hit me four days ago. While this prevented me from getting any serious work done (my doctor actually explicitly asked me to refrain even from mental work), it provided me with ample opportunity to watch through all the exciting video recordings of linux.conf.au 2008.
The various technical X.org driver side related talks were really good to hear, and I'm happy that there is so much innovation and development happening there now.
The most hilarious talk according to my scale of humor was Matthew Garrett's presentation on suspend to disk. I had to watch it twice, just because it's so entertaining. Rusty: Even you'll have a hard time competing against that level of entertainment :)
