Attended the ICT 2011 conference in Ayia Napa, Cyprus. Unfortunately,
most of the talks were a bit outside my areas of expertise and featured
way too many mathematical symbols, so I didn't learn too much that is
relevant to us. Gave my own talk in the final session of the last day to
a very small audience, but seemed to go ok and even got a few questions
(unlike most other talks I attended).

Spent the remainder of the week in Cyprus on holiday.

Made a few tweaks to my ICT presentation based on feedback I got the previous Friday, mainly adding animations and more diagrams.

Finished up and submitted the libtrace paper to IMC and the inbound session paper to ATNAC.

Made a couple of changes to the libtrace build system to satisfy Debian packaging requirements.

Created a bug tracker for libprotoident and started adding documentation to the trac wiki.

Left for Cyprus on Friday.

As you may have noticed, we've upgraded the WAND website. Aside from the new theme, the biggest change is the addition of blogs for each WAND member. This provides a means for us to keep the wider world up to date with the discoveries we are making as they happen. The blogs have also been tied to our weekly reporting system, so there will be weekly updates from all research staff and students at the very least. Feel free to comment on the blogs if you have anything useful to add or wish to ask questions about the work we're doing.

At this stage, the site is still somewhat of a work in progress. Now that we've migrated successfully, we'll be auditing the content to remove out-of-date information and replace it with new content that reflects what we are doing now rather than what we did several years ago. Expect to see a few changes over the next few months...

Finished up the draft of the paper for ATNAC on inbound sessions.

Wrote a draft of my talk for ICT. Gave a practice run on Friday, which
received lots of helpful feedback. Will be working on incorporating that
in before I leave on Friday.

New website went up on Thursday, so I spent a fair bit of time poking at
it and finding problems for Brad to fix. Trac spam seems to be a fairly
big problem, even after adding captchas.
