Thanks for pointing that our, Lynne. I've corrected the date.
Thanks for your tribute, Peter. I haven't been able to watch that video again until now, and it actually made me feel better. One little correction, though: according to my journal, it was on October 30, 2009 that you came out and did that interview.
Even though this is an older post, looks like someone has a recent question.
I'll share my thought on one way to do that, Irfan Ahmed;
This will unpublish the given node (auction item) and therefore end bidding in a site configured properly.
Great interview .. where can i find the other parts of it?

It looks so much better back then....
Well said Peter - It really is pretty cool that the PEI Crafts Council's server which you set up was the Island's 1st webserver. It was a merging of handcrafted and high-tech and as I recall the worldwide listings of suppliers for craftspeople you developed was the only directory of its kind at that time.
It really is amazing how basic things were in the beginning of the Internet on PEI - and how far things have come since. I recall touring Computer Services at UPEI when PEINet was first located there - and looking at a small box the size of a VCR and being told "that is PEINet." It was a box and a wire in and a wire out, but it has become our connection to the world.
What a cool idea. I've added your temporary site to my Safari Bookmarks bar.
For those of you who want to following along, http://hack.ruk.ca/ is the temporary space for the Hacker in Residence project while domains get assigned at UPEI.
This is, what I experienced with Rogers and since I immigrated to Canada four years ago.
I came from Germany and the wireless market there seems to be a paradise compared to the Canadian circumstances. Rogers is an octopus, ripping-off every customer for an extremely lousy service and a backward headed technique!
The main writer here, who opened the thread, matched exactly my experiences with Rogers.
I could add so much more bad about my helpless struggle against this governmentally protected gangster organistation. But that would just brake the mold!
MTS in Manitoba, by the way isn't even iota better than Rogers!
I hate them all!
Regrettably Canada ist full of these bad monopolists who use to terrorize the customers; no matter what trade!
No surprise that Canada has no problems with the economy, while it's laughing of Europe and the US. Canada is the third world in respect of customers. Do anyone here know about (real) customer protection??? I bet 1:1000 - no one! Take a look over the fence towards Europe. Companies like Rogers wouldn't have any chance of a finger snip by showing this scornfully attitude to any customer. The laws are FOR the customers in Europe. You would feel much better, if it would be as half kindly in Canada, as it is in Europe.
YIKES ROGERS and companions from policy!
Kudos, Accolades, & Major Wows
One can grab a fast food meal elsewhere. Being at a key location for visiting Cruise ships and Tourists alike, along with locals who appreciate fine food, Terre Rouge is a VERY welcome addition to Ch'Town. I cannot heap enough praise for the quality of cuisine I had tonight. Truly a magnificent meal with flavours that exploded and genuinely complemented at each bite. High end ....yes. High quality....most certainly. Higher price .... Expected and appropriately set. Staff .... Delightful.
Very happy to see this .... We will be back.
My dot ca costs 40 bucks a year.
Happy 25th Birthday .CA
This is awesome! Keep on hacking!
Wow... that's pretty cool!
I remember PEINet... I didn't know UPEI were the first to register a .ca!
And 25 years ago. Quite an anniversary. Truly ancient history in the life span of the net.
This is wonderful the ideal fit. Thinking that every organization needs a Hacker
I put up a raspbian repository if you are using that distro. It might be faster than the default. Use: archive.route2.pe.ca/raspbian/ in /etc/apt.sources (/ubuntu/ is on there too). Updated four times a day!
This is awesome, Peter, UPEI once again leads the way in innovation!
Wow, very cool news. I miss working with those folks, whenever I took extra time to ask the librarians and other staff about software they were having trouble with it always resulted in some small change I could make to improve people's experience.
Hope to read more soon.
It's great to have Peter collaborating with the team at UPEI as Hacker in Residence. Peter has worked with us before, but this will be a lot different, I suspect. We are lucky to have such a creative person (in digital and analog realms) on our campus!
BTW - there may be espresso at our firstCoffee House in the Pit, January 18th 6:30-9:30, so you may want to hack your way over.
You'll need a good mohawk for all of that 'hacking'
Love the idea of libraries engaging in brilliantly subversive learning! I'll be watching to see how you are going to engage to student body and the greater community by extension. I couldn't think of a better "Hacker in Residence" -- congratulations
Happy to read about the new incumbency ;) I'm sure you'll hack and create a lot of value at such an unexpected place! Plus you'll EB surrounded by type which I suspect it's also interesting hehe so congratulations, and a big hug and best wishes for 2013 ;)
Yeah. I know what you mean. These days I only show my kids movies made for grownups.
Its a very nice post
But have a question in mind , that how could we make expiry date and time with our bid ?
So that if the allowed time is expired , people can't place bid
