Clarifying the Turkey cancellation

I just want to clarify that the reason I cannot make the Turkey trip not because of anything minor, but a health related issue that prevents me from traveling. I don’t particularly want to go into details, but rest assured I have done everything I can to try and get around this issue. I am really sorry for anyone who was planning to come and see me speak – it really is unavoidable.

    Get well soon.

  • Karl Lattimer

    Yeah man, get well soon, I suggest drinking whisky and lemon with a drop of honey. Cures all ills.

    You bloody well better make it to LRL and Guadec this year though 😉

  • Enver ALTIN

  • Simon Stanford

    Hope it’s not too serious and you get it sorted soon.

    You might want to update the “Latest Events” section when you have a moment as it still shows you as being in Turkey.

    I am at the event you were supposed to speak. I heard that you were afraid that you’d catch an infectious disease in Turkey and that was the “health issue”. Is this really true?!

  • jono

    Sakalli – I am not going to go into details as this is a personal health related issue, but no, I was afraid to catch an infectious disease – I spoke to my doctor about my current health condition and he expressly advised me not to travel.

    […] Ubuntu’dan Jono Bacon “saÄŸlık problemi” nedeniyle katılamayınca genel olarak biz bize bir seminer oldu. Pardus ekibinden bir çok kiÅŸiyi bir arada görmek ayrı bir güzellikti. Özellikle Faik‘i görüp sormak istediklerim vardı, sordum . Yeni açtığı Çekirdek Notları adlı sadece çekirdek notlarını yayınlayacağı günlüğünü ben de burdan duyurmuÅŸ olayım.   […]

    Hi, I am a fan of “Pinocchio” This year I made a trip to Tuscany and for the first time I was in Collodi and the Park of Pinocchio. I found a B & B close to real economic Park. I suggest it is nice and economical:
