This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- Got up late, attacked my broken laptop PSU. No screws to open it
totally sealed casing; strange. 15mins, a hacksaw, a chisel and an awl later
it sumbitted, thick plastic shell. Just to make sure it still wasn't working
I held it in my hand and switched on... Seemingly the reason for the tough
shell is that the innards are all live ( 240V RMS ). After recovering from
the shock I turned off and while disconnecting got bitten by the large
capacitor that lurks in there; doh. And the fault is irreperable worse luck.
- Boathouse, short run and a couple of hours on the river, my
technique was much worse than it was before Christmas, annoying. Also having
been stroke for ages its rather tough keeping time with other people.
- Engineers dinner went well; the new fellow got really drunk and
incoherent, that's supposed to be amusing I think.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
