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
- Up shockingly early; showered, broke our fast which the
amazing variety of interesting food Christian had provided. Then we
set off for the conference centre. It had snowed overnight and
we had a rather amusing time trying to get the rear wheel drive van
up the hill in the ice. We all pushed and rocked the car mightily,
I had a go at driving but all to no avail.
- Gave up and got the tram. Arrived, Alan did his talk,
then we sat around and ate and talked to Vadar the NUUK chairman
who seemed to have a somewhat encyclopaedic knowledge of all things
computer-related over a considerable time span.
- Did my talk carefully adjusted to a load of 'suits',
'GNOME today and tommorow' prefixed with Hebrews 13:8, suffixed
with Job 19:23.
- Then off to the university to do the talk again but
slightly more technicaly. There were loads of people,
perhaps the most I have spoken to in one room, 450 or so people.
Lots of questions, lots of interest. Great.
- Alan's talk was more interesting and technical the
2nd time which was good.
- Presented with Ping T-shirt, and a pewter beer mug
from NUUK; excellent. Off to bar to baptise the mug in free NUUK
- Eat and sleep.
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,
