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
- Went to see Mark about active badges, excellent chap lent me
some of his nice Java source code. If only the Unix networking API was as
sensible looking as Java's.
- The list of begginner projects I hinted at here is in fact
not a public list, but a conglomeration of various TODOs, project lists
and mental notes variously. If anyone wants a begginners project do mail
me and I'll have a think.
- Hacked up an active badge sighting decoder from Mark's source.
- Started organising material for my report.
- Ballroom dancing, relaxing, encouraging and fun. By the simple
expedient of reading a book beforehand and codifying the steps it appears
that I can just about do the turning Waltz, albeit in a suitably graceless
and clumsy fashion. Just looked up grace, whilst my primary understanding of
it is in the Amazing sense, '(Theol.) unmerited favour of God, divine
regenerating, inspiring, and strengthening influence' it turns out that this
forms only a small facet of the wealth of expression it can provide; must
use it more.
- More report hacking until late.
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,
