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 early, continued to prepare my talk, did talk, went
well I think. Slated Kde/Qt rather more than I intended to, sorry
guys, I love you really; got scolded by Telsa.
- Met Herr Janik, which was cool, had several long and
interesting conversations, it seems he has written guitest properly
so it actually works; so look out for 'Gerd' it does amazing demos
- Alan and Telsa turned up which was fun, drank Jolt cola
and sat around outside where it was quiet and peaceful. Met Caolan
pronounced Quay-lawn [ NB. the ( incorrect ) American pronunciation
as Kway ], talked libwv, libole2, StarOffice, KWord, password
protection, compression, encryption, biff, escher, life etc, very
good to be able to talk about the guts of MS' formats. Talked to
Tim about how he became a gtk maintainer, the story of early gimp
days and how he got into it all, most interesting.
- Back to the stand for E-mail, some guy wants a port of
gb to windows apparently. Rumour has it there is an almost working
gb equivalent called VB for that platform.
- Back to the hotel, food and hacking. After an hour of
hacking remembered it was Sunday and stopped, doh. Why was I
speaking on Sunday anyway ? perhaps because Miguel had to drop out,
investigations continue, there better be a good excuse.
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,
