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
- Slept a couple of hours on the couch in the office; bad
news for my mental equilibrium. Flight at 7.50am to Las Vegas, despite
the massive and daunting queue we managed to get to the plane.
- Arrived in Las Vegas, the cabbie tried to give me a blank
receipt ( as they all do ), when I asked him to fill it out, he said
'You must be a Christian' which was rather amusing.
- Got to the hotel, registered, started moving incredibly
heavy boxes of stuff from A to B, it seems that the center ( whilst
being attached to the hotel is a long walk from it, past innumberable
slaving gamblers ).
- Met Ariel and tried to get him checked in; installed
Turbo Linux and Gnome 1.0 on the machine. Back to our room for a
snack. Then lugged 500 Helix Pre-2 CDs to the conference centre
for the opening. Lots of interest, loads of people at the booth;
we gave out 350+ CDs to people, lots of interest in glade and
gnome-print. Ariel also does a groovy gimp demo. Met Rusty, and
went for dinner.
- Dinner at the Eiffel tower place, rather expensive,
but quality food and wine is worth paying for, especialy since the
chaps are doing such a stirling job.
- Back to work up a presentation, stayed up very late
working on it.
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,
