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 late, excellent feel abnormaly rested, no
deadline pressure for a while. Breakfast with Ettore, very
pleasant, Ettore is enjoying life it seems.
- To the airport; the traffic was manic. Plane
very delayed. Eventualy got on to find Jim Gettys and Ian
on board already, of course we are all economy class except
- Foolishly decided to watch 'Mission to Mars' instead
of hacking, oh dear oh dear. Dripping with the kind of nauseating,
self satisfied sentimentality that you expect from Hollywood. The
catch phrase about standing on planets was trite, untrue and
utterly Godless. Dumbing down featured fully; 'the atmosphere is
70% nitrogen 30% Oxygen' to which some bungling copy-writer had
clearly retro-added 'otherwise known as air' for the benefit of
whom ? terrible.
- Jim came to see me and showed me his nice toy, with
built in microdrive; even smaller than I imagined it could be;
340Mb in less than half the size of a pcmcia card; pretty
impressive. Apparently it even ships with gdb in the flash,
- Taxi back with Ian, dinner. Mailed Chet from IBM
about shrinking ORBit stubs & skels.
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,
