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
- Didn't wake up very readily, extremely late in fact.
Hillary picked me up and we managed to get to church on time,
played violin in the service.
- Got a lift back with Kate and Sammi, pleaseant dinner.
- Bummed around in the afternoon, tried to read some Greek
and discovered I'm rusting quickly.
- Church in the evening; small music group, lots of
harmonizing. Excellent sermon on 2 Corinthians 3, prayer, brought
Ben home for tea.
- After tea, set off to take Ben home, around 10.15pm.
As we turned out of the road Ben said "there's a dodgy looking man".
As we reached the 2nd turning we were acosted by a man covered in
blood and bleeding profusely who said something incoherent about
Taxi drivers and being mugged. Reversed the car extremely quickly
back home, luckily didn't hit anyone. Phoned the ambulance and the
police. Managed to give them the impression the Taxi driver mugged
the passenger; hey ho. Ben meanwhile donned gloves and attended to
the poor bleeding individual. I eventualy returned, and grif, he
had been clobbered on the skull 3 times or so and was rather
- The chap said he had been in the car and they guy in
the back had flagged the taxi down, said he wanted to go to shirley
drive and dithered a bit, then he slugged the guy on the skull and
continued to beat him up as he got out of the car; [ apparently
the Taxi driver managed to slam him in the door a couple of times ]
took the guys money and then ran off.
- The ambulance arrived and sorted the chap out properly,
meanwhile the car owner then police arrived and questioned the chap.
Two ladies attended the scene, and we all gave statements ( correcting
the ealier misconceptions ). Ben said the chap was dressed in black
with a black leather jacket, average height, slim build, he took his
balaclava off as we passed him and Ben said he though he had short
fair hair. Then they started to search for evidance and sealed the
car and its environs off and called the dog unit which we saw arrive
just as we left for the 2nd time. Hopefully they can track the chap
across the tarmack.
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,
