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
- Rusty woke me at 9, shower, nice breakfast, off in
the pouring rain to the conference centre, Rusty was sadly ill
equiped to deal with the torrential nature of european weather.
- Played with the projector; tried to get John ( of
Sun ) setup before me. John did a nice talk on Open Office, a
lot to say there!
- I did a Helix/Gnome spiel ( as demanded ), inserted
a lengthy scare section on .Net, why we have to kill it before
it happens, how we can etc. Demo'd Nautilus, Evolution,
Gnumeric, Guppi3. Worst set of demos to date, still Gnumeric
was golden, guppi3 had rendering bugs though. The first question
was 'what was I taking, and where can I get some of it ?' :-) I
think it was a positive one. Another ( worryingly was 'Who is
Miguel ?' - hard to believe indeed ). Told them all that they
shouldn't applaud me, but buy beer for Gnome hackers.
- It turned out that Paul, Jabba, Laslo, Dee, Erwan and
Charles had turned up from Sun to keep an eye on me; went to
lunch with them, John and Rusty afterwards. Bought them all
lunch [ what profligacy ]. Great to catch up with Paul's work.
- Walked to Erwan's flat, met his fiance in passing,
he kindly offered to drive me to the airport ( Taxis still on
strike ). Waited for the plane.
- Started to read mail, read through some of Vlad's
tar moniker; interesting stuff, raises some nice issues.
- Got home eventualy, dinner. Fixed up oaf patch,
removed brokenness in oaf/po/, committed. Had a good idea
about Bonobo contexts on the train.
- Did a new gb release to clear
my TODO, and get the new features swilling out there.
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,
