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; discovered trna's disk was full, mail must be
piling up somewhere.
- Got on with getting Monikers back into top shape again,
Dietmar in-proc componentized some of it: nice; finished the stream
and file extenders.
- Off to London; took 2 1/2 hours to get to the Barbican
center for a performance of the Messiah; met Mike and his lady: Catherine

many arias, which indeed did not disappoint, but the striking part of
the early exchanges was the crisp articulation and coordination of the
chamber orchestra. Nevertheless the Messiah is all about the
barnstorming chorusses, and with the choir on such good form the house
was treated to a rousing rendition of And the Glory of the Lord, and
the no less striking Alleuia Chorus, complete with risen audience. A
haunting performance of I know that my redeemer liveth led us
perfectly into the final chorus, which one could feel echoing down the
corridors of a very satisfied Barbican Centre.
- Precicely; and so I got on with various Bonobo tasks on
- Committed a slurp of stuff; chewed mail awhile,
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,
