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 at 7.00, breakfast ( they forgot to put cheese in my
'bagels' I discovered in the Taxi ). Arrived, talked to Trent - a
guy working on Python / Mozilla stuff about component merging.
- Did my talk, it went well except for the fact that I
missed Paolo's beautiful Bonobo / Perl stuff off of the handout.
[FIXME: - link to slides here in due course ]. Felt really tired,
less enthusiastic than normal.
- Got to booth eventualy, uploaded mail, perhaps too
late for the English weekend, talked to lots and lots of people.
Keith Packard turned up just as the Monkeys ran out, we got shot
of all our monkeys and shirts and CDs - some pens left.
- Carried the HP box to a Taxi - strange driver, back
to the hotel, out for a company celebratory meal.
- Coach back to Boston - started the hacking for a
fast transition to Evolution - turning off full body indexing
on a load of archive folders so I can import all my mail
- No-one responded to my new CORBA plan on the bonobo
list - they all hate me. Imported 190 Mb of Pine mail into
evolution in a couple of minutes - the full text indexing is what
takes the time.
- The road was covered in ice, and everyone was going
really slowly, some lorries on the road ahead were sliding across
the road sideways, and it was pretty hair raising stuff. Luckily
we survived, our driver was really good, although he liked to
drive along the rumble strip to get better grip - rather noisy.
- Unloaded the bus, checked mail, headed off for the
Barracks with Paolo, sleep.
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,
