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 early, out shopping for tommorow evening, bought scads of
food, back home & washed up.
- To work. Got a really nice mail from Ettore, and John Heard,
and IBM want me to do a Bonobo tutorial on their developerworks site
thing - fun.
- Finished Nicholson Baker's "The Mezzanine" so I could lend it
to Mark tonight, very amusing indeed. If one could always live at the level
of self conciousness, self awareness and introspection that he reports it
would be a fine thing. If an unexamined life is not worth living, Baker
provides the antidote to over-examination.
- Helped Dad fill out his computer training form - for some
reason the Government would like to train him for free.
- Continued hacking, discovered another idl compiler problem,
( not of my own creation ) fixed in a later version, updated and hacked on.
- Posted preliminary work to Elliot / the list. Found and fixed
the problems with marshaling unions - a bug in the generic marshalling
code, it seems.
- Off to the pub with Mark via his house. Ruth lent me 'Men are
from Mars, Women Are from Venus' - rather puterbed about it being a
"practical guide for ... getting what you want in your relationships" -
surely a guide to what you can give would be better, rather mercenary.
Mark is an excellent chap if I ever met one - and somewhat of an expert
on all matters historical, political, battleical etc.
- Downloaded the Actel speedtouch drivers in preparation for
immenant BT OpenWorld ADSL connection, hmm - brings back bad memories
of neverending kernel re-compilation. Time to pay Robert to learn
- Miguel phoned.
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,
