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
- Picked up hire car, signed to say that I had read
a massive swathe of text I hadn't read - sigh. Why are lawyers
so pernicious ?
- Wow - automatic cars are so easy to drive, the
thing has amazing clutch control. Careered all over the road
whilst I got used to the car - somewhat scary for J.
- Off to Cape Cod. Got to the bottom of the cape and
stopped off in a car park facing the beach - lots of sand. Went
for a walk down the beach in the fierce wind, could see the grains
of sand moving as we walked. A pleasant stroll, as we walked back
our footprints got progressively more faint, until we couldn't
see them by the steps - such are the works of man.
- Onto a park visitors center, mostly empty - off
season - watched a couple of short documentaries on the cape,
J and I disagree about how long it took to form and the role
of glaciation it seems.
- Drove back to some town on the cape and popped into
an Italian joint to have dinner - rather excellent in fact. Walked
to the dock, and had an ice cream on the way.
- More crazy driving home, parked the car in the garage
near the barracks, popped into CBC for a quick ale. Home, bed.
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,
