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
- Woke very early, bad news. J' had slept even
worse - poor dear. Took one look at the free breakfast and
de-camped to a decent hotel.
- Found the tourist office and tried to locate a
decent church - "I'm sorry we only really have 'catholic'
churches here" - upon further inspection of the paper in
front of here - a whole host of churches were discovered.
- Went to a pentecostal church in a hotel - on
the basis that they would have been singing for hours
before the sermon - so we might catch the teaching.
- Interesting accent of preacher seemed to be due
to his parents being Dutch, speaking Irish Engish [ ie. 'th'
= 't', cramped vowels etc. ] and having been in Brazil as
a missionary's child. Rather difficult to understand the
message - nice people though. "I know I have a bad voice,
but even a sewing machine is a Singer" - joke.
- On to Kinvara to escape Galway and it's
hostels. J' rather distressed by fatigue and life. Found
a lovely B&B for us, single room - 2 beds [ of course ].
- Went for a 3 mile walk around the small castle
and through the back of the village. Guinness and chips
for dinner with my lovely girl.
- Enjoyed the comforts of the B&B, bed early.
Lay in bed grinning at J on the other side of the room,
and talked for hours - quite nullifying the efficacy of
going to bed early. Really lovely to talk so long, and
learn so much about my girl. 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,
