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 lateish, packed, off into town. Walked for
miles and miles, managed to find suitable presents for all
the neccessary people at length. Ate at 'Eddie Rockets', too
much food - very American.
- Bus back, wrote note to Lisa, and left for
airport extremely early. Trapped in traffic for an hour - a
horror story of Meeks clutch control. Only stalled a couple
of times ( at crucial moments naturaly ).
- Got to the airport, crossed the foot and mouth
mats - amazingly good the Irish reaction to F&M, everywhere
we visited, car-parks in towns, some shops - all had
disinfectant mats for everyone. Consistantly everywhere,
paths were blocked off, and everyone was talking it extremely
seriously. An amazing contrast to England where there were
seemingly no real precautions even at the hight of the
outbreak. Perhaps due to the area being more rural, perhaps
1/3 of the economy being agriculture instead of 1/20th in
- Flew back to Stanstead, Ryan Air - on time and
cheap: lovely. Located the car in the long term car-park -
- Tescos & home, quick dinner and exhausted 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,
