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. Breakfast with David Faure, discussed my
thesis that XML sucks [ or at least it's not a the panacea that
it's mooted as by many ].
- Off to the conference hall - Steven lent me his TTF
fonts - cool, Christian helped get them working.
- Desparate hacking on my talk as yet still in outline
form. Quick lunch break, continued hacking, finished 10 minutes
- Went Ok, waved my snapped off car radio ariel at the
screen. Overran by ~10 minutes, too much material. Christian's
talk went well - very positive responses. Very much mobbed by
the mob, for Monkeys, T-Shirts, stickers, pens & all things
good and Gnomeish.
- Dog tired. Wandered around, coffee, ate at the
doorstop sandwitch shop. Relaxed a little, long and tedious
stuff - considered fleeing to Cambridge. Caught only the end
of Stephen's "Zero Copy, Hidden Dragon" talk - sad.
- Sat and got bored by people talking at extraordinaty
length about demographics, and plans for future conferences.
Managed to discover the issue with Unix sockets though ! :-)
Did manage to see Al & James'
Worldforge which looked very pretty.
- Off to the student bar ... drink but no food.
After wandering with Al & James through central Manchester for
a while we managed to discover a Chippie which was great.
- Back for some more refreshment & chat, then 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,
