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 late; midday, breakfast, washed up. A tad
of mail grokking - suddenly realised it was Julia's
birthday and that I had nearly missed my scheduled phoning
slot - gasp. The horrors of the thought of explaining how
I had forgotten being very apparent I hastily fetched the
'oneTel' box and dialed feverishly. Mercifully I was not
too late (DG), lovely to catch up with the creature, and
to wish her a happy birthday.
- Considered going for a run. Read Ravi's nice
GB patch - overall extremely helpful. Built the new
gnome-control-center & bonobo-conf.
- Wrote a new 'self help' E-mail for the Ximian
crew - basic programming tips, from a basic programmer.
- Got out of my pyjamas at 5.00pm and went for
a run - got rather over heated rather rapidly, so stopped
after 1 lap - bad news, very unfit.
- Sami called up & I went over there with Derrin
for Chinese food, and then onto Jurassic Park III. The film
was totaly uninteresting, but the engineering was rather
fun. Still rather insulted that on a project of that scale
and import it is assumed the engineers will get it wrong.
Electric fences nothing, I'd have great double ferroconcrete
barriers with multi-stranded individualy tensioned and cross
re-inforced steel wires - not to mention the inter-fence
distance being mined with great big explosive bolt firing
booby traps, etc. sigh, how we are maligned as a
- Back to bed - fairly early.
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,
