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
- Watched 'Dr Dolittle 2' and various other
movies of dubious merit, but passing entertainment
value. Flight only 13 1/2 hours not 18 - excellent,
must have mis-calculated from East coast time somehow.
- Hacked bonobo-config around to cut and
paste the troublesome Any <-> XML code out of bonobo
( messed up by the UINode transition ), and moved it
into bonobo-config-utils.c so we can pass a doc node
around on the stack constantly - so we can set an
encoding - so that it will be UTF-8 clean; horay !
- Got peeved with bonobo-config as well,
hmm - not good. Somewhat highly excited about seeing
J' again after so long.
- Finaly arrived - managed to go through the
'Goods to declare' section without being charged duty -
- Loitered outside by the Exchange desk or
'Foreign Money' counter as the terminaly ethnocentric
Americans would say.
- The lovely lady arrived shortly afterwards
from an unexpected direction - wonderful to hold her in
my arms again after so long; wow. I'd forgotten so many
wonderful things about her - it's quite silly really.
- Bus, then train, then taxi home & a nice cup
o' tea. Admired the nice flat, unpacked, need to buy a
modem. Got back to bonobo-config, eating 'top deck' [
another excellent non-Nestle chocolate from Cadburies ],
and drinking tea.
- Off to her house group, had a great time,
lift back to 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,
