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, off to return the (unmarked)
'Win' Modem I purchased yesterday a 'Dynalink' miracle
of technology. Bought a standard modem instead, insisted
on getting an AOL subsription pack - a local ISP is no
use to me, and hey - AOL are a big company, they must be
- Resigned to installing it on a Windows computer
to suck the settings for PPP etc. out; spent ages installing
the thing - only to discover that (now I can search on-line)
that the service is utterly useless to Linux users. Frustrated
almost beyond words; tried to control myself whilst immediately
canceling my account - still, they got $24-95 out of me.
Dumbfounding - I should have gone with a cheap local ISP
- Finaly managed to get PPP working via someone else'
thing. Magicaly Red Hat turn off chat PPP debugging by default
which sucks rocks. Furthermore, Australians seem to insist on
using 'Username:' intead of '[Ll]ogin:' which sucks even more
- Started pulling 16Mb of mail over the modem ...
hmm, committed libbonobo bits, started pushing some mail.
- Chewed mail - suprisingly little of interest so far,
amazing; you stop writing to people ... and they just stop
writing to you.
- J' arrived home, went for a nice run together
while dinner cooked itself in t'oven. Bible study, 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,
