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, packed franticaly, off to CAF Australia
so J' can get some work in before we leave. Pinched her internet
connection - wow, the speed of DSL after a modem; nice.
- Congratulations flooding in it seems - very lovely
to have so many well wishers. Not so many well wishers on the
mailing lists; sigh. The -Werror faction, another unwinnable
battle to make Gnome easier to build.
- Continued struggling with the horrors of
bonobo-conf and lots of xml fragments, all of which somehow need
doc nodes - but not to really be part of a common document; sigh.
- Off to the airport, flew to Hobart.
- Met Sylvia and Rolf on arrival - great to see them,
picked up the luggage and headed in Auntie's vanlet thing to
their home. Beautiful scenery, a lovely house; sat in the
kitchen and lit a fire in the hearth and had a nice cup of tea.
- Got to know Rolf better which was nice, and then
Dianne ( Cousin Mark's g/f ) & Natasha her daughter arrived,
and then Leslie and Leon arrived - lovely older
people. Had a most amusing and pleasant evening, admired the
house, Rolf's painting, fine wine, pumpkin soup, salad, meat,
- Bed earlyish - very tired.
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,
