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, had breakfast - cereal and nice fruit bread,
with Auntie & Uncle.
- Off to Mt. Wellington, drove up it - pretty much
cheating, but an excellent view in every direction eastwards
from the top. Patches of snow, and extremely cold [ hang on to
the car door - or it gets blown off; or likewise, it'll blow
the milk right out of your tea :-]. Could see all of Hobart,
and the pretty, frilly coastline, and mountains in the clouds
in the distance. Very beautiful.
- Back to a food court in Hobart for dinner; Mexican
food - in Australia, pleasant.
- Out again to Bonarong zoo - didn't quite know
what to expect. Got greeted by a kangaroo leaping towards the
latest visitor with good things to eat. With a mouth somewhat
like a sheep - and prepared to eat out of your hand. Most
endearing, some with 'Roo's sitting in Kanga's pouch. Saw and
stroked a wombat, koala bear, lots of kangaroos. Lots of other
interesting creatures, possums, enchiladas, an emu and various
other birds, Tazmanian 'devil's etc. etc. much fun.
- Back home; fed the chickens with the spare feed
the kangaroos didn't get, watched the news and eat in front of
the TV - highly decadent. Bed & stuff.
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,
