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 later. Went into Hobart, and looked around the
Museum. Finaly saw a nice model of the sunken ship under the
Hobart bridge ( it rammed it some 25 years ago and broke a
great section off which collapsed on it and sank it ). A very
odd bridge construction - with lots of spindly concrete legs
all meeting at a concrete plinth, and then a somewhat less
messy arrangement above the water - where people can see;
strange. Lots of other interesting Aboriginal and misc.
displays. Confirmation of Jared's "Humans killed the
megafauna" thesis, but perhaps partialy by fire rather than
- Lunch at the cafe / coffee house, and back into
Auntie's little red bus, and on to the botanical gardens. A
very pleasant meander around the gardens, talked to Rolf -
who has a most amusingly droll sense of humor. eg. apparently
they have whole armies of 'banana benders' in Queensland.
- Back home, read about the development of writing,
inventions, idea-diffusion etc. much of interest. Dinner, and
then sat around in the lounge, played guitar vaguely, and
stayed up very late talking to Auntie about family history and
intrigue. BS & 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,
