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
- To a salmon and trout farm. Amazingly the trout
and salmon had been brought as eggs in a ship from England.
The first 3 tries failed, with ice melting over the equator
etc. The 4th try put the eggs in a wooden box with ice,
layers of moss and some charcoal, and made it intact. Thus
the first(?) trout/salmon of the southern hemisphere arrived
in 1864(?) and the trout thrived, whereas the salmon were
more difficult to introduce.
- Had a little dinner at the salmon falm - didn't
eat any fish.
- On to the National Park - saw some lovely old
gum trees, some of them extremely tall, and a waterfall or
two. An amazingly different and much colder climate under
the trees - with ancient ferns and spray from the water
- Cup of tea, and back home. Took Auntie & Uncle
out for a nice dinner - hit a place of intermediate quality
food - and somewhat strange demeanour - but local. They had
slot machines, and a direct computer link to the casino for
some instant gambling game; shocking.
- Back home; meandered through more photos - saw
some totaly shocking pictures of Father minus beard, plus
hair - and very young; couldn't really believe it was him.
Somewhat frightened by seeing that all the people I consider
old and past it, were once young and attractive. Being on
the brink of being old and past it is scary.
- 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,
