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, 14Mb of mail, bzip2'd it for good
measure, and sucked. Need to write a talk today for this
evening and get some demos rustled up.
- Good to be back at work. Started reading mail
and re-building my system from the bottom up, again again.
- Lots of mail, mostly very positive.
- Started writing the
SLUG talk, what fun - tried to generate some new copy.
- Nailed a nasty to detect bonobo escaping code
bug, that only MALLOC_CHECK_=2 would see.
- Finished the talk over several hours; will
upload it tommorow. Off to J's, collected her - looking
georgeous in her pink skirt etc., and then on to SLUG.
- Managed to locate the building, hung around
near a group of likely looking hacker types. Met Jeff
Waugh - nice guy. Having never been to a LUG before,
somewhat perplexed by the question and answer session;
interesting in parts though.
- Got some teeth into the talk; having J' to grin
at when one is idling was nice - and to pick up ones annoying
mannerisms, some good questions.
- Off to a rather fine Chinese place afterwards,
had dinner with Jeff, Ken, [Nasdaq?], Gus, Jeff W, Andrew & ~
Mary & my lass; very pleasant. Passed up on the karaoke
opportunity - apparently "I sing" so this was odd :-) They
even paid for our meal - wow.
- Back home at great length on the train; 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,
