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
- Slept well, woke to freezing cold. Lots of wind.
- A relatively pleasant breakfast, with real bacon
not the twirly, cremated, nightmares of American pedigree.
- Wandered down the Fubar steps past the Katoomba
falls ( a pretty waterfall sheeting over the cliffs ). Very
wonderful to see the light and shade playing in the valley,
and also looking up from the shade to see the raindrops
being blown off the waterfall, and drifting in the sun
light above like a swarm of myriad fireflies.
- Lots of steps, got almost to the bottom, saw
the coal mine entrance they have there. Grief, they complain
about the 'dangerous' life of the miners, even when they
have a thick flat seam with perfect drainage etc. etc. they
should try their contemporaries jobs mining coal in England
miles out under the sea. Wandered along a little, very
pleasant views, countryside & company.
- Took the scenic railway up the mountain, a
52degree incline - quite steep. Amusingly the train had
a mesh roof that was angled from one side of the car to
the other - because of the shape of the hole in the crack
that it rocketed up.
- Had a beer in a revolving cafe at the top. Julia
noticed a large roller coaster ride there, that looks
horrendously dangerous. Sadly it's not in operation for
reasons unknown. Walked back into town.
- Lunch at a nice cafe, and then caught the train
back to Strathfield in the snow or at least hail; hmm.
- Back home, quick turn-round, back out to church.
- Back to 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,
