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, off to the 'Thrifty' car rental
place, and then headed off to 'Palm Beach' - supposedly
where 'Home and Away' - a TV comedy fantasy - is filmed.
- Swam in the sea - a little cold, few people
around, too early in the morning ( got there before the
Germans ), wandered down the beach, tried to find a non-
Nestle ice cream without success, and drove into 'Avalon'.
Passed all the surfers in a traffic jam getting to the
beach - bought some sandwiches.
- Off into Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park,
lovely countryside and water. Drove to West Head - just
beautiful. Looked out over Broken Bay, Pittwater and the
Pacific generaly, beautiful water, sailing boats almost
capsizing as they hit the headwind and their spinachers
- To the resolute picnic place, ( complete
with free gas-powered, automated, municipal
barbequeues - amazing ), and did a walk to see some
Aboriginal hand paintings (very faint) and sandstone
outlines - well endowed. Apparently there are Lyrebirds
(?) there that imitate noises such as other bird calls,
and even chainsaw sounds.
- On to Cottage Point, past Akuna Bay where
they had a dry dock for keeping boats over the winter,
where they were stacking the huge numbers of motor
boats 3 high. A very fine ice cream desert and Tea at
the Cottage Point restaurant, looking over the
various Islets - lovely.
- Back home, did a release of bonobo 1.0.13
that depends on oaf, _and_ actualy builds with the
recent header movement everywhere. Tried to be
constructive on the g_atexit disagreement on gcl,
and get bonobo-activation to free it's resources right.
- Dinner & 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,
