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 earlyish; off to Church at Thornleigh, a great
sermon from a member of the church.
- Back for lunch - nachos, siesta.
- Off to 'carols in the park' in the evening; Picked
up by Todd & Catherine as we were canoedling under a jackerander
tree walking from the station.
- A rather interesting carol session. It started with
a brass band of primary school children which was excellent
considering, and lots of fun people. Weather hot, but we had a
little shower. Talked to Matt back from camp - no-one went to
hospital this year, vs. 10 last year [ a rather over-engineered
plastic water slide with jump & lake ]. The State Emergency Service
(SES) - a bit like the UK's Territorial Army - but more useful [
they fix power lines, tree falls - huge hailstone damage etc. ]
was out in force, and the fire brigade on the scene.
- As it got darker, everyone lit candles stuck in the
sawn off tops of plastic bottles. There were a few speeches by
various political figures - which were horrendously out of
touch, staggeringly so. And a short talk by Pastor Neil - who'se
boots & lumberjack shirt, "check it out" message and humour
demonstrated quite aptly who was in touch with the moment.
- Sung several carols - a steak sandwich, and off home.
Somehow the heat militates against In the bleak midwinter
and other classic carols, but overall very encouraging.
- Toast, 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,
