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
- It seems everyone is pretty happy with the ORBit2 /
linc changes, so I'll shove them in Monday after a bus load of
- Today is the day that the sets of parents / families
get to meet each other; prayed hard, breakfast.
- Commenced cooking - or at least J' did, I played with
the fire - Mr G' is bringing some coal, washed up.
- Bruce & Anne Griffin arrived and we set about getting
the dinner going, umpteen baked potatoes in the oven. Auntie
Louise and Uncle Antony arrived, then Cousin Tim and Julie his
wife, my parents still absent. Finally they arrived.
- Immediately nothing happened - except the coat hooks
fell off the wall under the weight; no fights, no clawings, no
lost eyes, all teeth stayed in sockets - hmm; perhaps they don't
know these are the in-laws-to-be. Introduced them all.
- Proceeded to have a very serene and pleasant
afternoon, set of introductions, huge meal - fine champagne,
etc. great. Eventualy they all left, claiming they were very
happy with the other lot etc. Phew - an answer to prayer.
- Miguel reports that the C# compiler compiles itself
and produces an MSIL executable with only ~20 errors, wow - it
looks like it is almost self bootstrapping: the point where we
can move it to a fully free system; wonderful.
- Phoned David to re-arrange the New Year's Eve
beano, subtracting the walk to the Seven Sisters. Sat on the
sofa next to my love & chewed mail, synced with the parents.
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,
