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, a quick breakfast and off to
Aldeburgh to see the photography chap for the wedding.
A nicee sort of guy, said we need a list of shots we
want, seemed reasonable. Interesting to see the various
mounting options for laminated pictures in frames.
- Home to Bruce & Anne's, tea and set too
making invitations, rather pretty - the process
involving stamping butterfly holes out of the card,
folding paper, tying pink shear bows.
- Lunch, chicken & pork pie, turnip curry
soup, and back to creating cards. Addressed most
cards, rang round to locate various people.
- Read things after lunch, poured over the
various New Scientists lying around, interesting
article on how Man & Women's pain thresholds differ.
Women are more sensitive to pain - except at
childbirth than men, and men are less sensitive to
pain when there's an attractive nurse around.
- Went for a run across the warren, first
for quite a long time, good to loosen the joints.
Back home, shower, sherry, dinner, excellent apple
pie made by Bruce & roast Guinea fowl.
- Looked up the Beaufort scale, which does
indeed go up to 17, good. Bed earlyish.
- Awake in the night 3->8 with fiendish
(muscular) pain in the neck / spine, sat up and read
a rather interesting account of the Whaling ship
'Exeter' rammed and sunk by a 85ft sperm whale in the
middle of the Pacific. Rather a gory but true tale,
the inspiration for Moby Dick.
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,
