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
- Carried hacking through the night. Hit an
evil bonobo-activation show-stopper, gargh. Fixed that
and carried on fleshing it out - a talk mostly full of
screenshots and demos I think. 5.15am, and still
writing - perhaps sleeping on the plane is the way ahead.
Finally bed at 6.10 for 50 minutes or so ... gack.
- Up at 7.00, quick breakfast, feeling just
totally dead, train to Gatwick, plane at 11.00am,
delayed ~ 1 hour by Air traffic cockups. Had to check
my penknife into the hold by itself, having packed
- Slept on the plane for several hours,
large seats on Continental, and no "safety demo" - as
far as I remember.
- Finally arrived, through immigration and
customs in a trice, and onto the long wait for my
penknife in a cardboard box - the last thing off the
plane, and after I spent all that time chopping the
legs off my trousers etc. NYC very foggy, off to
Jacob Javits in a cab, lots of bridge over what
seems like undeveloped ex-heavy industrial / swamp
- Found the lads, tried to locate Havoc,
(gone touristing), met Chris & various others,
talked lots, showed some bits of Gnome 2.0 off
( what works ). Phoned J' - to let her know I'm alive.
- Off to a Korean restaurant with Ben,
Amie [ soon to be married in disneyland ], Ettore
and Anna - much fun. Dead beat.
- Back to the hotel, tempted to sleep,
off to Kinko's instead, managed to print out my
slides at high res - horay ! a competant tech.
guy there. ( 34-35 & Maddison ). It seems I left
my (3) UK->US power adaptors at home (again).
- Back to a real bed, talk tommorow morning.
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,
