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, early due to 2 hours ahead of
GMT, wandered across the road - got pretty cold, went to
the end of the KDE talk by Harri Porten, then part of
a fsck talk, Werner turned up & talked to him, while
adapting my talk to Harri's.
- Off to the Lan room (sponsored by Sun) to
suck mail, eat a tad of lunch.
- Off to the main room, gave my talk -
disposed of several monkeys, tried to enthuse some
people, showed a few fun demos. Much like the Fosdem
talk + a bit of Gnome 1.4 perl binding goodness.
- Back outside, talked to Harri for a good
while, interesting chap. Phoned TigerT & sat in the
hotel - talked to Werner about various things - nice
- TigerT and Miia arrived and took me for a
whirlwind tour of Helsinki, seeing lots of pretty
- Stopped off at the mall to buy some
medicine for the dog & some reindeer meat for me to
sample. Then on to their pleasant semi-detached home,
in the snow, made friends with Tino their poodle
puppy after an initially apprehensive sniffing.
- Had a tour of the Kuosmanen residence,
a generally lovely place, with a Sauna, nice and
warm too. Had a delicious and eclectic use up meal,
and talked for a while.
- Saw the amazing things Tiger does with
Nautilus & scripts of various sorts, and the marvels
of Microsoft flight sim.
- Converted the seating area into a bed,
chewed some work mail, wind getting louder and
stronger, and the snow starting.
- Fixed some nasty issues in Nautilus,
recently created, committed my eel bits & slept.
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,
