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 late, showered and had a nice
breakfast of porrige like raspberry stuff, and
fine cheese & bread.
- Out for a walk in the snow with Tino,
amazing to see the river appearing from under a
section of flat snow, going over some rapids and
disapearing under the snow again.
- Back home, had some noodles & soup, and
saw the pictures from the Kuosmanen honeymoon in
Thailand, delayed until recently - looked fabulous.
- Off into town to visit the musems of
classical and contemporary art; many things of
interest, and some fabulous paintings. A collection
of Eero Jarnefelt, lots of depictions of Finnish life
at the turn of the last century and some striking
pictures by other painters. The modern art somewhat
whacked out - housed in a geometrically interesting
building, at least internally. While much of the art
uses Christian themes, some of it seems rather
antagnoistic, in the post Christian era you might
imagine artists will have to try and do something
creative instead of nihilistic - roll on that time.
- Off to a rather lovely restaurant for
some traditional Finnish cuisine, a slice of meat
pie to start with, and then a potatoe, sausage,
onion hot pot type thing - rather good, and very
filling then blueberry pie and a sort of buiscuity
type trifle thing, yum.
- Back home & sucked mail, read David
developerworks article, somewhat concerned by
other component models, such as CORBA, but a
- Hacked around a bit, committed a
libbonobo fix, closed a bug, not much done, fired
off my svg rending findings to the nautilus list. 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,
