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 early, had breakfast. Overnight it
snowed quite a bit, and the scenery is just
beautiful - the snow blown against the trees so that
from some angles they look like normal brown trees,
but as you peer around them, suddenly this straight
white edging appears with the sun gleaming off it.
All the tiny twigs tripled in height by the
accumulated snow, and the trees glistening.
- Drove to the airport, lots of slidiness on
the road, and extraordinary mist, about a metre thick
floating above the ground in a band you can see below
and above, interesting.
- Checked in and said farewell to Tuomas and
Miia - very kind hosts. Outside the ploughs clearing
the runway, and people hosing off the aeroplanes from
cherry pickers with hot salt water (I assume).
- Got the plane, back to England, raining
there and somehow the cold is damper and more
penetrating. No one at home, and no J'. Played the
guitar and worshiped to cheer myself up, fingers nicely
- Looks like the file server has totally
died, good grief, horrors, more wasted time. Phoned
Stuart, best man for Matthew Powell, and ascertained
that he didn't know if he could come to our wedding,
bother, getting on well it seems though.
- Dinner, watched some costrume drama with
the parents, David Mansergh phoned, buying a house
must let him know some dates.
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,
