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, tried to resuscitate the server,
the hard disk sounding _very_ flakey indeed, strange
clicking noises during an e2fsck, I wonder if Journaling
filing systems tend to hide disk flakeyness more.
- Tried to think about the NetProject talk
at the same time. Rescued some of the data from the
server, tried to setup the USB modem under RH 7.2,
a total lack of plug and play joy. The embarrasment
of grabbing the W98 laptop to find the information.
- After some considerable stress located
the OpenWorld specific bit and bingo, horay. Tucked
the old hardware away, now for some work, sucked
- It looks like Alex has committed some
fixes based on my nautilus outline, hmm. Upgraded
the other laptop to RH 7.2, and duplicated my ADSL
setup there as a backup.
- Lots of mail chewing, started on
nautilus, committed some bits, dinner, nice phone
call from J'. Fixed a bonobo buglet, chewed more
mail, tried to get my system into a workable state,
somehow evolution got deleted in some RPM
transaction, great !
- Tried to ssh tunnel into Ximian, but
network borkage made this a mamouth task, grief,
also the staging server seems to miss out on
evolution snapshots, bother.
- Chewed more mail, wrote a status
report, almost nothing done, bed very late.
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,
