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.

- Up late - bank holiday, good Friday. Bacon
and egg butties for breakfast, and got to the sanding.
The floor sander - much like a large, extremely heavy
vacuum cleaner was my field, with J' on the hand sander.
- Hours of sanding in an extremely dusty room,

- Bed at night in a house full of chaos, dust
and re-located bits of this and that, amazing to see the
ammount of dust on the face masks.
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,
