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 at 6.00am, feeling bad indeed. Downstairs
to catch a cab, met CampD and woke Ettore and Anna. Off
with them to the station to take Luis and Dave's train
tickets since they were importuned somewhat.
- Tried to sleep on the crazily bad train
seats with no luck. Off to find a hotel on the tube.
Anna had her purse stolen on the tube. Having tried to
'power nap' with no real success, we headed out for
food, and Anna got run into by a motorbiker undertaking
a turning car. [ this gave us a clue as to why the
pavement is guarded everywhere by very battered looking
metal staunchions ].
- Lunch then off for more wandering, finally
back to get a Taxi to the airport, read the FT,
fiddled with various things.
- Safe flight, sat next to an interesting chap
in the shipping business for a Kuwait based company. Got
on the train for Cambridge. Did some gnome-vfs hacking,
the Mime DB parsing is just incredibly slow. Then again
it seems to append large chunks of data a character at
a time into a GString. Got some dramatic wins, refactored
some cut and paste evilness, ~120 -> ~45ms, much more
reasonable, noticably more snappy starting nautilus.
- J' picked me up from the station, looking
more lovely than ever and more amusing than ever.
Home, dinner, 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,
