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 very early, no taxi, waited 15 mins and phoned Brian
Dobson, somehow the booking got confused - he turned up rather smartly,
and we got to Stanstead on time thankfully.
- Flew to Munich and hired a car. Eager to drive I started to
engine only to find that the car had (cunningly) been left in gear, with
the handbrake off, and that the clutch was where the foot brake should be
in any sane car. Nearly wiped out the opposite car, much the the
perplexment of a passing pedestrian.
- Julia drove instead to start with. Got to Salzburg after an
amusingly high-speed drive on the autobahn. And eventually located Hotel
Had complimentary champagne in our room, overlooking the beautiful lake.
Lots of sunshine and good cheer.
- Had a lovely time in our room, slept, woke at 9.00pm, had a
nice room service meal, shower, bed. Plagued by the extremely odd feeling
of having a ring on my finger. Further convinced that un-married men
wearing rings must be hyper-effeminate.
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,
