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
- It's sad in the night when, awaking slightly,
you reach out to pat your spouse, and they are not there,
- Up in time for breakfast. Back to my room to
hack on the talk; then to the conference room to setup,
an hour early, so headed out for some more sausage, leaving
Jens to guard the laptop.
- Talked to Jonathan from the US army, looking
to use Linux on the battlefield; interesting.
- Arrived back, talked to John the editor of a
UK Linux Magazine. Did my talk (too fast as normal)
got most of the major points out I think. Got told off for
not demoing gnumeric / abiword, but just StarOffice
afterwards, sigh. [ and after getting AbiWord to work
inside evolution I forgot to show it ].
- A number of questions afterwards; tried to
answer most of them. Someone (else) trying to get me to
get Miguel to go to a conference, this time in Cuba.
- Met Sebastian Wilhelmi - which was
excellent, most interesting to talk. After his prolongued
battle with threads, async design seems better to him.
Discussed the various current issues in ORBit2.
- Back to the booth - being dismantled,
Christian and co. did a great job, said goodbye. Back
to the hotel, phoned J' and had some applied relaxing
and thumb twiddling.
- Wandered around Karlsruhe, not wanting to
sit down for a meal, tried to find a take away place.
As a desparate last resort - McDonalds, hmm. Looked
around the castle, the town fans out radially from it.
- Back, 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,
