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
- Woken by Thomas, roused from my bed. Checked
the OO build - it finished, seemingly cleanly. Only 1
problem - the binary has no debugging symbols, argh! oh
and it doesn't run in the build dir for some reason.
- Frantic house cleaning and food preparation,
Robert phoned to say he wasn't coming, just seconds before
I was about to drive to Cambridge to pick him up. A great
- Matthew and Kate arrived, Matthew is a qualified
Doctor and Lawyer which makes for an interesting combination.
Also worked at Bristol when the problems were in full swing.
Had a most pleasant afternoon chatting to them both. Lovely
- Joined 'Block Buster' and rented eXistenZ and
the 'Tailor of Panama', watched eXistenZ - rather a good
movie, especially for compulsiver gamers.
- Off to Cambridge to a concert of Bach and his
Pre-decessors in St Columbus' off Downing Street. Got
chatting to the chap next to me, turns out he's in charge of
IT strategy for Glaxo / Smith-Klein, God moves in strange
ways. Very pleased with the pulput which had We preach
Christ crucified carved on it. Concert interesting but
fairly mediocrely performed - despite period instruments etc.
- Back home, bed 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,
