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
- J' up very early, missed her at breakfast,
but found a trail of love notes instead; how sweet.
- Hacked on the OO.o build/hacking doc. got
a ton of useful criticism from various people on IRC.
- Interrupted by 'Elders' Cox and Other,
entertained them for a while;
- Amazed that they didn't
see through the old Which would you rather have,
scripture translated by scholars, or >hand
gesticulation here< a prophet of God!. That
it is Americans that come up with this sort of
disingenuous, ethnocentric twaddle is amusing.
- The fact that there are precisely
no coins from the culture of Moroni, is apparently to
test our faith.
- Apparently Joesph Smith was a sinful
prophet just like Moses - shame God didn't work mighty
miracles through him to let people know.
- Most interestingly, Cox was coloured,
and (shifty eyes) seemed to have no problem with the
paradoxical banning / un-banning of coloured priests -
another matter of faith, that there must have been a good
- Strangely Cox also looked away while
professing 'the burning feeling', poor chap, pacemaker
needs cranking perhaps.
- Anyway, gave them some water, and
somewhere to sit for a while, and perhaps something to
think about. When I've finished the Koran, I need to read
the book of Mormon; if only I had a decent plain textual
version (Arberry?) instead of Yusuf Ali's polemical
commentry. Indeed, Yusuf gets more of a say than the text.
- Back to work. Telsa thought we should have a
vote as to whether to include totem in Gnome: the totem
- Tried to help Yippi speed up vte, and James
posted a really well done GEP - which is great.
- J' cooked up a lovely meal from random
leftovers, how is that done ? then out to cell group at
Ryan and Nancy's.
- Pleasant, and challenging evening, particularly
from Ryan, talking about his brother's death recently.
- 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,
