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 lateish, messed around trying to pack,
quick breakfast and set off for Newbury. Listened to
Radio 4, and the .
- Managed to go around Newbury via a rather
circuitous route, got confused by the Robin Hood
roundabout, eventually found David's home.
- David came out to meet us, made us tea,
sat around and caught up slightly with where things
are. Examined his charming albeit small terrace.
- Then out for a walk across to Greenham Common
(luckily the Green and Common Women are not there
- Met Andrew on the way up, wandered along
the vast, (Europe's largest ex. runway) flat area,
sadly (to my mind) the tarmac / concrete has all been
eaten up. Also the 8 million gallon strategic reserve
of aviation fuel (in pits) has gone too.
- Most intrigued by several massive bunkers
burried under large earth humps - sadly with three
successive fences guarding them. It turns out they
were used to house the tactical cruise missile launch
- Back home for tea and toast. Then out to
the local Harvester (Ne. Robin Hood) for a hefty
dinner and conversation.
- Back, for HIGNWY and, after examining
David's neat roof space, to his bed - extremely
good of him to take the floor for us.
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,
