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

Waiting for www.openoffice.org... is becoming a personal motto.
Why invest a few thousand dollars in robust & well maintained

- Lunch; re-worked column, conference call. Re-worked the
quickstarter to add 'base' - unfortunately via an acutely ugly method,
since the previous person hadn't cleaned up after themselves; filed a
better method up-stream. Worked on the thinner startup / splash /

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,
