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 early, off to TP to buy some hardboard with H. while J.
went into town shopping with N. watched the fork-lift truck with large,
round eyes for a while. Sawed several 8x4 sheets into twice as many 8x2,
loaded on the car & home.
- Babes to bed, nailed up the board, hard-side out in the crawl
space, reducing the howling gale in there to a zephyr; nice - hopefully
warm the house a little.
- Lunch - onto the dish-washer: like a petulant child it only
works when given lots of attention. This time removed the bottom, analysed
the parts: a beautiful mechanism. Discovered that the 'overflow' mechanism
works by deluging the pump motor itself in water, filling a depression in
the bottom - which causes a piece of polystyrene to float which presses a
switch; thankfully not the problem. Poked at the (interesting) pressure
switch - attempted to re-calibrate, but everything working again, sigh.
Perhaps it not being level causes the float switch not to fully empty,
which makes it vulnerable to changes in atmospheric pressure.
- Worked on talk in the evening.
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,
