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
Cambridge Paper arrived today. 2007 being the 200th aniversary
of the abolition of the slave trade by the British Parliament. The
campaign being spearheaded by devout Christians: faith and works
together. A great dissection of the mind of the abolitionists, and
the fight to affirm equality for African slaves.
"Every reader of Scripture should know, wrote [William] Cowper
That souls have no discriminating hue,
Alike important in their Maker's view;
That none are free from blemish since the fall,
And love divine has paid one price for all."
- Drove to Brighton, popped in to pick up Thomas,
meet Alison etc. on to the UKUUG conference - good to meet a
lot of familiar faces; although attendance down this year.
- Did a reasonable OO.o talk - more enthusiastic
this time. Some Xgl demos - found a use for the water effect:
highlighting things in presentations; poked at various bugs
that people have/had - seemingly the image / re-enterancy
problem bites all components.
- Picked up Thomas' stuff, drove home, bed.
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,
