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 at 5.45am, drove to La Rochelle, managed (eventually)
to locate Sixt (in the town centre), Ryanair - flight on-time, taxi
home, 10minute turn-around, checked E-mail, printed E-ticket, changed,
back in taxi to Heathrow.
- Checked in, BA delayed the flight for 2:15 without an
adequate explanation (of any sort). Of course, given their (alledged)
general standard of safety & maintenance it's better not to risk
sudden death anymore than normal with them. Unfortunately my Washington
connection was 1:30, next flight to SF. would miss 4 of the 8hrs of
the meeting; abandoned hope & the flight.
- Still some open questions - is there a quality airline that
actually get you there on time (and if not actually tell you why / at
least pretend to care) ? Notably Ryanair managed to do ok. The
Heathrow Express (also delayed) advert showed BMI as the #1 for
reliability. The things people do for the love of Novell.
- Back home, very late, 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,
