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
- Small lie-in, off to NCC - Helen speaking, though
much of the time devoted to constructing egg holders from straws
and jelly-babies in teams; hmm.
- Back, babes to bed, tried to sleep. Up, played 'Shrek'
with H. (which apparently, mostly consists of discussing the plot
outline of the movie at length, then briefly running around the
- Watched Jonah with the kids; in the evening watched
(part) of 'Troy' - apparently (and unfortunately) it seems the
Amazon DVD rental scheme is in fact a ruse to get customers to
weed out defective DVDs. Of 3 DVDs thus far - the first worked
without problems, the subsequent 2 both had serious damage. When
you try all combinations of wiping, 2 different DVD drives, 2
different operating systems and it's still substantially un-playable,
it's clear there is a problem. A longer experience with Blockbuster,
while irritatingly placing 'Misty Mundae' and 'Muffy the Vampire
Slayer' amidst run-of-the-mill movies reveals that they manage not
to bulk-transport their media interleaved with sand-paper.
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,
