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 the crack of dawn, briefed by Jan Kara (game-master)
and set off, first stop Kendy (surprisingly reasonable artist) with
various directions to give. Followed a succession of wanderings in
the forest for many hours, up and down hills and up and down again,
with a dragon, a fortune-teller, a herbalist, Lubos as a (mad?) Mage,
etc. until Lunch - still apparently none the wiser.
- Fine lunch, with disasterous wrong turn from the market
square, cunningly avoiding most of the people to get artefacts &
advice from. Eventually ended up at the beautiful castle; in time to
play games for money with Kendy, Lubos etc. admired the fine castle,
went on a tour of it (excellent view & tour guide). On to another
view with an Astrologer.
- Back to the camp, via another unfortunate detour, lost
again but headed in the right direction. Caught up on FUSE, how
the VM works (& some processor / TLB fun), the RAID subsystem
& opportunities there etc.
- Eventually arrived in the darkness (with wonderful
views of the stars) at the camp-site. Another fine meal (the feast
of SuSuSu). Ralf's group had managed to find the tune on the back
of the Lizard Stone, cue fine fireworks, etc.
- Sat around the camp fire, talked with Duncan MV, got to
know Greg & Kay rather better: good fun. Stayed up exceedingly
late, the evening eventually turned into a sing-along, with Kendy
on guitar, Ralf on the recorder, many singing songs Czech, German
& English. Attempted a few Hymns secular & modern myself,
much fun. Bed at 4am or so.
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,
