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, J. lie in for a while, read to kids, skimmed
the Economist etc. J. down. Set to work (again) with the dish washer
this time with a bolder dis-assembly bent (lots of rather concerning
mild-steel crimps on many fragile rubber pipe). Isolated the
seizing of the main pump, and it's cause - somewhat stumped wrt.
- Bruce & Anne arrived for lunch, suggested shrinking the
thread a little, added cut-down screw pieces into the thread, and lo it
now tightens but doesn't jam: nice.
- Some fine braising steak for lunch. Painstakingly re-assembled
everything, apparently it now works again - and (seemingly) doesn't seem
the worse (leak-wise) for it's experience. Building quite a familiarity
with the inner workings of the beast by now: what we need is more
electro-mechanical appliances that can break.
- Played videos for the children: Post Man Pat, and Cinderella
on the wall while J. went out with B&A to a painting exhibition in
- Conference call in the evening, write-up, 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,
