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
To work; mildly amused by the Ubuntu hype-machine's success;
I read somewhere (with no hint of irony)
[Mark's] ... goal
is to push the Ubuntu GUI up to the level of Apple's ... It's possible that
sentiment has never been voiced in the history of GNU.
Strange, I thought I heard this aspiration regularly, throughout GNOME
development, and even by RMS
back in the day and wow, reading that controversy - I yearn for the
old days: "In short, I'm a huge believer in an open meritocracy that
encourages bottom-up development instead of forcing top-down "standards."
Like CDE." - there's still perhaps a lesson for OO.o there somewhere.
Claire came to visit from Coventry with baby Jared. Dead pleased
to hear her ask So what's a PC ? in relation to the recent Microsoft
advertising campaign - seems like they have a cliff-face of work ahead
there; perhaps a bring-back-Jerry campaign is in order. Lunch, discovered
not having rsync installed stopped me up-loading my blog for a while, doh.
Call with JP, poked at odd shell-scriptage around login, ugh.
Rather woozy with flu, some amusing fading in and out. Prodded MA about
our tennant. Read analyst reports.
Dinner with Sharon, Luke & Cassy, Claire & Jadon, and
our lot - fun. Put most of them to bed. Stayed up chatting happily to
Sharon by the fire.
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,
