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, entertained babes as J. slept; off to NCC -
Thea spoke on faith and courage. Back for a fine lamb lunch.
Tidied the house up, and re-washed up the bits the dish-washer
failed to clean; bother.
Set too at making a set of supports for a bathroom
shower rail - consumed another junior hack-saw blade cutting the
thick brass-covered steel pipe - of course, a modern rail would
be constructed of chromed fluff and be easier. Set too with the
router making a curious contour to allow the rail to be inserted
and freed at one end; after much work, discovered that the depth
gague was rather misleading, and the wooden back is sufficiently
thin (~1mm) that you can see through it - bother. Curtain designed
for a bath, so not long enough - urgh.
Plugged away at the problem of the airing cupboard shelving,
a shortage of suitable wood. Considered the joys of planeing an
excessive amount of wet-wood briefly, before cutting down some 4x2s
into 2x2s using the hand-held circular saw: which went
extraordinarily better than I had imagined possible - a pleasing
result. H. and N. helped file / sand all the cut ends into shape,
and finally we have two of three shelves: great.
Put babes to bed, re-arranged downstairs. Watched Pirates
of the Carribbean with Martin, Andy, Dave, John and Chris - highly
amused by Andy's joke (after this feast of CGI craziness) - Was
that based on a true story ?. 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,
