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
Prodded at mail. Rethink Wireless have been spamming me for
some considerable time, but I got hooked somehow on reading their
updates. Of course, I know nothing about the handset market, but it
is sad to see Nokia
taking a beating. It remains incredible to me that the huge opportunity
presented by the N900 -
was abandoned in favour of non-user-visible tech warfare. Time to
market ? or are the times changing ?
Poked at jhbuild, time to have a real, full GNOME environment
building instead of working with patches everywhere I suspect. Worked
with Joey on image bugs.
Lunch; booked hotel for OSCON. Boggled at Sam Varghese's latest
trolling - refreshingly of Network Manager; apparently manually editing
a text file is how all right thinking people should setup networking;
and everything else (eg. point and click to select a wifi network, DHCP
as default for network address selection) is "high grade bull ... will
drive people away ... voodoo world of Windows". Re-assuring that my
tenouous grip on the real world (amongst the source files) is stronger
than some others'. Perhaps a
better article title would be: "I watched the world cup instead of
thinking about what to write, so now I have to generate three pages of
mindless drivel that will get lots of hits ... what could it be ?".
Printed out some nice plastic pieces in the evening; slicer
seems to be doing its job at least - a reliable extruder is really key
in getting a robust shape it seems, far more so than the internal
fill spacing. Out to Cell group to distribute leaflets for church on
the park on Sunday. Back early to watch DVD with Lydia & J.
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,
