This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
SUSE 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; mail chew, dead pleased to discover that the yast2-gtk
bugs I've been fretting about for ages have already been fixed by Federico;
nice. Tried to get VirtualBox running - what excuse for a custom kernel
module is there in the days of KVM ? horribly annoying; tried to re-build
the spec. for the latest stable kernel - failure; yuck - what a waste of
time. Why is it that I can use KVM without a hassle, but then the VM / disk
images are in some uselessly non-exchangeable format ?
Dug at misc. patches, a CUPS issue; mail. Out for lunch with J.
Eventually got a VM setup, now to trying to make GNOME behave well
inside it; first fallback mode - rendering needs to be fast; eventually
found the gnome-tweak-tool button to persuade nautilus to render the
desktop, so I can drop a single, nice big "click here" icon launcher
on the desktop; phew.
Out for lunch with J. in Bury - looked for a better office chair.
Fixed a libcanberra issue, and re-visited the osc branch / sr magic
with DimStar's kind help. Worked late. Started reading C. Peter Wagner on
Spiritual Warfare - substantially unconvinced at his take.

In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of SUSE, Novell, The

It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences
