This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
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. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Up early, family worship, sermon on Daniel 3,
pizza lunch. H's friends over in the evening at
Drilled a hole in tarmac & hardcore with Pete's
diamond core, cut up a scaffold pole & set it into the
ground with resin from Mark; great to see M&M's
Toiled away at slideware on & off:
Helped E. with her maths revision & homework,
and H. with her Oxford test preparation. Bed, tired.
Mail chew; admin - worked away at historic slideware,
lots of digging through old blogs.
Took babes to school, poked slides, gave keynote at the
/ LibreOffice conference.
Pleased to see lots of good talks left & right.
Mail chew; plugged away at slides, board call,
board+MC+team call with an interesting new discussion
tool. Lots of resin mixed with small gravel put down
opposite, in the rain.
New home broken into in the night; jemmy marks around the
back french windows, chop-saw & stand stolen - otherwise
apparently nothing gone; sad. CSI arrived at 10am to investigate,
ordered security-cameras, screwed up the back-door, got back
Planning call. Several tons of stones & resin arrived
with the wrong size fork-lift, and couldn't be put into place.
Mark arrived with a lift to help fix that, helped him a little.
Plugged away at slideware, out to take H. to and back
from Scouts, noticed the security fencing was off its hinge
opposite, assumed the skip people had undone it & mended it.
Played with H. at All Saints communion service; Susan's first
communion, Bob preached on sheep. Home for a fine pork lunch.
Lynn & girls over in the afternoon, relaxed variously.
Cleared the garage out to make room for resin & gravel
with J. Put up H's bloc blackout blind, ordered some more.
Various bits of statistics / maths with M. - had a virtual
birthday party for G'ma with wider extended family in the afternoon.
Mail chew, more PM / ranking and customer input crunching to
weight our next round of Online investment. TDF Board call.
Packed glass-wool insulation into a very small utility
room attic void with J's help.
Helped unload some oak boarding; mail chew,
sync with Eloy, Product Mgmt / planning, catch up
Ferried H. and M. to in-person music lessons.
Really pleased to see Muhammet's first Community
Roundup of week one of our move.
Mail chew; plugged away at requirement bits, dug at
some text / stats with Muhammet.
Mail chew, admin, sync with Cor. Started reviewing customer
and community feedback for roadmap planning. Partner call.
Electrician arrived - promptly putting a screw through a
hole I'd marked 'GAS' - and crossed out with sharpie; hey ho.
Got the A/C commissioned in the end, odd to see your
condensing indoors unexpectedly.
Planning call at some length; chewed through a mass of
E-mail; sync with Eloy. More wiring late at night.
Slept in at length; answered a few questions at the
Nextcloud conference, see the video
or the PDF slides:
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but how can
the Hybrid-PDF of the slide-deck be larger than the video
recording of the talk ? interesting.
Worship & sermon together; a fine pizza lunch,
slugged variously with babes & the lovely wife.
Up early, cut in boxes, fitted more sockets, out for
a run with J. David over to help. E's night in the babes
cooking competition - chicken cornflakes & pavolova - yum.
