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
- Sat around in some seriously uncomfortable seats with
enterprising Indians trying to sell various 'drinks of death' to
me, talked to the nice Nun (or sister) a bit, waited for 9.45am.
- Applied to get on the earlier flight, 4.30am - got
the plane - whopee. Again a very modern plane, but this time we
had an on-board cockroach which was somewhat un-welcome. The pilot
confindant in his own ability, and the impossibility of allowing a
computer land his plane for him ( in fog ) diverted to some other
crackpot airport where we waited until we had missed the connecting
- Queued for hours with skill and fortuity, managed to
get back onto the flight I would have got anyway - excellent.
Bought some guinness at the Irish pub to celebrate. Got a free lunch
out of it too.
- ORBit hacking - discovered some particularly stupid
bugs in my code - trying to do too much too soon.
- 7 hour flight to Heathrow - and amazingly my luggage
arrived as well - got on-line and started processing mail.
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,
