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, dealt with the babes while J. slept. Off to
the market to stock up on fruit & veg. Back home via an
ill-advised trip to the playground (in the snow), E. bleating
about her freezing hands (which she insists on removing from
the snug peram's sleeping-bag.
Back; set to disassembling the packed-in Jig-saw.
Discovered that 'Erbauer' is in fact a pseudo-germanic name
for Screw-Fix's ultra-cheap tool range - built for hobbiests
and obsolesence. Unfortunately, the machine is defunct. Extremely
pleased by the ease of disassembly with electric screwdriver
(wonder christmas present from the Hawkins): marvelous.
Eventually got the switch apart, and discovered it was some
charring and bending on the contacts - re-assembled admiring
the simple mechanism smeared in black grease. Overall a lovely
device let down by a shoddy switch - shame.
Quick lunch; Nick & Joni popped over to collect the
long lost fleece. Packed innumerable (but never quite enough)
tools into the car, and set off to Solomon & Peace's house.
Removed their rotting pine block-board work-surface around the
sink. Spent ages cutting and working the teak, returning home
for more tools periodically. Bruce had done a wonderful job of
making angle-iron brackets for everything, making the task
rather easy. Re-sealed everything with mould-resistant silicon
sealer; with luck it might survive.
Back, read stories to babes, bed very early to write
