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
After a depressing experience with the US Post Office
yesterday: amazingly they hand out tracking numbers which cannot
be used to track packages (at all): what staggering genius ! Their
web-page doesn't mention this though, and just points the finger at
the (blameless) vendor, claiming that they havn't given them the
pkg yet. Anyhow - today my RepRap electronics arrived, paid some
exhorbitant customs fee, requires some assembly tonight.
It seems Taras had some great success with the
code in gcc, which is encouraging - cool as the icegrind work is.
And glad to hear he is having the time and inclination to encourage
the world of kernel / linker readahead to improve - clearly the
patched openSUSE glibc which really helps there masked that
somewhat for me.
Lunch. Meeting wrt. evo express. Pleased to see Simon
on top-form as normal, discussing the UK election
Amused by David Cameron's advocacy, though I will most likely
vote Conservative, I was amused by the somewhat messianic An invitation to
join the government of Britain. The overlap between political
and religious themes is a fascinating one O'Shaughnessy interested
me in at Cambridge. I should really buy and read The idea of
political marketing - but for my ongoing failure to get enough
time away from the Economist to finish Dante.

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

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