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; packed babes off to school. Mike kindly took me
to TEAM again; more Bible Overview goodness on the Law, then onto
Revelation, and finally some interesting talk prep pieces.
Appalled by the ham-fisted approach to Wikileaks advocated
by Sarah Palin (hunt him down like [sic.] Osama Bin Laden), and Mike
Huckabee - who seems both to have discovered that a (non-US national)
can commit treason
against a country not his own. Huckabee should have more sense - as a
minister, the death penalty, if permissible at all (and there are many
practical problems with it), should surely be confined to first degree
murder. Perhaps the more worrying thing is that (despite appearances)
I don't believe either of these guys are idiots - ie. that they must
speak for a very size-able proportion of the (highly polarised) North
American constituency - what saddens and interests me is that, often,
they speak for the people who have the most irrational (to my mind)
fear and distrust of their own government / Beast. So - why, when
that same government has egg on its face - are they rushing to prop
it up so, with such ridiculous rhetoric ? my suspicion: raw national
pride - the death penalty for attracting some reflected silliness to
the wider USA.
Home, and out to the smaller children's christmas play; great
execution: singing, wandering on and off stage etc. message-wise a
travesty of Norman Vincent Peale proportions.
Back home, and to work - checked out the new LibreOffice
bootstrap / build system, fixed a few issues, and left it building.

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