Strange forces at work - managed to paint myself into a corner defending GNOME 2.0 on IRC. Still feel myself justified - there is much bandwagon-jumping and Slashdot-style groundless complaining going on. Since I've used it daily, and watched bugs get squashed by the bucketload, I suppose I've become protective. Otherwise, pleased to see the weekend arriving but very much unclear what to do with it. Completely out of cash, so enviously browsed bookshop shelves. Brief but inspiring phonecall earlier.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
