Gissing's "The Emancipated" arrives - keeping the reading stack just about tall enough to sustain me until payday. Still finding things on eBay to augment it - which is really quite a bad thing considering the ever deteriorating financial position. Despite managing to avoid all but the most cursory interest in the World Cup, I watched the entire match today. Feeling somewhat 'tired and emotional' last night meant waking feeling groggy and really not getting started until late. Wandered bookshops and got coffee. Later, decided that gnome-about should surely display the version number from gnome-version.xml so set about hacking up a rather nasty little patch to do so. Filed in Bugzilla and waited for howls of derisive laughter. Some happy phonecalls today help a lot.



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.
