It had to happen. I've reverted to my age-old habit of attempting to build Evolution from CVS.

I used to do this a few years back, but things are much different - firstly, not having to update bonobo, GConf and a bunch of other dependencies over a dial-up line every time I build is a wonderful improvement. Secondly, I'm struck how the GNOME ethic of keeping things buildable has made life so much less frustrating - even though Evolution is outside the core desktop, its dependency on libraries which are almost guaranteed to build means it benefits from this initiative.

All I have to do now is persuade it to work...



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.
