Built GNOME from CVS, as I do less often nowadays. This is 2.5.90, and I have to say its one of those releases where you think "yes - this is great". Lots of tiny annoyances seem to have been ironed out, and things are 'just working'. Recent further improvements to the GTK+ filechooser are welcome too.
I think GNOME 2.6 is going to be one of those releases that I urge non-GNOME people to try out.
I'm also really beginning to wonder how I lived without Muine. I'm a bit conservative when it comes to music players, and whilst I see the value of things like Rhythmbox I really just want a little box which lists all my songs, and lets me play them in the order of my choice. Muine does this in a very simple, rather neat way. The album cover grabbing thing is also nice!
Since the link above is currently out of action, I'll add a little screenshot of my own:
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.
