The end of a tiring but pretty amazing weekend really. Spent much of the afternoon, evening and early morning downloading most of Gnome 1.4 Beta 1. All installed and working nicely - including the beautiful looking (but a little sluggish, or perhaps that's me at 3am?) Nautilus. Other highlights include much improved launch feedback via xalf, some gtk+ niceness which prevents menus from disappearing from under you when leaping diagonally, and "stacking" of related windows in the tasklist_applet. Evolution working nicely (including the calendar, briefly!). Need to sleep now.
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.
