The only half-serious 'weird october' stuff takes a turn for the serious. Still have the capacity to be shocked I suppose. First of a couple of 'birthday-avoidance' days off. Spent it wondering what on earth is happening to the world, and what I should do next? Finally got commit access to cvs.gnome.org, which is a bit of a landmark. Refused some Foundation Applications which lacked evidence of contribution. Felt slightly guilty, but I guess there is no room for this. Strange flurry of OU/T171 related mail asking for advice on the course. Answered honestly. Some concerns about returning to work on Monday, but there are more immediate tricky situations to confront I suppose.
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.
