Haven't really sorted myself out much here! I have however handed back a lot of the little projects I've gathered over the past few months in anticipation of having much less time to do them. RedHat 7.1 disks arrive from the Linux Emporium and rather than break everything with an upgrade I selectively raid the disks for nice things. This relatively pleasant activity keeps me occupied much of the day. My seamless switch of mobile phone networks has been thwarted by the delievery of almost everything except the handset!

After much hacking around, gratuitous symlinking, false starting and blind alley traversing, I managed to get gIDE to build! I don't think it's really usable as such, but after seeing Dirk Vangestel hacking on it during the flight from CPH I wanted it working. In other news, the Brit Quiz is cancelled due to quizmaster incapacity and low attendance. Reviewed Weston's new bars instead - I think red paint is cheap somewhere?

Really regret going out yesterday now, because I think I was an objectionable sod. Spent today trying to make gPuce happen - the viewer is done, and reads galleries from a nice, simple XML file. Will start on the editor next. Did tons of washing which I'd neglected. Since I have an unexpected extra week of not being at work, need to think about some 'sorting'.

The whole gPuce thing is growing - perhaps out of control? Anyway - spent some time messing with it this morning, have this concept of a lightweight distributed viewer, loading galleries from XML files, which are written with a little editor thing. Probably shouldn't have gone out later as I'm still feeling pretty crappy, and I don't think it helped. Nice to see real, live human beings for a change though.
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.
