Just realised that I was totally oblivious to yesterday's superstitious status! Lots of hacking around with things today, and something akin to a religious experience regarding libxml2 - its just so beautifully simple, I could cry! My return to work will be delayed by at least a further week it seems. Not really sure how I feel about this at all. Decided I need to switch to a cheaper Mobile Phone deal.

Well, yesterday's long concealed festivities went well - and despite MAFF continuing to ban hot-air balloon flights, things went perfectly to plan. Very, very hung over. There is evidence here for those to whom I promised pictures. The whole concept of distributing pictures got me thinking about my long abandoned gPuce image viewer. Spent much of the evening hacking on it, and think it may turn into a more serious project.

Practically caught up. Hyper, and not entirely in a positive way today. Feel like I'm already pissing people off left, right and centre. Patch accepted on GGv - happiness ensues. Worried more about credit and so on. Finally split up this page again, and played around with second assignment for T171.

Still catching up with people and the piles of e-mail which have arrived in my absence. Spent some time looking at the sorry state of my own code before deciding to look at Bugzilla to see if my time was better spent elsewhere. Hacked on GGv for a bit, and fixed a personally annoying and extremely simple bug. Tentatively submitted a .diff. Wondered about laptops and credit agreements etc., and somehow this seems to link into the decisions which need to be made work-wise, and soon.



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.
