Kernel 2.2.18 arrives, with USB built in. Compiled and installed without incident. In fact, it seems to have mysteriously resolved some of the load average concerns I had. A new Evolution looms, and has a fearsome list of dependencies. The I.P.Knightley (Second XI) finally delivers on its promise, winning two out of three rounds, the overall Brit Quiz, and the bonus round! Listening obsessively to a selection of live tapes from Luigi.

Another Gtkdial sneaks into the world, and much work is done on the next one too - including my investigation of GnomePropertyBox and some digging about in the GNOME source code to discover how to read back the value of a GtkClock (clue: there is a stopped member of the GtkClock struct).. Otherwise, a quiet day and a long sleep-in!

More messing with Gtkdial, mainly in an attempt to get autoconf etc. to do its stuff. Later had an unplanned dinner at Mai Thai in Weston - amazing food, definitely the best in Weston.

Hmm...lots of entries this month reflects the general lack of pressure at GNEHQ. Played with wine (which isn't a windows emulator), but the sight of those made-in-Redmond style dialogs on the screen sent a shudder down my spine - rpm -e time! More work done on the next Gtkdial, with the valuable assistance of the new book. The Welsman Massive venture down to Weston. My latest job application would make my career path practically circular!
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.
