Despite the eternal constant that no cards would arrive today, and despite also my usual anti-traditional and anti-capitalist stance around such festivals, still a day of hand-wringing uncertainty. Heard on the radio that St.Valentine is buried in the Gorbals! Much of the day spent compiling the fruits of last nights CVS raid, and finally Evolution is building quietly in the background. Listening to the mournful-sounding but incredibly uplifting A Silver Mount Zion record. The I.P.Knightley's are once again triumphant in the Brit Quiz.

Evolution and OpenLDAP are talking at last! Weirdly springlike weather cheers me a great deal. Spend a long time messing about with CVS last night trying to get myself up to date, along with a great deal of Napster activity, and some Open Source evangelism on ICQ. Still desperate for the new Low record. Maybe next Monday when I'm in Bristol seeing Occupational Health?

Officially a day off! Spent the morning lazing around and reading, and thinking about one or two Gtkdial ideas that may or may not get implemented this week. Tried out Pakora v2.0 - better! Later got sick of having a day off and finally managed to fiddle gnome-vfs 2.0 into building correctly (by virtue of CVS update of xml-i18n-tools). Evolution is building with LDAP support at last (problems were down to a dodgy openldap-devel package). A much more productive day than planned.

Finally got around to putting the gmailq-applet page up, and getting it onto the GNOME software map. Otherwise, an industrious day, which even involved some low-key DIY. I was of course not involved in using power tools!



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.
