Not the best sleep last night, and an early-ish start.. My building holiday is over, and I'm currently trying to get new bonobo, gnome-vfs, gal and evolution's built! Load averages are spiralling, naturally. Busy but successful morning, and more time to brush up my maths and investigate possible educational opportunities

A day off trying to build anything. Spent a lot of time poring over TAOCP, and making some progress. Considering that I'm not a skilled mathematician, this is encouraging if slow progress for me. Conceptually at least, the fog is clearing. Nice dinner. Tomorrow is shaping up to be a really busy day all in all.

Started busily (and earlier than of late, thanks to fine weather) with a bus ride down to the sorting office again! Later, attempted to cook my own version of Pakora. Not unpleasant, but needs work I think. Finally reading Knuth Vol 1, which is fascinating but easily the single most challenging book I have ever attempted to study. News of a rare UK Steven Wright show which I'm unlikely to get to sparks me off on a peak-time MP3 download marathon.

Very sleepy, but happy today. Evolution built overnight and so far seems to work a treat. New GIMP packages arrive via Ximian. Caught up on mail backlog and downloaded literally tearjerking Beachwood Sparks MP3s. Going to sleep now....



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.
