Discovered a ridiculous and fatal bug in gmailq-applet 0.2.0 which renders it utterly useless! Fixed it, and therefore I present version 0.2.1 (RH7/RH6/tar.gz). Otherwise optimism returns - it always amazes me people have faith in me, but its definately a "good thing". Messed about with Ogg Vorbis just for fun, but found it at least equal to MP3 in all respects. Otherwise, Evolution is again building happily in the background now that the glibc 2.1/2.2 treatment of fpos_t as a struct has been resolved.

Well, yesterday was incredibly busy as predicted - but actually went OK. Left Evolution building overnight and woke up to a functional build including GPG support! There are some problems in the Etable which displays mail, but I can live with them until gal finally builds. Feel better, after what's actually been a bit of a hectic and worrying week, and a bit of a quiet and dull fortnight.

Aaargh! This morning there were too many arguments to gal_define_views_dialog_new() and this evening there are too few! Too insanely busy and preoccupied to write more. I want Evolution back....

Despite the splash screen, Evolution != 0.9 just yet...the latest build looks and feels quick and smooth to use, but unfortunately eats mbox files. Later attempts to build completely fail - remember - this is fun. IP Knightley's win the quiz once again, two rounds out of three. Vaguely apprehensive about a busy and confusing day tomorrow.



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.
