Hmm...the cat is still nowhere to be seen, which is starting to cause me a great deal of concern. Couldn't really settle into things today, so played with Glade a bit, resulting in a bit of a rethink on the GUI for the Gtkdial editor. Later, made and distributed posters regarding wayward feline. Decided to start an Advogato entry, because it seemed like a good idea....its here.

Pretty busy day. Searched for the cat, who now appears to be very much missing in action. Went to Newport, had breakfast, wandered around bookshop and shoe-modification-accessory emporia. Monster headache, compounded by cat situation. Set Evolution building after some minor updating via RedCarpet. Brit Quiz - I.P.Knightley again win, and donate the wine - this being a benefit night for Balancing Energy!

An industrious and productive day. Finally persuaded ./configure to check for wvdial in the Gtkdial build process. Fixed some minor 0.3 bugs, installed the latest translations, and I think I'm about to package up a development release. Also learned a bit about consolehelper which will prevent lusers from playing with the new (and still immensely broken) editor component. Finally got Evolution built, after a nightmare trying to compile OpenLDAP 2.0.7.

After a weird few days where I've been strangely preoccupied with stuff I can't possibly change (possibly work-situation-related/post Principia startup blues?), feeling much better. Over to Burnham this morning, since the buses are sorted out - got some amazing views from Bleadon Hill on the way. Also writing code again for the first time in a while. Started work in earnest on the wvdial configuration editor for Gtkdial 0.3.x. This involved some relatively painful reminders about doubly-linked lists, and has resulted in some of the most appallingly obfuscated code I've ever written - still, the concept is solid!



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.
