Exams all done, for better or worse. Not totally confident about K259, but think I've at worst just passed K260. Slept really well for the first time in months!

So Friday 13th was reasonably unlucky (nothing like the one in 1983, but not far off!). Spent much of this morning doing some updating. New glibc from RedHat, and at last the Helix Gnome RPMs for RedHat 7 are about (they're here in fact. Otherwise, these remain strange times around here. Some recognition of the rarity of my Will Self page too, including some new Will-related links.

New arrival at GNEHQ - a truly minute little kitten, which now goes by the name GdkPixbuf (hey - it could have been libGnorba!). "Pix", as it will be known (and right now it is an 'it'!), seems to be content. Otherwise, exactly zero exam preparation - but the day off work tomorrow is welcome.

First exam now less than two days away - encouraged to see it as a day off work if nothing else. Got the new Godspeed You Black Emperor double-CD but yet to hear it all. Managed to build my first ever RPM package after much fiddling - (its here).



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.
