another long gap between postings - mmm, not sure why that is - I think I just forget about things that don't remind me everyday - does that make sense? probably not!

gnome is looking pretty good atm, well I think it is. It's a funny one, I prefere it to MS anyday but there is much less to play with in Sun's gnome. Maybe that's a better way to have it - makes for a more productive environment - I remember the last job (windows house) where about 70% of time was spend writing docs, test specs, test plans, methodologies etc - how bloody boring was that. Get rid of that damn MS Word and get on with the job!!! No wonder the blody company went under - imagine having a revolutionary new technology with a large guaranteed market including lengthy maintenance contracts yet the company goes under!!! How's that for crappy management - yes Mr. Declan Kavanagh, I think you suck ass!!!!!

Oh yea, looks very like yours truly will be one of a number representing ireland at the World Alpine Ski Champs in St. Moritz in Switzerland - jaysus I need to get bigger faster..............!

I haven't been very productive today - dunno why but i'm not very focused today. spent most of the day playing around with installing gnome - I should be concentrating on one build and getting stuck in. Well maybe I will now.

I started doing asp last week - yea, yea its microsoft - so what, I don't care cause it's interesting and pretty easy so far. I suppose it'll get more complex when we're doing db work with asp. Also started learning javascript - ok, ok so I should probably have done this ages ago - well I didn't.... but I am now - all part of my grand scheme to become a jack of all trades but master of none and thus hopefully become a more rounded test analyst - sound warped - well maybe it is but I wanna know something about everything - just enough to allow me to learn more if necessary.

finally, got some picture sent over from scotland of the scottish ski champs - oh sick do I feel right now.... VERY!!!!! Lovely sunny skys and white snowy mountains - great pics - wish I was back there now!

I hate the summer - roll on winter!

Boo! It's been a couple of weeks - pure laziness I tell ya. Gnome got a bit hectic there for a wihile with the varying different releases - a bit quieter now which is cool - gives me some time to learn some javascript. As well as that I'm doing some asp stuff too.... sssshhhh, can't talk about micro....... sssshhhhh.

So not much on 'part from that but i really, really, really miss getting up in the morning and going skiing..... boohoo - i'm even dreaming of powder days.......

crappy day today - rain mixed with sun - i hate that. one or the other then at least you know what to expect. physio as well today who told me i have a possible ruptured PCL - fantastic. and to top it all off i'm gonna be a loner on gnome test next week cuz the others are on holiers.......! well - time to get off me ass and head for the hills - cccccccccccccccccc'ya

Dear diary... hehe - it's been while now. More thanks to my dumbass memory than anything else. Been quite busy over the last few months - lots happening on gnome, and some smaller spin-offs for me to do - abi & terminal performance - so its been busy, busy, busy. And solaris intel - poxy, poxy solaris intel..... i actually spent a whole saturday installing different build of gnome on intel and none of them really worked. Of course can I reporduce on later builds - f**k no!! But then lots more problems appear that will probably disappear in more later builds...... heh - suppose this is what makes it all interesting............
