Well, things seem to be a lot better today. I am feeling a lot happier and have even been thinking about doing some gb stuff again. It looks as though FOSDEM may turn out to be good fun, with some old friends hopefully turning up.

Had a really good birthday visiting friends in Newmarket, few beers, dinner etc. Had a good time - perhaps this has helped lift that veil of depression I have been under the last couple of months, lets hope so.

Life _was_ Shit.

Now its even Shitter!!

Still - Birthday tomorrow, another year older!

Heard back from Ravi today about the patch I sent him, he should be comitting that later on. Been looking at a bit more GB stuff again today hopefully I will have some more stuff done soon. Work has been a bit of a drag recently and it looks like we will be having the pre christmas rush again this year - I wonder why people seem to rush to get environmental analysis done by christmas.

Installed Evolution 1.0 a few days ago and have switched to use that as my main mailer now. It looks very nice and so far I have had no problems with it (except a few installation problems, caused I think by all the stale files left from earlier versions I had tried out). Another nice piece of software I have tried out recently is MrProject the project management software from codefactory. I love this software and think it is great :-)

It looks as though GUADEC3 will be in Seville next year in April and the UKUUG Linux developers conference in Bristol in July, although this is only tentative at the moment. I hope to attend both of these events same as this year.

Typically mindless day at work today, although I did start on a small project prioritiser in Visual Basic during my lunch break (not that I really have one, but still!!). Not much else happening at the moment.

A surprisingly good weekend for once. Got my application for membership of the Gnome Foundation accepted, which was good. Have also been doing quite a few things on combo boxes for gnome-basic, mainly stuff I have been looking at for a while but been unable to finish due to time constraints. I have a patch ready to send to Ravi as soon as my isp's mail server starts to work properly.

Also had a few ideas for software projects at work, although it looks like we will be getting very busy again soon which will most likely put a halt on any software related stuff for a bit.
