Last night I dreamed that I was in a meeting which never ended. We kept telling the presenter that they were not telling us anything relevant or interesting, and they kept nodding and continuing. Then I woke up and spent all day in meetings. Coincidence? Actually, today’s meetings were really pretty good- lots of traction on important issues, which was great.

As a side note, we had a discussion about translation as one of the meetings today. In demonstrating that GNOME’s translations are quite comprehensive, I ended up running GNOME in Spanish and Charlie, Ximian’s head of marketing, in French. He was pretty impressed with the French, and I so far have only gnome-blog untranslated into Spanish. Big thanks to everyone on the translation teams who helped me impress people with that today :)

Oh, and Ross, the groupwise (novell mailserver/client) guys were like ‘we’d really like to implement a quick ability to search on the addressbook’. It was nice to be able to say ‘oh, no worries, someone implemented that already.’ :)

BTW, does anyone know if someone has re-implemented/similarly-implemented the Google Deskbar as a panel applet? Someone brought it up today as something they missed from Windows, and it would be cool to drop them an email.
