Spent the last week mostly doing that. Other stuff too, I suppose- wine tastings at the vineyards, beach, lots of food, chilling with Krissa’s family, etc., but mostly reading:
- Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. Interesting read on pseudo-rebels of a different time.
- first book of the Hyperion pair. Plowed through the whole thing on the flight back. Also, found the second one (on hp’s recommendation) at a great used bookstore in SLO. Will probably tackle that in the next day or two, possibly after my desk is clean.
- the bizarre Steampunk Trilogy. Conforms to all ‘steampunk’ I’ve ever read in that the ideas are great and the execution crap.
- Pattern Recognition, which was really enjoyable.
All in all, thoroughly enjoyed the week. More pictures in the gallery.
Am now fighting off a nasty cold- have pretty much spent all day non-functional. Hopefully will recover soon.
Sven, Rodrigo, many others: it would be great if you guys could write (collaborate on?) docs (maybe at live.gnome.org?) on ‘how to get a local gnome group started.’ I have a feeling lots of mistakes have been repeated here :)
Cool links of the day:
