Well it's definitely been a fun couple of days in Sweden. Watched Hallski get married, went for a couple of short runs around the countryside, did a little bit of waterskiing [which was heaps of fun] and generally drank and ate some. The whole experience just gets me more motivated for getting things together in terms of a VISA for New Zealand - very much longing to find a healthier, sunnier life outside Ireland, if only for a short while.

Work on the whole has been much more exciting of late, having left most of the GU4DEC work behind, and moved onto Sun Linux GNOME. We're generally getting to do some fun things with the product, and learning heaps along the way. It's nice just to be a part of a team that has the freedom to design the future desktop.

Domhnall is apparently back in Ireland, having arrived just a day before I left for Sweden. Very much looking forward to seeing him once again, and wondering where he will go next. Apparently he is bearded. Not sure if I totally agree.
