it's been an interesting coupla weeks. first apachecon here
in london. excellent, really good to spend some time with
people who are interested in all the good things and to get
away from all the negativity here at work. a lot of good
stuff, particularly gstein's talk on dav
and mod_dav. i'm expecting the momentum to build behind it
over the next
year or so, there is so much potential in it. having
worked with it a little for a staging server in the last few
months i thought i had it sussed, but greg suggested all
sorts of possibilities i had never concidered. the subversion
work looks particularly
interesting. i still think
level support would be very good for it, saving the need to
build support directly into applications. IE5 goes some of
the way, but stops short. it's going to be interesting to
see if nautilus adopts any of it.
i was in Cannes at the beginning of this week for an other
conference, this time on Vignette's V5 (content management
system). couldn't have been more different from apachecon.
very different people, motives, location. still not sure of
company as a whole, though it's looking more and more likely
that they are the only ones who can provide what we need,
short of getting a large number of people in to do a custom
system. of course the latter would be more fun, but
unfortunately i'm not making the decisions.
off to france again tomorrow morning, though purley leisure
this time, seeing S's parents. bought some very foul
smelling cheese from the covent garden dairy for them.
fantastic place if you ever get the chance.
still to hear anything about the job. agencies are scum.
they don't care. i hate them all.
a good mate left our wonderful organisation today. damn fine
guy, shame to have lost him. here's to you, and thanks for
the root account ;)
listening to spinner a
lot recently. pretty impressed. saves having to either
bring in a bunch of cds or mess about with mp3s. also
exposing me to a load of new music which i otherwise never
get. just found out fatboy slim is releasing a new album
shortly, bliss :)
going home now.
