hmm, ok so up until Thursday I was having an ueventful week. I had been casually looking for work to replace my NTL job, then suddenly the agency that put me in NTL and who I haven't heard from since November, contacted me at work. I have been told I start a new job on Monday doing embedded C. What can I say, I'm stunned, after all I've been trying to break into C programing jobs for a while. More news will be posted on Monday when I know exactly what I'm doing.

With regards Linux related stuff I haven't done all that much this week, what with work etc. I've mainly been trying to get Gnome2 working after giving up on compiling from source I have been trying the vicious build scripts but they seem to have been failing at the glib compile. I'll look into it when I have more time.

The only down side of this week, well next week really, is that my new job means that I doubt I'll get to Swansea for Alan Cox and Dick Porter's talk. Still I guees I'll catch up with a few people later at the SWLUG meet.
