Todays blog comes to you from the small toilet. I am sat on the throne with my iPaq 5450, reading advogato, planet GNOME and some other news sites using the Minimo browser, doing some shell work on a remote computer using rxvt and ssh, and composing this on what appears to be a cut-down version of gedit (gpe-edit). All good!

I ended up losing my patience a little with Ali. He just can't help himself. I figure the 'reply all' button on his mail client must be getting as worn out as people are fed up of listening to his rants. I filed a kind of counter-complaint about his behaviour, and I think (hope) he got the message. I don't feel good about the whole episode, but I feel I have done what many people may not have had the front to do, and hopefully we can all now get a little piece without his constant wind-me-ups.

I also managed to break the GNOME mailman mhonarc mail archiving a little bit, and struggled yesterday to identify the problem. My understanding of the whole setup is now much better, and a few seconds ago I think I figured what I'd cocked up, and it's all working again now. Now to see if I can fix up the namazu indexes and get the search facility working again.

Mee seems to be getting a little fed up because I haven't had much time for her with all this drama going on. Luckily we've got a busy weekend of social activities, so she should cheer up. Her English is getting rapidly better though.
