Safe as Milk - Fri, 01/02/2008 - 8:07am

I crashed my laptop hard (while standing in front of a room full of people awaiting my presentation, ew) when plugged into a projector and clicking Fn-F8 -CRT/LCD) a few times.

MySQL acquisition by Sun

Safe as Milk - Thu, 17/01/2008 - 3:47pm

First, congratulations to Sun and MySQL on this surprising marriage! I hope that you live happily ever after.

One comment - I’ve been reading some of the press and interviews around the takeover news - you know the kind of thing, “What does this mean for MySQL?” There’s a lot of “we’re delighted, this will allow MySQL to continue to grow, synergy, reinforce our enterprise offering, etc, etc”.

Next up…

Following on from my previous post, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what comes next professionally for me.

For the first time since I arrived in France, I have no full-time job. But this time, I know the lay of the land, I have 5 years experience extra, in varying roles (including the GNOME Foundation). I have never felt so free to explore projects that I want to work on, and think of different ways to make a living.

Facebook spam

Twice this morning…

OMG this is amazing…. ever wanted to know who looks at your profile the most? to find out all you have to do is re post this to everyone on your friends list then press alt+f4 together then it should re-direct you to a status screen where it shows

For those who don’t know what Alt-F4 does, don’t do it. I think this has clinched it - the Funwall has to go, and it’s another nail in Facebook’s coffin.

Breaking my silence

Safe as Milk - Mon, 14/01/2008 - 11:29am

For the past few weeks (actually, the past couple of months) I’ve been holding my tongue waiting for things to clear up a bit in relation to work. I now have a pretty good idea of where I’m at, and so the time has come to break silence and reveal all.

Clinton ‘08 = Muskie ‘72?

Safe as Milk - Tue, 08/01/2008 - 11:19am

History is repeating itself: Democratic candidates leading early polls have had a history of blowing up in the primaries - Dean in ‘04, Gary Hart in ‘88, Ted Kennedy, then Ed Muskie in ‘72 (coincidentally, the Dolphins were undefeated that season, like the Patriots this year).

Hillary is heading towards being one more in a long line of early front runners, burning bright and then fading away at the polling booth.
