In Nuremberg

I’ll be in Nuremberg next week and apparently I’m to work 80 hours or so in 5 days. I expect to lose all sanity and hope by the weekend. There are murmurs of an open network connection there, but I don’t think I’ll have a chance to do any wortwhile stuff with it.

I have a new toy – a copy of Ximian‘s Connector so the GNOME lists don’t have to suffer the hopeless Outlook-ness of my emails, but I won’t be able to try it out until the week after next. Outlook (well, actually the hopeless corporate Exchange setup) is one of the few reasons that we use Windows desktops in this department, so I’m looking forward to showing that it’s not necessary.

The other day as I was sitting in a doorway with my laptop using an open wi-fi, a small child asked me if I was homeless.
