Evolution Attachment Reminder.

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

I don’t believe it.
Evolution now has an “Attachment Reminder”. Note that KMail from the popular KDE desktop has such a function since ages. The GNOME crowd is now suddenly selling it as the best thing since sliced bread.
Go figure…

Home again

Yesterday evening, we wrapped up the BlueZ Developer Meeting with a nice dinner in the restaurant “L’artichaut” in downtown Montpellier. After that i returned to the hotel, since i unfurtunately had booked a very early flight at 7:00 in the morning, meaning that i needed to get up at 5:30. Oh well.
At the airport i found out that Brad Midgley was as crazy as me, since he was taking the same flight, a fact we only noticed in the checkin queue.
All in all the BlueZ meeting was a very nice event, i met most of the people who attended there for the first time and i actually look forward to the next meetings and hope to meet them all again there.
But for now, i just hope that my train home arrives soon, so i can finally start into the weekend.

Off to Montpellier!

Yesterday i traveled to Montpellier, France, to take part in the BlueZ Developers Conference, kindly sponsored by ACCESS. The travel was “interesting”, since while changing flights in Paris, Charles de Gaulle, suddenly half of the Terminal was evacuated, of course 5 minutes before i should have started boarding the plane.
Well, half an hour later, there was a loud “bang”, and shortly afterwards, everything was back to normal. Nobody knows what happened exactly, but somebody murmured something about “suspicious baggage”. Something similar happened when i traveled to FOSDEM this year, so why am i surprised…?
Oh well, i finally arrived.
The meeting is great, with lots of interesting people attending and pretty interesting topics, and all that in a great mediterranean surrounding, with great weather (29°C). What more can i wish for.
