My knee hurts. It would probably be more comfortable if it had some skin on it…

Whilst not being able to do much because of my knee, and in the calm of the post Christmas Mikal, I have been able to get a fair bit done, which is good. I have put out a new version of the comp.text.pdf FAQ document, I have worked on the groff2db converter, and I have done the clothes washing…

Felt like some geek movieage, so watched Enemy of the State again…

Finally started not feeling sick again… My stomache is still doing pyrotechnics at the moment though, so I am not getting too much done. Hopefully Catherine wont get this sickness off me — I don’t want to make her or the baby ill.

Managed to find the energy to have a look at groff2db for Greg again… He has sent a list of bugs that he wants looked at. I will try to get onto them sometime soon. I am also very aware that I need to get going with the comp.text.pdf FAQ. I had a brainwave though (the rainwaves are what slows it down), and the next version will be in a PDF. The PDF will come from docbook SGML, which will make it easy to target at a variety of different outputs later on if the mood comes upon me…

Anyway, I think I might have a lie down now.

I have been sick for the last couple of days, which has been a bit of a downer. It has also meant that I have got very little work done.

On the baby front, it would appear that Eric the Feotus has dropped, which I am told means that Catherine is about 4 weeks away from giving birth. This means that the baby would appear mid January, which is good because I don’t want a Christmas baby. It still means that we have to get the baby through the local summer without it melting though…

There’s been a lot of pressure at work to produce the next version of TRIM at something approaching on time. This has meant that I haven’t had much time for open source recently… When I haven’t been working I have been sleeping and getting ready for Catherine to have a baby.

There should be more time once the baby is born, but apparently those are famous last words… I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

This diary is one year old today. I should try to get back into making more regular entries… I am working on putting some photos up as things get more interesting again.
