This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- Tension mounts, I7 digital filters tommorow AM. Ave morituri te
salutant, alea iacta est et cetera.
- Remembered that Miguel helped me when my HDD packed up last year
just before exams, reached the realisation that the powers that be want me to
revise before exams and then kindly bail me out afterwards; amazing, or
- Realised the title causes the windows caption to be 'Stuff Michael'
on my log; hmm.
- Discovered pretty routine for trashing Excel; enter 1.0 into cells
A1 and IV65536. Select range A2:A65535 and click bold ( 5 secs ). [ the best
way to do this selection is to hold down shift & control and use the arrow
keys ]; 5 secs = not too bad, now try in the same sheet selecting IV2:IV65535
(ie. omitting top & bottom cells ), and click bold again... Of course, it goes
without saying that with gnumeric the response is instant ( but some other
operations are slower ). The first operation happens to take Excel from the
6.5Mb it takes with nothing in the sheet ( and you thought gnumeric was big
at 1Mb ) to 9.5Mb so ~3Mb of bold style data.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
