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
- Put a load of work into my project, since the first part
of this is remote bootstrapping a corba service I decided to pass the
name service IOR via HTTP which is nice. Then I started looking into
the cos-naming interface borrowing chunks of code from libgnorba,
particularly gnome-name-service. Talk about stylistic inelegance,
leaks, redundant lines, bad formatting, great cut and pasted blocks of
code. It all makes my heart very heavy, I'm glad libgnorba has been
re-written, up with the Oaf. On the other hand, some of the ORBit
looks nice which is pleasing.
- Shopped a lot, it's amazing quite how many weetabix can be
consumed in a week. Marveled at an undetected housemate's ablutions,
seemingly water should be passed everywhere but the bowl. This is the
real reason DNA testing was developed in the first instance.
- Groveled ( again ) to Mike Kestner who I now remember has
been working on a better sheet move / copy dialog for a while ( having
committed Dom's yesterday ), bother.
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,
