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
- Chewed my mail queue, fixed up bonobo's idl so it works
with other orbs; special hacks for missing CORBA::TypeCode support in ORBit.
- Went to meet my friend Marijn and hear Ann Widdicombe speak,
seems to have her head screwed firmly on. It's always moderately amusing
to hear politicians talk, but she was rather short on the scathing criticism
of the government and more about constructive policy I thought. Apparently
the UK prison population no longer sew mail bags but make socks for themselfs,
in fact 2.8 million socks per year. Despite this there are still sock
shortages in certain prisons ( apparently ). Despite being a conservative she
was not in favour of boot camps and rock breaking as a deterant which was good.
- Back to discover the Bonobo fix for ORBit and omniorb to jive with
TypeCodes means that ORBit-perl needs to define __ORBIT_IDL__, this is all a
- Attacked libglade to add support for loading bonobo widgets, a
rather trivial task. It's great to have a bonobo clock control in the gnumeric
- Updated gpdf for the latest bonobo changes, I had missed a load of
- Demo-ed my project to my supervisor at 9.30am (an ungodly hour if
ever I heard of one), they seemed satisfied with a simple CORBA connection and
I muttered something about networking and it went OK. Apparantly a free BIOS
upgrade will give me full duplex sound support whick sounds good.
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,
