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
- Discovered the gnome-db bug has evaporated with the new bonobo
- Spent ages doing CVS surgery on libole2 and gnumeric to get
them separated and segregated as was rather neccesary.
- Up, got impaled by Miguel for adding an extra library dependancy
before 1.2, argh.
- Spent a while staring at brokenness in oafd, before realising that
some clown had not declared several exceptions they were throwing. Sweet,
re-wrote a lump of the code to clean. Fixed the obvious gnumeric.oafinfo
bug that caused the hunt in oaf, belt and braces.
- Bug chasing inside gnumeric's embeddable grid, nailed lots of
- Discovered that due to some incredible cockup at Heathrow my
hour of safety margin dissapeared and I was too late to eat out with the lads,
- Spent a long, time hacking gnumeric to load Excel gb macros,
make the gb lexer both simpler and more complicated respectively, it seems
project files have a truly brain dead format. Discovered that parsing was
failing on 'GoTo', stubbed goto with a heavy heart it will be evil to
implement properly, will require a nice complicated test case too.
- Lay around till late at night waiting for the others, got so
bored I contemplated implementing goto, it requires a re-write killing the
recursion and doing it explicitely; what fun, it's hardly as if the recursion
is complicated =)
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,
