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
- Sat down and drew pictures of what I want gb to do, pretty pictures
too. Decided to change my approach. Hacked a lot, amazing what a bit of design
can do, it works. Spent a while shifting rubbish to the dump.
- Lots of code cleaning inside gb, reducing the line count; excellent,
sadly the regression test refuses to acknowledge that 3 is prime [ VB. is a most
excellent language for attempting to factor large primes such as 3 ]. After a
little re-education of the 'For' code it learned it's lesson.
- Implemented the goto statement, the implementation is amusingly
inefficient and slow. Then implemented On Error Resume Next etc.
- Committed, and mailed Ravi about his next nice patch.
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,
