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
- Up late, bass guitar practice; index and second finger
hurting nicely; normal guitar fiddling, knackered thumb; time to hack.
- Hunt bugs in eog; re-organise guppi bonobo code to make it
look nicer, implement remote printing. Clean bonobo stuff to use g_atexit,
add a UI exception_get_text thing to help UI design.
- My '2' key ( also '"' ) is misbehaving, probably reached the
end of its lifetime =(.
- It seems Frank is happy to work on decompressing VBA from
OLE2 files; excellent chap. It seems there is a major security hole in
the 'Password protection' feature on macros that some companies exploit
to sell VBA macros; ie. it doesn't encrypt the raw data, just a dialog in
Excel. StarOffice 5.2 will show you the thing as a comment, soon gnumeric
will run it for you too =)"
- update everything and start re-building. It seems IBM don't
want to pay either accomodation or flight for me, a poor hacker. Heh ho,
we have a company to pay / plug now I suppose.
- Upgraded RH 6.2 and installed Helix GNOME on my test system,
see if I can get a CVS build environment as well as the nice GNOME core
stuff all in 1 machine. Is it possible to do 6.1->6.2->Helix smoothly;
it seems not, but I have an extremely odd configuration to be fair.
- Spent a while killing obscure gnome-print bugs; art_alloc,
g_free; I ask you! fixed another heinous crime in sample-container.
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,
