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
- Made glade / bonobo behave itself with configure arguments,
and dump a summary of its configuration. Saw for myself the bonobo
wierdness with local sockets and toolbar merging. Fixed Mike Kestner's
problem, a 1 instead of a FALSE in a gtk_hbox_new.
- My Scsi disk still seems to go into slow spin rinse cycle
every now and then, everyone will tell me it is a termination problem,
but I just don't care. Down the speed rating, fiddle with the parameters
verify the disk and hope.
- Nice mail back from Hans Reiser, expanding his meme thesis
perhaps I need to read a book about this to understand it properly.
- Having eventualy extracted from BT (Wayne) the information
that my exchange has been upgraded for ADSL, I find they are delaying
the launch until August, and that is the only reason I can't connect now.
Great; try another ISP. The ex-directory BT OpenWorld phone number is
0800 917 9189. Trawled the web extensively for sensible ADSL connection
information, found almost none. Daemon despite having a silly name and
a form to fill in seem to have only business pricing =(
- Apparently the endemic flakiness in achtung is unfixable;
this presents a little challenge, set to on it. Found several rather
glaring bugs whose symptoms were probably being lost in the flood of
useless debug churning out of achtung. Glib mem-check is rather
excellent, except that nothing works to start with when you use it.
- Dispatched achtung patch and some critique, committed
bonobo patch to make toolbar removal work properly; doh. my '2' key
seems to have recovered after extensive cleaning, great.
- Sent Marijn my fun perl script I used to run as a cron
job to grab The Times crossword, convert it to TeX, render to Html
and print out to have something to do during breakfast; now if only
I was good at crosswords =)
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,
