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
- The local hammer lovers club started their anual
bash above my head rather too early in the morning for my liking,
ceasing all possibility of restful slumber.
- Spent a while cleaning all instances of g_freeing
malloced memory in guppi; it sort of broke my demo otherwise.
- Demo, lunch at the 'Mall' ( pronounced mawwwww[l] ).
It seems ftp.gnome.org is disobeying ssh requests; grr.
- Fixed a daft property bug I introduced into Bonobo,
started fleshing out bonobo-storage-xml, tried to add default
focusing to evolution's message composer. Federico points me
at the ICCCM spec, after an interesting read it appears it
doesn't speak on locally active windows wishing to focus remote
- Tried to get remote window focusing working, with
no joy; doh.
- Off to Nat's place ( the Cave ) for Friends and
dinner, they have this cunning hard disk TV cache thing which
is rather fun, great for missing adverts; really it needs some
infallible advert detection algorithem to chop them out ahead
of time; easy in the UK since we have an 'adverts coming'
stripey box in the TRC.
- Nice meal with Federico and Richard, discussed
the future which seems to be a sort of purple colour ( despite
what Orange tell you ).
- Back to the Helix barracks; watched 'Mystery Men'
on DVD, rather a good film although I had been given a rather
too glowing review of it by James beforehand.
- The sleep of the dead; 3.00am.
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,
