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 very late 1.20am or so; having missed a load of talks; drat.
- Mike Shaver's talk; interesting thoughts about how
'Open Source' affects the development process.
- I forgot to mention Arik, for being nice to me in Boston.
- Sat around and hacked for a bit, talked to a chap called
Billy about creating more non-gui bonobo components. Checked out Gergo's
cool new, but very embryonic Java Bonobo implementation from CVS, tried
to build it.
- Off to dinner with jpr, danw, Chema & Miguel, Crepes, good
food, enjoyable company, we discovered it would be truly easy to re-write
xpdf to use all the cool gnome-print stuff which would give us decent font
support with crisp output, speedy canvas rendering, efficient zooming etc.
Wow. Now if only Miguel and I had ported xpdf after we had gnome-print
- Back to hotel to hack on demos for tommorow. Off to Zero
Knowledge party, then back with Daniel.
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,
