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
- Can't sleep at the right time ( doh ) instead of disciplining
myself I got up at 3.15am while the phone calls are still cheap.
- IRC'd with Ettore, Billy, Ariel etc. read some of the amusing
Gnome Office flamage around the place. Committed a bonobo fragment,
re-worked my oaf factory registration check patch and sent it off.
- Put my OLS slides up here
after a rather expensive modem upload, if only BT would get their act
together on ADSL.
- Got some information describing Bonobo together. 7.00am
back to bed, 2pm up again, jet lag did something very strange to me.
- Found that xpdf had been hacked to put the scrolling code
in the component; I just can't believe it. Flame grr, we might just as
well have GtkButtonScrolled, GtkEntryScrolled etc.
- Committed oaf timout patch. Struggled to fetch mail, spent
all day trying to get the sample-container into some sort of shape.
Fixed sillyness with removing an activated view. Grief, people committing
to Bonobo without posting patches too.
- Committed the last weeks work to Bonobo, a very big patch,
AFAICS no API breakage though.
- Marveled at the flameware on gnome-hackers,
some want to move most of gnome-libs into Gtk+, others thing the distinction
is right and sensible. People's problem with gnome-libs in the past seems to
have been that it is tough to build and has all these dependencies. It seems
that now Gtk+ has exactly the same number of dependencies ( especially the
ugly image libraries ones ), so there is no good argument against gnome-libs
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,
