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
- Serious trouble getting up for the dentist. Went to see the
chap, at a cost of only 20UKP he fiddled in my mouth; excellent, no pain
yet. I had to summarise my biography for him to a sheet of paper, have
your boots been in a foreign dentists in the last month ? etc.
- Mail, some people are thinking about sizing; good.
- Worked on CORBA shrinkage all day; much fun, understand more
of the ORBit internals now, I still don't see why it is the fastest ORB.
Managed to get stuff marshaling beautifuly for in parameters.
- My brother told me a good joke; shock. What do you call a
device for seeing through walls ? a window ...
- Totaly re-wrote my marshaling method, and added demarshaling,
spent a while fixing things and low and behold ... it doesn't work =) oh
well at least it still marshals correctly. Looked for supporting data; it
seems the current Bonobo Stubs/Skels are 1Mb in size; far, far too large.
- Had a nice chat to Miguel about all manner of things Gnomish,
excellent. More hacking, discovered again that I am a moron, fixed
de-marshaling. Now just return values to fret about, an idl compiler back-
end to write and scads of testing to do.
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,
