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 early, off to breakfast in the speakers boudoir, very
pleasant. Gave my talk, everything went smoothly, except that my
gnumeric demo ( installed on a different prefix with gnome-print )
failed to happen in an embarrasing way. Still I had lots of screen
shots to fight them off with. Most of the people were Windows
programmers looking to port their stuff.
- Back to the stand to talk to people, dinner and flight
to San Jose. Left the work in the capable hands of Rusty and Ariel,
Rusty has found a couple of rather intriguing bugs in the canvas
which we need to fix.
- Taxi to the conference, luckily everyone was still there
since I had forgotten which hotel we were at. Saw our impressive
stand and associated crowd; excellent. Caught up briefly with the
guys, wandered to the Eazel stand with Miguel to see the demo of
- Off to a celebration dinner thrown by Sun, some amazing
people there, Marco gave a stiring speech and Pat affirmed it all.
Talked to Jon Heard and Owen whilst chewing rather excellent nosh.
Owen explained to me the problems with the local mapping of CORBA
bindings and how tied it is to C; eventualy Owen got the data
through my thick skull.
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,
