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 at 3am, if I was superstitious I might say 'white
rabbits', but I'm not.
- Fixed state synchronisation problems, moved to a more cmd /
widget notification structure, falling back to paths if the node has no
verb or id. It's almost good enough, I feel that 'almost finished apathy'
that cripples so many programmers. Time to do something else :-), force
my nose back to the grindstone, pleasant.
- Progress crippled by slowcate, why does it always pick the
most annoying time to run ? incredible, I think it's watching me.
Implemented placeholders, and the option to add nodes at the top or
bottom of a placeholder.
- Compared line count with the old UI handler; Old: 8341,
New: 3467. Ok, so there is a load more work to do, particularly
keyboard shortcuts, cmd based state synchronisation, lots of little
GUI cleans, standard status bar stuff, GUI user shortcut / toolbar /
menu editor, but it is looking hopeful.
- Got cmd widget sync working for toggle button / menu items,
excellent. Implemented Keybinding merging in an amazingly sluggish way,
why not do a scad of string compares per keypress :-), will hash it later.
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,
