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
- Woken 3 times at hourly intervals before 11.00am by a nice
Meals on Wheels lady wanting to give us lots of frozen food for my Nana
since they can no longer deliver due to lack of fuel. Great.
- Fixed up several things in Bonobo / evolution. Got onto
Nautilus, it really seems that no-one bothered to use the toolbar code
at all really. Tragic. More fixing of several old / new style path
problems that I had accidentaly created.
- It seems that instead of putting things inside
placeholders, using them as virtual directories to organise the menus
Nautilus uses them as positional markers for insertions; interesting
use case. A lot of grunt work converting it, still at least they use
nice defines for paths.
- Discovered pushd; where has this command been all my life.
- Got Nautilus to the point where it ran far enough to fail
the assertion I was looking for; excellent. Fixed that and got menus
up and running.
- Jpr was worried about how his toolbars looked so I turned
to falling back to user ui settings, now your toolbar can say anything
you like, or nothing at all; you can turn off all your menus and just
use keybindings etc.
- Added a check for libunicode on gnome-print build,
it turns out there were too problems with the same symptoms. I only
saw the theoretical complex one, Raph pointed out the obvious missing
check in the configure file; doh.
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,
