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, support guy arrived as I finished showering; what
timing. Nice chap replaced the motherboard with a DoA one, didn't help,
eventualy got a system back together with a new processor, very dodgy.
Unconvinced that the problem is fixed. Demo'd some of the flashy bits
of GNU/Linux / Gnome to the chap. Sent him on his way with a RH6.1 boxed
set and a LinuxCare rescue CD.
- Time to hack again.
- Read mail instead; what a state the world seems to have got
itself into, frightening really.
- Noticed several problems in the UI stuff caused by incomplete
integration of the new toolbar code.
- Computer died; more haranguing of the company that provides it
progressively less and less impressed with the competance of the support
staff. Apparently someone might be here on Monday.
- Fixed up Thomas' computer to include my disk.
- Continued to investigate the brokenness.
- Didn't run my X server in the chroot environment so
I'm stuffed, can't run the X server in a chroot environment it transpires,
at least not without gymnastics.
- Miguel rang, "it's good to talk", we decided that it was
possible and desirable to get a Bonobo out the door ASAP without the
degree of changes we though before.
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,
