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 by mother at 1.00pm, scrambled eggs for
- Slogged away at flicker reduction in the UI handler, now
we have a no flicker statusbar and toolbar. Also far faster to set
attributes which is nice.
- Committed after extensive testing, onto menus. Bought
Wow Gospel 2000 to test the waters of Gospel my CD buying success
of which has been 0 so far. Another stressful day.
- Implemented flicker free menus; looking lots snappier,
gnumeric is responding better, better all round ...
- I've been getting a pensive feeling lately that I'm
missing the majority of my mail, life seems extremely silent.
After carefuly examining my procmailrc file to see if it was all
disappearing into some obscure folder ( at length ) I gave up;
- Suddenly remembered that I'd stopped redirections from
Nuclecu to helixcode; drat 3Mb of unread mail.
- Got a mail from top totty Laura James, sadly
not-yet-christian, but an interesting girl, hacker, working for AT&T
research writing Linux device drivers for wireless stuff apparently.
- Bradford found a buglet in oaf's DISPLAY setup, and now
has beautiful remote component embedding working, what a lad. It
seems Mathieu has written some asynchronous activation code so you
can fire up all your components in parallel ( eg. in evolution ).
Very cool work.
- Sent a little patch off to James H to stop a libglade
crash with a wierdness with accelerators. All this mail reading
keeps me up until 5.00am.
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,
