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
- A discussion about another 'bug' in the UI handler, the
non-translation of keyboard hotkeys (ie. Ctrl-v = Paste ). Of course,
we have never done this for any Gtk+ before. It turns out according to
Owen (priceless) that people are familiar with the English accelerators,
which are pretty arbitary in English anyway, in fact it seems for
Japanese menus they use [KANJI] (_F) to keep the M-F -> File shortcut.
- Back onto the miracle xml translation perl script...
- It seems the Brighton Peace Centre are having problems
with their internet setup, running off a Linux box. Luckily it seems
they managed to find a clueful person before I had to fix it all.
- Finaly got the perl / Makefile scriptage under control ...
- Thomas arrived home, got him setup and pointed at a nice
big task in the hacking department, he was impressed with the new
developments around the place.
- Converted VB.Label and VB.Check to the new object system,
then the VB.Timer and the VB.PictureBox hacks, I hope to construct
the first GB DoS attack with the VB.Timer object :-) Drat, it seems
you can't get a VB.Timer to play ball outside of a Form, and since
people would see the form it's hardly worth it.
- Got GB back into a state where it looks almost as good
as it did before I mangled it, the number game runs well again, time
for a new release I think.
- Mail from Dom, it seems that having integrated Gnome-Print
into AbiWord, he is now about to tackle Bonoboizing it which is great
- Got a gb-0.0.14 release out before the anticipated
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,
