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
- Tried to patiently explain my proposed IID naming
scheme to Maciej.
- Hacked away at various small things, ineffectualy.
- Thomas arrived home on leave from school for my Aunt's party.
Good to see the chap again really.
- Crisis Viledin practice, not much progress; removed the
difficult semi-candenza, sounds awful. Gambling on a total lack of
musical literacy in my audience.
- Nice party; excellent food, lots of old people to talk to,
met cousin Andrew again erstwhile of Sequent, now in IBM. IBM's Linux
strategy seems to be most interesting indeed. Having lots and lots of
people contribute code under their own names; wierd.
- Played worryingly badly, loosing my grip.
- Got back to see the namespacing issue being beaten to
death by Mathieu, grief. It seems Maciej is determined to have all
namespacing dealt with by a committee appointed by the foundation
board. Clearly, a 73 member inter-departmental, inter-company,
inter-continental committe is needed to decide, all the hot political
action in the namespacing issue; preferably with a suitably
complicated voting mechanism. Still at least we both agree the
foundation should 'own' the GNOME/ and Bonobo/ domains if they can in
fact be registered. The most amusing thing is that if I hadn't pointed
out the serious namespacing problems and started to co-ordinate the
fix, no one would have noticed. Furthermore there have been no
complaints about my ( uncontroversial ) naming allocation whatsoever.
- Stress before bed; just what I need.
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,
