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 late again Thomas Rankin pointed activescripting out to me.
After the recent evil lexer / parser hacks, it should be comparitively
trivial to handle >% If this_is_asp Then %< or whatever.
- Forgot about Almer's interview, replied to him.
- Plugged away at DynAny, tedious stuff the last bits, why
did I do the easy bits first; bad for my eschatological perspective.
- Hacked GB for a light break; discovered some pernicious
re-enterancy problems in the explicit stack code; I forgot you had
to deal with re-enterancy yourself when you do that; perhaps I should
stack, the virtual stack frame. Fixed it another way. Now 'Eval' and
'Execute' work, so some enterprising person could write a little
interactive 'shell' in Gnome Basic.
- Read a nice analysis of EJB vs. COM+ vs. CCM, must
remember that CMP is Container Managed Persistance, not CoMPare.
Luckily from the small scale analysis it seems CCM equates to
COM+/MTS and doesn't overlap so much with Bonobo; either that or
the analysis was just for developing 3 tier whatnots.
- Read the tomshardware
guide to the Pentium 4, in all its glorious technicolour. It seems
his business is rather like that of a chemist. Enterpreting results
after they happen, and predicting that if repeated they will happen
again ( I rather despised chemistry from that angle ). In this vein
I boldly predict that the Pentium 5 will stick with 20 pipeline
stages, shrink the icache and be a sort of pink colour.
- Mailed my gnome-core help_browser interface rename /
re-namespace patch off to George.
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,
