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 earlyish, got to work on making moniker parsing and
resolution fully asynchronous without having to bastardize the nice IDL
- Implemented a nastily hacked up version for the resolution
process, not at all pleasant, but functionaly.
- Decided to try and hack up a quick async CORBA binding in
Bonobo as an easy way to take some of the ugliness away, looks lots
nicer, rather inefficient due to the evils of forwarding. Why, oh why
did they have to implement forwarding in such a way that you have to
store all your state ( if you want to do things asynchronously ) until
you get a reply; blocking is such an attractive easy option.
- Checked out the gnome-components list, and again Miguel
is evil is the cry; sigh. Better still, having tried to explain his
position they try to gnaw at me instead. Battled at length.
- Bed early, tired, Miguel put up a paper
on monikers today in a prettified form.
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,
