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 bright and early; got to work on the mail
pile. Lots of nice work happening, Mike Kestner sorting out
Bonobo embeddable canvas items slickly, Alexander let me
commit my Dia patch. Various other misc. patches, bonobo
fixage etc. Jody's doing some excellent work accelerating
the guts of the gnumeric style code an order of magnitude
speedup on average - nice, 2-3 orders for some large sheets.
- Onwards with configurable toolbars, detoured to
help Miguel briefly and added UI support to the moniker test
program; very useful.
- Phone call from John Gill from Renaisance ( a financial
company in Ireland ), clearly a very forward looking chap,
interested in investing some money in gnumeric development.
Reccommended Jon K.H. to him. We need to provide 'Crystal Ball'
and 'At Risk' equivalents apparently.
- Off to catch the train for dinner in London. Got
an even louder red shirt for Christmas, and an extremely
bright yellow tie; excellent - no taste.
- Got to the restaurant - Prism - 147 Leadenhall St.
EC3, managed to walk past it without understanding the
complicated numbering system that the street uses, rather on
time instead of early.
- Lovely room, pleasing plaster work on the ceiling,
almost no-one there which was nice. The lady herself arrived
shortly afterwards, looking wonderful. Had a very pleasant
delve into each other's lives, how interesting it looks from
- Walked back via. St Helen's Bishop's gate, her
London Church, tube to Kings X, fun fun.
- Train; got on with hacking configuration,
getting there, niceish architecture, almost happy with it.
- Rather confused, meal less expensive than
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,
