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 really early.
- Hacked on ORBit2 all day, ported the stable
regression tests to it, talked to Elliot for a while about a
mystery idl-compiler bug before adding a sed script to the
Makefile to work round it - not my fault.
- At Elliot's insistance put the small stub / skel
code into the main IDL compiler - yuck, mixing sweetness and
ugliness to make more ugliness.
- Went for Mexican with Jacob: an interesting fellow.
- Shrunk _alloc, _allocbuf and temporarily _freekids
- Used Nautilus from CVS HEAD - wow ! much faster
than I remember - still slow to startup, but great. Probably
purely psychosomatic, I imagine it's always that fast, but
normaly my brain is more alert. The help browser looks
prettier than I remember, they even have a www.theregister.co.uk
newsfeed for the LHS bar - wow I'm sold.
- Sat around hacking on ORBit2 until 12.30pm or so
with Iain playing ogg things from his new panel applet.
- Back to the appartment, met Miguel - tired from
travelling & Alex. Bed.
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,
