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 early, moved bed from my brothers room to my
room as Julia vacated my bed for work.
- Slept until 10.00, realized I had missed my
appointment at the passport office at that time - argh.
- Started chewing mail. Very frustrating time
explaining to people with too much time to write mail [ but
no willingness to educate themselfs by reading code ] how to
proceed on various fronts.
- Overall looking good, reccommended switch to
ORBit2 now. Discovered the reason red-carpet was refusing
to suggest any updates was that my transparent HTTP cache
had cunningly cached the XML packages description for ever,
blanked the cache - 84 Mb to pull.
- Read mail, the CORBA spec trying to work out
what type_id was in fact good for. Thought up a contorted
C++ MI example - without virtual functions and asked David
Faure for elucidation.
- Did some CVS surgery to move the monikers and
storage modules that need gnome-vfs up the dependency heap
into libgnome [ with the tests ].
gnomemeeting, but insufficiently cunning peripherals to
make it work nicely I think, and a lack of time to work out
how it works. Looks nice though.
- Mono was
announced today, got a nice plug in
TheRegister which is always pleasing.
- Commented on Mike Kestners' nice analysis of the
compound document situation inside Bonobo - great work.
- J' arrived home from work - looking georgeous as
- Dinner, talk, 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,
