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 quite late. Chewed mail, lots of nice work
going on - Martin fixing up the Bonobo UI code nicely, while
I'm still trying to get the demo to run properly for me.
- Mark McLoughlin starts work for Sun on Monday,
sent a cheeky request to various people at Sun that he might
be allowed to continue his work on ORBit2.
- Fixed yet another nasty ORBit2 assumption that
align == size: often true, but for doubles: very broken [
except perhaps on an Alpha ]. We now have all 12 regression
tests passing fully - great.
- Built all of Gnome 2.0 from the ground up again,
with the latest Gtk+ / ORBit2 etc. Fixed ORBit2
CORBA_Object_is_a stuff and add a regression test. Fixed a
daftness in bonobo-config. Now to work out why 'socket' is
returning an fd of '0', worrying.
- Updated depends.dia to try and reflect the
innumerable small modules & their dependencies in Gnome 2.0.
- Julia arrived back home from work - with a nice
Compaq laptop for her time in Australia. Set off out to a
rehearsal for Dianne & Steve's wedding tommorow. Julia travels
every day on the train for an hour with Dianne & they lift
share. Steve is an electro/mechanical engineer putting
solenoids into automotive applications.
- Back home, and off to the pub for a good-bye
party - J' flies to Australia on Monday. Met lots of nice
people and talked to Rachel & Andy from next door a lot.
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,
