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 late, 3Mb of mail over a weekend over a modem.
Lots of Mono mail.
- Checked out libgnomeprint, the new non-GUI split
part of the Gnome 2.0 printing infastructure. Chewed lots of
mail, caught up with a some nice things. Onto ORBit2 again
I think. Owen did a nice writeup of the ORBit2 reference
counting & finalization issues, very helpful - set too hacking
- Sorted out Julia's laptop - discovered a loose screw
inside it ( it fell out ), worrying. Also, we have half an
ethernet card - strange. Also, it seems that there is a filled
PCMCIA card behind a blanking plate, ( complete with hidden eject
button ) and a dubious PCB with wires connected to the card
disappearing off into the innards. Doesn't fill me with confidance
- Helped J pack, send off her unused food to Rachel
next door. Then off to the Airport, got a lift from Sue, lugged
the ladies Lugg-age - very weighty.
- Got to the airport in good time, despite the first
train we got on being rendered irreperable [ weird ], and the
tube being super slow.
- Said goodbye to my love, she cried - got rather
too close myself for comfort. Prayed for each other, parted.
- Tube back into town to get train from Victoria.
- Hacked on libbonobo, resolved the CORBA vs. GObject
finalization issues as Owen suggested. Got home,
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,
