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, off to see the Justice of the Peace (JP)
that lives across the road - to get her to sign my passport
photos certifying that it is in fact a true likeness of me etc.
- Processed some mail, caught the train in the rain.
Hacked away at ORBit2, realized that it was all nicely
virtualized anyway - without me having to worry about it all -
or is it ?
- Fixed a scad of widget re-rendering problems in
libbonoboui - some clown was calling gtk_widget_draw in an
expose method: hmm. Discovered a whole load of new work to do
in libbonoboui - if only it worked well enough to be able to
test new code / forward ported stuff.
- Got home, committed a load of small but nice bits.
- Dinner. After much painful oafd debugging - having
trapped it into being good, discovered the ORB bug causing the
activation context problems. ORBit_object_get_connection being
(confusingly) a macro, and non_existant returning TRUE for local
objects that hadn't been remoted yet - the price of optmization.
- Reported a nasty deadlock in Gtk+/glib causing
serious grief for anyone doing GUI gubbins inside a GUI
event callback - the joys of thread safety.
- Bed somewhat late, I wonder where J' has got to.
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,
