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. My Girl has E-mailed me and is
alive - horay.
- Wrote some more Gtk+ test code, discovered that
gthread cunningly doesn't warn you if you do multiple calls to
g_mutex_unlock (mutext); - rather unimpressive, and this seems
to be somewhat of a way of life inside Gtk+.
- After finaly getting to grips with the threading
issues in Gtk+ / glib, I got to trying to solve them using
duplicate contexts / main-loops. Code written, only works if
we don't register a watch with the Gtk+ mainloop as well as
the linc one; sigh.
- Off to the pub for dinner with Cell group.
- Finaly caught and fixed the problem - in ORBit2
of course, and commited a new linc / ORBit2 combo to stop the
deadlock in Gtk+ [ and the re-enterancy issues ].
- Committed my oaf debug fixes so it looks nice
again. Removed the bonobo_directory cruft in favour of oaf,
and committed the bonobo_selector fixes neccessary for that.
Hacked more crud out of libbonoboui, reducing line count and
complexity - excellent.
- Consulted my friend David Riddoch of OmniORB fame
on how best to do locking, and the manifest evils of the Gtk+
- Stayed up somewhat late. Still havn't got to my
Tax stuff yet, argh. Stayed up even later - still no mail
from J' - the trials of being silly hours different from
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,
