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, no interesting E-mail. Phone call
from Guy - Kate gave birth to a baby girl at 5.47pm
yesterday: Ruth >something< Lindsay, wow - quite
- Ulrich Drepper fixed my glibc bug - excellent;
told me off for using the glibc internal __asprintf in my
problem demonstration - sigh, doh.
- Phoned Anty Sylvia in Australia - but she
was not in, doh. Re-posted on the gmodule name mangling
bug, posted a patch to solve the problem this time.
- After hacking up the Any within struct
regression tests - it seems ORBit2 doesn't suffer from the
ORBit-stable bug, phew.
- Gergo doing some great work on cleaning up the
libbonobo - the Factory infastructure is now much, much more
- By fooling with dev-fs, finally managed to get
my cdrom to work - time for some U2 I think. Kept ringing
Australia - no answer.
- Spent a while fixing all the libbonobo API
consistancy bugs that Jamil has found, lovely to have
someone pouring over the API - good work.
- Spent a while reading "Structures or why things
don't fall down" (JE.Gordon) ISBN-0-14-013628-2, possibly
one of the best, most accessible books on engineering I have
ever read. Of interest to any intellectual, covers an eclectic
mix of materials, structures, topics from dress making to the
American railroad trestles, ships breaking apart at sea, birds
pulling worms out of the ground etc.
- Wrote to J at some length, not that she can read
it - on business in Melborne Monday early. The days seem to
fly by like crawling toads till we meet. J' was asked out by
some random bloke at a party last night - said no obviously,
but the incubus of potential loss hangs over me.
- Back to hacking on libbonobo - a GClosure code
read for the API, in favour of all the language bindings.
- Solved a problem for Seth with a control. On
Seth's instructions moved the libgnome monikers into
- Very constructive exchange with Maciej over quite
what to do with oaf for Gnome 2.0, it seems we got a long way.
- Got to the bottom of Gergo's moniker problems -
a bug in his code, not mine; excellent.
- Bed at midnight - very tired, finished "The
Bang Bang club" though - not a massively good book IMHO.
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,
