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, to work - wrote to J at length.
Discovered that my flight to SFO arrived at the airport
halfway through my talk - hmm, doh.
- Got on with poking around at some Gnome 2 stuff.
- Read Mark's CORBA_Object cleanups wrt. the mess
with Object Keys - looks nice to me, what an evil mess of
mis-optimzed stuff there is in there, even still.
- Talked to Chris about shmem. To list shared memory
segments use ipcs and to remove leaked ones: ipcrm.
- Helped track down and nail an evil and brainless
soup bug - horay :-)
- Note; lsof -p >pid< shows the files opened
by a certain pid, and fuser >file< shows the processes
using a certain file.
- Martin managed to get an initial port of the panel
up and running ... great. After some considerable debugging
it seems that gconfd-2 is the cause of a vast degree of
initialization slowness in Gnome 2.0. Still, at least that
means it's probably easy to accelerate.
- Bed early.
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,
