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 - no mail from J; perhaps she's
been mauled by wild kangaroos !? phoned her to check - in
defiance of probability, she's just fine; excellent.
- Back to the final corners on the UI node re-write,
nailed the status regression - looking good. Committed to a
branch 'ui-shrink', sent patch to the list, encouraged Jacob
to use the code.
- Discovered that bonobo-conf is doing utterly nasty
things with xmlNodes and casting them to BonoboUINodes and
things, making the changes far, far more invasive; yuck.
- Fixed up bonobo-conf and commited to the
'ui-shrink' branch, hmm, ugly. For evolution, hand waving
finger in the air, not like for like comparisons seem to
suggest we save ~ 600Kb. 20% of the shell's memory
- Argh - working on Gnome 1.4 is so frustrating,
like wading through treacle - Gnome 2.0 is so much nicer.
- Did a new libgnomeprint release for Lauris,
discovered it was still broken after making the package; sigh.
- Went for a nice walk down by the river side,
a most pleasant and beautiful evening.
- Back into action, forward ported the UI work
and Alex' cache to libbonoboui, committed to the hilt -
Gnome 2.0 is great. Posted my next self-help to gnome-devel,
problem is I havn't writen no. 6 for the local mob yet:
slipping behind, another 13 hour day, and still no 3 hour
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,
