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 extremely extraordinarily early, mailed J
- Hacked on my tutorial, shower, breakfast.
Got a safe deposit box, to deposit my safes in - rather
frightening regulations on the thing though.
- Lots of very tedious talk on gnome 2 list
about extending the libgnome freeze deadlines, and screwing
about with lots of the work that has gone in to carefuly
prune crud APIs out and put them in a compat library.
Grief ! sit back and watch your work unravel.
- Had a look at fixing some gnome 2.0 canvas issues
for my demo.
- Managed to photocopy my talk, made 30 copies,
expecting 25 people - 10 extras turned up, and amazingly
managed to keep most of them there for 3 hours. Pleased
with the talk as a whole. Slides are here, a
link to Hillaire's python tutorial. Also the
lisp to make C-x 4-h do gtk-doc style comment headers. You need
(load "~/gnome-doc.el") in your ~/.emacs file and
- Overall went well.
- Back to the booth, met the guys - absorbed a pep talk.
- Met Bill Haneman, and tried to get bonobo-activation
to build on Solaris - no joy; scuppered in several directions,
mostly in system headers, -Werror should be a per user CFLAGS
option, as all right thinking people know.
- Spent a long time there, the accessibility stuff is
looking sweet though overall. Deserted by Ximian, lost my laptop,
off for dinner with Bill, bed early exhausted.
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,
