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, and mailed J' at length before getting
to the gnome 2 E-mail, escalating flame-war, gack - at least
it's not me in the middle, just yet.
- Off to the show floor - spent all day struggling
for the will to live "This is Red-Carpet, the premier
software management tool ...", "have you seen Evolution ?
the powerful personal information management
application ..." still, some interesting bits. Got to know
the guy cutting the turkey at the carvery better which was
- I met Simon and Jonathan - which was nice,
although having to deal with interested people doesn't help
the smooth flow of conversation.
- Finaly it finished - managed to get a group of
people to get to some place and eat together. Bill came
with us, and Maciej and Eskil and people. Had a nice Mexican
meal thing at a reasonably non-tacky food court.
- Longish talk with Bill about the at-spi code,
how we can make accessibility work across the plug/socket
boundary etc. very productive.
- Back to the hotel to hack, process mail, read
Mono, ORP etc. and sleep.
- Read libffi - interesting indeed, could use it
nicely in ORBit2 and efficiently too if we just re-organised
the TypeCode structures a little. Read a comparison of virtual
machines, and a paper on Finite-State Code Generation.
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,
