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, saw Jules off to work. Got to the
hacking action ... but first, sent a status report in to make
people think I did something last week, and then an invoice
to get paid for it. Lots of bug report reading, and misc.
tedious admin things.
- Mark is doing some really georgous work inside
the ORB - looking extremely nice, shrinking memory usage,
and accelerating the thing too.
- The first in a series of three IBM developerworks
on bonobo was pushed recently it seems.
- It turns out Alex has already re-written the gtype
code to use far less locking using a similar strategy, which
is good, saves me having to finish it.
- Started reading non-inbox stuff, and re-building my
system from the ground upwards.
- Made libgnomeprintui build again, people seem to love
putting the headers in broken places. Of course the mantra is likely
to be "do it the gtk way", but then gtk/gtk.h is only 9 chars, not
libgnomecavas/libgnomecanvas.h at 29.
- Met J at her office, and saw some of the things she's
been working on which was nice.
- Went out to downtown Sydney, saw the 'Opera House' which
turns out to be actualy 3 buildings, each modeled after a slug /
caterpiller, and significantly smaller than you might imagine - but
still somewhat beautiful; picked up a programme. Gunniess on the
waterfront, and a lovely dinner near the rocks.
- Back home, BS & bed.
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,
