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; breakfast - to work !
- Made libbonobo not only compile, but execute, wow.
If only people wouldn't commit unapproved patches, and if only
I had time to read patches more carefuly; hey ho.
- Chewed mail, updated MrProject - having fixed my
account passwd, secure forced password expiry; not seen that
much since university. Nice looking, the Evolution stuff plugs
into it nicely; the new views are very plush, looking much
- Uploaded the slug talk here
and as a tar.bz2 here (4Mb).
- Reviewed the last IBM developerworks article,
some minor corrections - but looks good & more useful than
- Worked on getting the next bonobo release
together; now blocking on Ettore. Small gnome-vfs moniker
fix, made some more regression tests run automaticaly in
- Did a little bug maintenance, lots of bogus
evolution bugs filed against bonobo; sigh.
- Hacked up bonobo-conf to do utf-8 validation,
and have a spurious global doc node on every node with the
magic string 'UTF-8' in it's encoding, so that each property
set we can do a strcmp on it ...
- Off to Circular Quay (NB. pronounced 'key', NB. Nota Bene,
NB. A useful note [ a long aside for American readers ] ). Met Julia
just out from her Charity seminar. Went to a nice Italian type
restaurant. Had a Kangaroo salad, first you feed them, then you
eat 'em - rather good in fact; a lamb/beef hybrid.
- Notably one had to walk through an art gallery to
the salle de bains, which had another curious suspended urinal
strange. On the way back Julia said 'Ximian - the monkey
business' rather a good marketing line for when we're scraping
- Home on t'rain, very tired; mailed St Lukes to try
and beg or borrow a Vicar for a wedding. 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,
