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 with J', chewed mail. Lots
of interesting work around, lots of good mail.
- Suprise suprise, libxml doesn't preserve utf-8
even if you have a doc node, and you set the encoding to utf-8.
Spent a very long time carefuly constructing a regression test,
debugging the problem to an extent, testing gconf, writing a
lengthy report; sigh, and I reported it last year.
- Still, with bonobo-config stalled, waiting on DV
I get a chance to do fun Gnome 2.0 hacking; re-build the
system. The pushing inside Ximian for the Gnome 2.0 team to
build nightly snapshots seems to be bearing fruit.
- Started reading about process management in the
Linux kernel, I was sent to review. Most interesting - sadly
I'm no expert on this so reviewing it is not feasible; in fact
the text is very interesting.
- Got gal back into action - fixed a load of silly
issues - now e-table works as well as e-tree but the shortcut
bar is being silly. Stuck on the (incredible) GtkObject double
destroy feature, stopped it happening in my Gtk+ for now.
- Blimey - it knows how to rain here - none of this
fooling around with raindrops - great bucketloads; glad we're
on the 2nd floor.
- Went to the library to photocopy some extraordinary
pictures of Father as a young man, met J. home, and then out
for a run in a lull in the downpour.
- Very tired, dinner, 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,
