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; more libxml fannying around - pinned
the bug down still further with a slightly simpler test,
tried to placate Ettore who doesn't like his strings hex
encoded in the serialised xml.
- Iain pointed me at
this Park Street sermon (Gordon) on war in scripture
the need for defence but not retaliation etc. the Christian
meaning and understanding of a 'Holy War' etc. Extremely
solid and moving as normal; both pacifists and Zionists
get gently rebuked.
- Continued trying to debug the multiple oafd
problem - oafd consumes ~ 1Mb resident memory and takes
a second or so to startup - so stopping 5 starting will
hopefully give a nice win.
- Found and fixed the bug; read a bit more of
the kernel - the nicest way to find why errors happen,
sigh the code looks nice in there. Sadly the only way to
determine if that fixes the bug is pragmaticaly.
- Posted release notes.
- Built bonobo-1.0.9 and released that, without
Ettore's pending fixes, hopefully the moniker escaping bug
will help someone and the fixes will arrive soon.
- J' home, went for a run, had a lovey dinner,
listened to Gordon together, bed early.
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,
