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, got the E-mail shovel out.
- Finaly got E-mail from Peter our Vicar at
home - horay! apparently this Friday Ximian turns 2
years old, wow. Committed the ORBit2 async bits,
and the libbonobo async moniker bits, and the not
working libbonoboui tests; hmm, not so good.
Committed the libgnomeui bits.
- Fixed up gnome-terminal removing lots of
my devel cruft, and committing something slightly sane
so that Cristiano can hack on it.
- Went shopping, found an amazing key cutting
shop that had an automatic computer controlled grinder
for copying keys.
- Back to the mail mountain, lots of ORBit
interest - good. Wierd problems with async monikers -
trashed all libraries and re-built from the ground up.
- Wrote a status report so Miguel thinks I'm
doing something. Reduced the number of FIXME's in
libbonobo to 8, mostly fatuous ones - a set of
- Fixed a nasty bug in my gnome-vfs monikers.
Located my earlier nasty async problem inside
bonobo-activation; hmm - no-one tested the async code,
added a regression test. Slogged away discovering yet
more brokenness and finaly the activation tests pass.
- J' home, tried to phone the Vicar.
Discovered my friend Tim Spanner is working for the
church for a year - horay, and said he would play for
the wedding, no Vicar though.
- Out for dinner at a 'modern Australian'
restaurant, ended up eating a huge chunk of beef, with
almost 0 carbohydrate; sigh, what a waste, tasted good
- Back to 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,
