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, chewed mail. A very amusing mail from
Radek, pointing out how to do
evil things to Windows XP. I'm amazed that no-one is
- Polished exception flagging in ORBit2 on ORB
objects, wrote the release notes for the next version.
Checked out Iain's port of gnome-media to Gnome 2.0 ( on
- Fixed up yet more obscure, broken g_signal
mess in libbonobo, sigh. Now we can emit the system
exception signal again - and it's regression tested.
- Starting to get bored of having so much
un-committed work on my machine; will commit after lunch,
it's better all round already in so many ways. Argh,
had to commit libbonoboui 3 times, due to broken pipe
errors in cvs.
- Made the default factory auto-exit
correctly, doh. Chopped another ref count error out of
the moniker GClosure marshaling code.
- Tried to contribute meaningfully to the
complete lack of sense being displayed prominently on the
foundation list. Carried on fixing libbonoboui. Started
writing some hefty regression tests, hard to automate.
- J' arrived home, dinner, more reading of 'The
Man who mistook his Wife for a Hat' - somewhat fascinating,
although the author does love to obfuscate it seems. 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,
