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 - interesting things
happening in the world. Explained the UI handler to Mark,
hopefully we'll see some funkyness in the Foo bar shortly.
Committed Arjan Molenaar's canvas patch.
- Onto working out why test-ui segvs, turned on
glib memory debugging, enabled glib object tracking in linc
and libbonobo. Mercifuly we seem to be pretty golden; no
- It seems Darin is well into porting Nautilus
to Gnome 2.0 - which is wonderful. Checked it out to see
how I can help. Fixed up a few issues, sent a patch off to
Darin. An encouraging ORBit2 fix from Johan Dahlin (zilch)
that seems to suggest he's poking at the new typelib stuff,
- Realized the Nautilus problems come down to
the zoomable interface not being ported properly. Read
through the code - urgh, a horrible mess. Committed a
fixed up zoomable, ( with some BonoboWidget fixage ) and
onto the frame. Committed my Nautilus patch.
- Fixed up the frame, fixed up Nautilus. Looking
better, but for the huge GtkObject -> GObject transition
work that is probably needed inside Nautilus on all the
CORBA related objects. Back to libbonoboui, fixed up some
more bits, and played with Nautilus some more.
- After a while got a window, and a sidebar to
come up - some evil problem with bonobo-activation /
ORBit2 though - time for the trace debugging. Moaned about
regex brokenness in gnome-vfs, again again. Committed a
fix to eel, and sent a Nautilus patch to Darin with another
few sillies. I can now get to the help menu and it seems
to hit a stable state after a while.
- J' arrived home, stopped. Sat around drawing
time-lines of our lives and talking things over -
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,
