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, pulled mail. Interesting lockup in
ORBit2 it seems, started writing a regression test to try and
re-produce it. Did some spelling fixes in the UI IDL for
- Chased Darin's 'deadlock' bug where we get two
processes just waiting for each other to reply, seemingly
having lost the other's input. Fixed a scad of quite
worryingly trivial bugs in linc-connection; not the cause
- Managed to contact Anders and get a
libgnomeui-1.106.0 out; badgered the release team to stage /
release / announce etc.
- After a couple of hours of instrumenting my
linc / glib to the very hilt I found that we wern't recursing
over the GSource, because the GSource didn't have the
can_recurse flag set. Sigh; what a waste. Fixed, committed
and off for lunch.
- Updated ORBit2's purify cleanliness, wipe all
objects having released them, shaved a stack frame in
several places, cleaned coding style. Did a linc-0.1.7
release. Back to libbonoboui lifecycle, discovered some
particularly silly sillies.
- More poking in at-spi, mailed Bill some more -
looks like it needs some cleaning before libbonoboui will
depend on it. Cristiano working on gnome-terminal found a
nice Gtk+ bug, and sent a patch - great. Copied the
Gtk+ packages across from ftp.gtk.org, so we can release a
full set. Worked on the ORBit2 FAQ a bit more.
- J' arrived home - went for a run, Natchos,
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,
