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, sucked mail, an eclectic mix. Pleaded
with the Gtk+ guys for a glib/pango/gtk_debug_shutdown
method so we can track resource allocation more elegantly
there as well. Gergo sent in a nice patch to fix
bonobo-storage-memory; horay. Mark sent in some fixes, and
some more documentation - what it is to have a person who
as he learns writes it up so others can follow more easily.
- Re-built nautilus looking for another bug
reported by Darin - it's the fire fighting season it seems.
Ordered a book for Mother, the joys of internet shopping.
- Pleaded with Owen on IRC for the _debug_shutdown
approach to Gtk+. Lunch time before I finished fooling around
with non-hacking; got dressed etc.
- Struggled with control lifecycle thing, GtkPlug
does some odd things to GtkSocket; hmm. Fixed some paranoia
in the ORB, spent some considerable time unwinding, and
re-winding the mess in giop-recv-buffer. Fixed several
possible bugs whilst re-factoring, now it's prettier.
- Sent a patch to Mark, and continued re-factoring,
killed the two interlocking state machines - have 1 instead,
turned the 3 case statements into 1, and shortened the code
paths. Sent another patch to Mark and committed; grief - I
wonder if I've nailed Darin's bug by accident yet.
- Another 4-5 instances of Bradford's config
archiver problem - crash on login in bugzilla - assigned to
me in error; sigh. Sent Ravi my LWE slides for his talk in
- Committed some libbonobo[ui] fixups, can't
replicate Darin's problem, so ... looks good. Sent another
mail off on the subject of verifiably clean shutdowns to
- J' arrived home; a bite to eat - and then off
to Church for Marriage preparation - somewhat apprehensive.
Rather encouraging, possibly we're not going to be clawing
each other lots. It seems we can communicate rather well;
which is nice. Amusingly we seem to also have similar
ideas about the strengths of our relationship, and what
we like in each other. Much of interest.
- Back home - ran for and caught the train,
heckled by some drug addict, home & bed - pain in neck
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,
