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, J' off to work; pushed a glib patch
into bugzilla, started re-building everything ground up
- Fixed the canvas for the new glib marshaler
regieme, found Owen on IRC & committed the gmodule leak
fix. It looks like the Gtk+ guys are finaly getting
towards a hard freeze; great ! Peter Williams seems to
be fixing up stuff in Gnome 2.0 which is great.
- It seems Evolution 1.0 has been branched
in CVS, and rumour has it that the mono compiler is
running under Linux - which is excellent news, when it
bootstraps I'll be happy. Posted a couple of trivial
API addition requests to gnome-2-0-list.
- Read through Dirk-Jan's latest bonobo expose,
good stuff indeed. Discovered why we wern't re-using
connections properly - passing the wrong arg. to the
cache method; easy fix.
- Discovered (and pruned) some totaly bogus
syscalls and allocation lurking inside linc; yet more
speed. Enabled the connection cache - everything
lovely. Sent another plea off to Maciej to privatise
a load of exposed bits in linc.
- Fixed up the canvas again to build with
the, almost, but not quite frozen Gtk+ - a spasm of
changes before the end ... fixed up libbonoboui to
build; pre-emptively. Lots and lots of ugly rain.
- Did the linc API changes and committed,
assumed implicit activation in libbonobo to
accelerate object instantiation.
- Looked at at-spi again; some work - before
I was filled with frustration and loathing; gack. You
just can't believe it really. Nearly sent a patch off
- J' arrived home, bacon & egg butties - and
off to Thornleigh Baptist church ( in the rain ).
- Did marriage prep. with Pastor Neil and
his wife (counsellor etc.) Jenny - she was far more
provocative in her discussion, but most insightful
- Talked a lot about, all manner of touchy
feely issues - makes one feel greasy inside; net
prognosis - very good in most areas. Only 2 areas
flagged as 'growth areas'; very positive overall.
- Back, bed - no big arguments, no
husband-to-be bashing - very tame. No shipwrecks
and nobody drownded, 'fact nothing to laff at t'all
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,
