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 somewhat late; alarm failed to go off. J' nearly late
for her meeting - somehow time doesn't work in this place. Luckily the
meeting just across the road. The room also has a high speed internet
connection. Great - better than in Sydney.
- Chewed mail. Horray there is a frozen Gtk+ release -
great news indeed for a monday morning; lets get a library beta
out fast. Worked on persuading 'raven' to move his app to libbonobo.
- Discovered a slight issue in the at-spi work, and a load
more brokenness - no user_data's on any of the callbacks; sigh. Lots
more fixage before commit.
- Did a linc-1.0.10 release; a number of fixes, released
ORBit2-2.3.98 and realized I'd missed the TypeCode expansion fix, and
released ORBit2-2.3.99 to match. Started re-building gnome from the
- The laptop is starting to hang for brief periods;
rather worrying - perhaps kernel VM issues - or dodgy hardware,
nothing in the syslog, just a 5 second freeze and then back to normal
every now and then. Listened to Rachmaninov, Symphony no. 2. Did
a libbonobo-1.107.0 release; very few changes.
- Back to at-spi fixing, emit a signal when we get an event
so we get a powerful callback mechanism we can sub-class.
- Spent an age hacking on at-spi, fixing brokenness piled
on brokenness, and not being able to commit in case it caused a
'regression' whereas it seems to me the thing has no right to work
anyway - when you can see bugs just reading the code. Sent another
patch off to Bill; 106K now.
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,
