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. Hacked at-spi, fixed up several issues
with the mainloop handling; started writing some automated
regression tests, added user_data pointers to all callbacks.
After much fixing found bonobo-activation starting 2 instances
of itself - argh!
- Found the stupid bonobo-activation race; really
very dumb, no obvious fix - but evil hacks around. Sigh.
- Managed to get on line, discovered I had enough
votes to be on the board; but sadly 4 Ximian people were
more popular than me :-) still, at least we have a better and
more rounded representation on the board - although one could
argue that 4 out of 11 doesn't quite represent Ximian's
contribution. So I don't have to try hard to be shockingly
polite to people, which is probably a good thing.
- So - someone amazingly clever 31337 genius copied
someone else's 'leet vulnerability and hacked Ximian's mail
server - resulting in a switch elsewhere and the infliction of
maildir => no E-mail.
- It turns out to be substantialy difficult to hack
around the evil bonobo-activation problems; mailed Maciej again,
needs a substantial internal re-write.
- Did a libbonobo-1.107.0 release for Sander.
- Wow - finaly found things in my mail; it seems Bill
committed my work in progress - fixing it up - duplicating
the work I've done, and creating innumerable conflicts and
issues wasting a large chunk of my time - and screwing the
credit / blame information - wow I'm annoyed.
- Spent an hour or so merging the mess together,
and a mystery bug arrived - horay ! sent it off to Bill
and co. again.
- Back to the hotel, and J's calming influence,
off to a cafe for dinner, back to bed.
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,
