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
- Slept a little.
- Fled the dawn around the globe. Watched 'Atlantis'
which was fairly appalling. Very little character development,
in fact that characters were about as 2D as the animation was
badly done; sigh.
- Cleaned masses of cut and paste crud out of
at-spi/libspi, just a staggering mess of 5 line cut and paste
with different buggy variants; sigh. It would have been so
easy to write right in the first instance. Shoved the SpiBase
class in at the bottom to manage the AtkObject ( which we proxy )'s
- Finaly back in England - with the luggage, bus &
train home, read lots of King. Father collected me from the
station, great to be home. Transpires they thought I was
returning yesterday and were terrified, which is sad.
- Tackled the most pressing issues in the snail
mail mountain, onto IRC. Red Hat, very kindly Fedex'd me
Red Hat 7.1 - [ I'm a big fan of Red Hat because of their
continuing kind patronage of me in this way ], awaiting RH
7.2 with baited breath, and wishing I hadn't switched to XFS -
I think I was tempted by offers of gdm3 being finished, but
- Had forgotten how great it was to be able to
worship God privately in song with acompanying appallingly
bad guitar playing - remembered.
- Slightly woozy and getting a cold; hmm, missing
J' too. Checked with Mark, added regression test & fixed ORBit2
hashing bug, faster too. Wow - a whole ADSL connection to
myself again - sadly it dies reguarly.
- Some great work in the mailbox from Peter Laszlo,
and Mark at Sun fixing Union marshalling in the ORB.
- Realized I had another great opportunity to test
the time-admin tool now I have moved timezones again, and
HPJ's fix for the same.
- Had a long and very productive and encouraging
phone call with Bill, excellent. A fair bit of work mapped
out which is good, and lots of sense talked.
- It seems the parents have killed the fatted
lentil for me - rejoicing at my home coming; lovely to eat
with them again;
- Bed early at 7.00pm.
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,
