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 before 3.00am, hmm - looks like the 'ole body
clock is a tad confused - but can still count 8 hours. Chewed
mail. Started re-building my system in a bottom up fashion.
- Jacob's doing really great work with libglade-convert
so we can map all our old GUI code to Gnome 2.0 - the action
here. Also porting glade1 to Gnome 2.0 on the glade-gnome2-branch.
- Rodrigo also steaming away at my TODO - which is
great, it's most encouraging to have such help. Chewed mail,
while the re-build churned ... re-set my system time; sigh,
how can it always be so wrong ? - prolly copying etc around to
have different configurations I expect.
- Everything still building, and the laptop not doing
so for responsiveness with 3 parallel builds going on - not much
swapping happening though so ... reviewed Mark Sobell's chapter.
- To at-spi eventualy, sent a patch to Padraig, the
signal lookup business is just broken wrt. signal registration
only happens on class init => we should init the class.
- Downloaded festival
so I can spend forever getting the computer to talk to me -
nobody loves me; sob. [ NB. 'sigh' has apparently been banned,
so sobs will have to suffice instead ].
- More at-spi bug fixage, robustification and
testing, buckets of fatal bugs nailed. Managed to get festival
working, and the magnifier - rather impressive overall I think.
- Grant Richards came round for lunch which was nice,
then Simon phoned - Mr Tennant's cancer is much worse and
unresponsive to treatment - he's on the way out, very sad.
Simon seems to be doing well though, which is great.
- Back to at-spi; merged to HEAD and committed -
great, found a nice bug in HEAD with the regression tests,
fixed that, and we're pretty golden.
- Dinner, mailed J' saw Jacob's screenshot of Daemon's
progress; nice. Bed early; 8.30pm.
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,
