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 at 4.30am, started poking at at-spi again,
more cleaning around the shop, implemented a sol'n for the
exit / mainloop / quit abstraction. Found a memory leak in
glibc's elf code with memprof - nice, sent a bug report and
patchlet off to bug-glibc. Pruned some leaks in atk.
- Beggining to feel rather ill, argh. Found and
fixed a nasty link bug making gconfd-2 chew 100% CPU; hmm.
Copied the bonobo docs into libbonobo, and fixed / upated
- Breakfast, and checked out Scroll Keeper
since Nautilus was spawning a 50 or so shell processes all
zombifying and moaning about it's absence; hmm. Pulled
- Hmm, the tree view refuses to activate too -
in the course of fixing added _much_ prettier exception
reporting to bonobo-moniker-oaf, so we can catch errors
trivialy now. Made the tree view activate nicely,
discovered eel-ctree needed porting.
- Ulrich points out my glibc patch is totaly
bogus, hey ho - try again with the latest source. Nearly
went mad with boredom, doing the EelCList port from Gtk+ 1.2
to 2.0; not at all obvious how to procceed. Discovered the
heinous mess that CList and it's derivatives has spawned.
EelCList -> EelCTree -> EelList -> EelListColumnTitles etc.
Finaly got some icons and text showing up in the sidebar and
gave up, committed and back to glibc.
- Wow - I'm so blessed with a fast connection,
fun things to do and learn and time at the weekend to do it;
- Bill approved this morning's at-spi patch;
committed, made up a mail explaining the performance impact
of (a ? TRUE : FALSE) at execution time, quite apart from
the stylistic monstering - fired it off to Padraig.
- Interested by Martin LK's famous washington
speech, while we often hear:
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and
live out the true meaning of it's creed - we hold these
truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal
we tend to hear less of:
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted,
every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places
will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made
straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all
flesh shall see it together.
- Tea, and 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,
