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 8.30, chewed mail, very positive about
Gnome 2.0. Poked at some libbonoboui issues. Committed
Sam Couter's first ORBit2 cleanup patch; good to have him
on the team. Talked to Mark about the panel - seems to be
coming along rather nicely.
- Started binary chopping leaks out of the UI
code. Discovered GConf leaks nastily, improved built in
ref tracking inside libbonobo. Fixed a rat's nest of
sillies in various places. Mark committed his unhandled
mouse click forwarding code - nice.
GStreamer-0.3.0, and some of the
prereq packages; particularly Hermes-1.3.3, SDL-1.2.3,
mpeg2dec-0.2.0, mad, mad-libs, remember to install the -devel
packages too. Failed to build it - it wants libxml1; can't
ship that with Gnome 2.0; pulled the CVS sources to have a
automake-1.5 apparently neccessary - has some whacked out
perl dependencies; build it from source instead.
- Configured at great length, whilst chopping more
ref bugs out of libbonoboui. Finally got a gstreamer build, fixing
several interesting issues along the way. Sent off a patch to
Wim Taymans for merging action. Got pointed at a load of mug
shots of the hackers.
- Nana is in a bad way - sores all over her and
getting worse, Doctor rang to say she needs to be in hospital
in the next 24 hours.
- Ported the media player to Gnome 2.0, still having
serious issues with the debugger and the module registry; hmm.
Managed to get several of these solved, pushed a code cleanup
through part of the 'elements'. Wrote to J'.
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,
