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; to work, sucked mail into Evolution.
A new release of the Gtk+ set out - with many, many fixes -
- Pinned up the latest amusement form Kellogs,
on the side of their giant cornflakes packets; there is a
mouse ringed by a mouse cord; with the legend:
Crashed ? - Fancy a Snack ? Readh for the Kelloggs
with a subscript The Kellogg's Garantee: Kellogg's is
committed to providing quality products, and we welcome your
comments and enquiries - presumably some marketing Guru
needs Microsoft Airbag 2000.
- Got on with the linc work, committed an atk
patch I'd forgotten. Mother sheared me - removing the worst
excesses of a hair explosion, Robert too - Anne Marie
arrived which was nice. 'bert is somewhat brutal to her
which is a shame; he must be nice sometimes though.
- Went to Lord of the Rings - rather good,
somewhat excellent special effects, and overall impressed.
Under-amused with the inital elven king of Rivendale who
fluffed his part.
- Pulled the XFree86 source to give it a bit of a
read, now I'm not scared of a tad of kernel exploration -
it's time to get into X - and to see if what Owen says about
gdk pixbuf rendering is in fact as fast as claimed.
- Hacked in the car on the way home (to Newmarket),
got a fair bit done. Bed - clapped out again.
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,
