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. Chewed mail, fixed tags for Jacob,
split out older stuff for Telsa, the FOSDEM guys just
ramblings of mine.
- Federico finished his Bonobo UI speedup patch, to
stop us continually pushing the same pixmaps to the X server,
apparently giving yet more slickness and speediness to HEAD
bonobo, it seems to be almost time for a release.
- Looked at gconf-editor, very nice, fixed some of
the UI schema issues in libgnome. Split out the API critical
part of the at-spi work, and posted it - along with the
keyboard listener code that doesn't work without my changes
- Moved the 1800 unanswered but probably stale mails
from my inbox to an 'XOldInbox' to speed up filtering / mail
fetching in evolution. Re-mailed my patch to kill flicker and
speedup folder switching in evolution, seemingly no-one has
- Transfered the latest gtk+ package set to
ftp.gnome.org from ftp.gtk.org, bzip2ing and md5summing as
we went. It seems lots of code is converging on there in a
quite encouraging and unprecedentedly co-ordinated fashion,
- Discovered that I could make distcheck with my
current autotools, and that the libbonoboui package I just
pushed didn't pass. Set about re-generating it. Merged
Federico's seedups into bonobo, and did a release of that,
laptop slogging along somewhat slowly. Release
libgnomeprint, moved onto libgnomeprintui. Interleaved
packing bags with building.
- Hacked on Nautilus' shutdown on the train;
polished off the warnings, and a crasher silly. Met J',
good to see her again, after so long. Got the train, and
the car home with Di'. Home, flushed mail.
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,
