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 an ORBit2 leak
in profile de-marshaling. Implemented the linc 'is_local'
operation, so we can bypass the long object key
construction stuff and get the big Solaris speedup.
- Spent ages chasing various ORB issues /
working out why nothing worked any more; hmm. Discovered
Mark had broken bincompat in the idl compiler, and that
everything needed re-building. What a waste of time.
- Looked at vicious-build-scripts, they seem
ridiculously complicated, and likely to trash all my work
without asking, re-built packages using IDL by hand
again - simpler and quicker.
- The cunning Eurostar on-line booking service
just doesn't work - wonderful, try phoning them, after
cutting and pasting the incredibly miniscule and unreadable
phone number to a console. After selecting several options,
you get to re-dial another number ! wow. Not a good day.
- Discovered that the internal Ximian package
server I was using was packed with stale packages and not
much else after using the public servers - sigh.
- Installed all of Jacob's binariess from the
Gnome 2.0 development channel by the magic of red carpet.
Committed the new libgnome accessibility key, improved
the libbonobo stock icon name mapping for Gnome 2.0.
- (padded) Cell group, lots and lots of soup,
did the 'Word' section, Collosians 3:22 - 4:2, on work.
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,
