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
- Slept badly, awoke in the night with the
infernal itch, drunk too much (water) before bed
probably. Read "The Silver Chair" C.S.Lewis - an
excellent book, slept. Up not so early, chewed mail.
- Looked at the nautilus throbber, fixed rather
a few ugly sillies, worrying. Realised I had a load of
outstanding nautilus work un-committed, doh. It seems that
bonobo-activation is now somewhat less than reliable, looks
like a linc/ORBit2 issue - sigh, all of the regression
tests pass just fine. Started binary chopping - intermittent
ORB issues are just evil to catch.
- Finally found the bug after several hours of
slog, in Nautilus - created by a careless addition of some
code in the standard factory code - doh.
- Committed my Nautilus patch, sent some queries off
about the curious size_allocate behavior of some widgets.
Tried to be patient with Darin. Started re-building my system
again with the recent versions.
- Cell Net, lots of interesting things about cultural
immersion, re-inspired by "Every day it's you I live for" -
which makes things somewhat more encouraging.
- Back home, read "The last battle", sleep.
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,
