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, all clothes into the machine,
back to bed, to hack. More eel cleaning action, got it
down to a couple of modules with outstanding issues.
- Off to the office via. the Mall, committed
my improvements to in-proc ORBit2 debugging ... Wow,
Marc got the libzvt accessibility code committed - so
now gnome-terminal can be accessible to eg. blind people.
- Committed the minor libbonoboui speedup.
Did some bug closing. Fixed a gnome-vfs finalize
chaining patch. Fixed an ORBit2 on Solaris build issue.
- Uploaded my LWE slides as tar.bz2 and html. Dobey doing
heroic work binary chopping an un-debuggable ORBit
stable issue on PPC, good lad.
- Had a highly exciting talk with Miguel
about MonoBurg and the Mono JITter - which while mostly
un-optimized, and with innumerable known issues gives
better performance than Kaffe - amusing.
- Committed my eel work, sent in some
Nautilus bug fixes, photocopied my receipts, filled out
an expenses form - the pain.
- Dragged off to a talk by Naom Chomsky
by Miguel about the war on terrorism - an interesting
chap, took copious notes, to be written up soon. Plenty
of things to disgree with & considerable food for
thought. Glad I went, but missed 'Drinking Culture' -
somewhat of a tragedy, I'd have like to catch up with
Ettore, Anna & co. in a more relaxed setting.
- Back to the office, wrote to J' back
home very late; bed.
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,
