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, off to the conference; met
Damien & off to RMS' talk, the same talk - good
question about Free software on watches & whether
it's ethical to drive a car with a non-free computer
control system. Hacked on my talk.
- Had dinner with various people, then off
to do my talk; lots of last minute hacking to get the
1024x768 resolution I had been promised - which lead
to some rather fumbled demo workings - drat.
- Back to the Gnome hacking room, got it
opened, wrote to J'. Started committing some stuff,
gnome-applets, gnome-panel, eel, sent my status
- Did a bonobo-activation 0.9.4 release for
Jeff, who complains of a lack of one; fine. Committed
the libbonobo bits.
- Dragged off for an interview with the KDE
people, finished that to find the room outside dark,
my laptop & clothes gone etc. Located the various bits
outside - good.
- Met David Faure' and had a drink with some
of the KDE guys - interesting. Then off to the party,
lots of people crammed on a bus then a tube, the party
was in a nice venue, but the food was not bulky enough
for famished Gnome hackers so we left for a restaurant
elsewhere. Had some greek food, learned about Plan 9,
- Tried to find my way back to the party,
with no success, taxi to the hotel instead, 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,
