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 earlyish, breakfast with Werner Koch,
and a Hurd hacker, off to the conference, and the bar
with Jonita, Miguel, Kenneth, Hannah. Then off to Damien
Sandras' excellent Gnome Meeting talk and impressive
demonstration - a very nice piece of software.
- Had a long talk with some blind chap about
accessibility, and demo'd at-spi to him which he liked,
discussed various end user type featurelets.
- Went to the bar, grabbed some food & met
the C# developers, then off to the Gnome hacking room,
no-one there, had it opened and soon it was full of
happy hackers working on things.
- Added build sheriff permission to linc,
ORBit2, libbonobo, libbonoboui.
- Working on Sunday - horrible, but I'll
take time off on Monday, nothing good to read either.
- Had a nice talk to Mark McLoughlin,
interesting chap & wandered back to talk to various
- Finally left for the Eurostar in a
convenient Taxi, started chewing E-mail on the
train, got my Inbox down to a manageable size - wow.
- Closed some bugs, started poking at
bonobo-activation, fixed a few issues there, sketched
out a TODO of the most obvious tasks. Got the train
from Victoria, re-routed on Sunday for works.
- Hacked on Nautilus porting on the
train, finally solved my color problems to my
satisfaction, at least for now. Discovered librsvg
is reading all svg files 3 bytes at a time, probably
somewhat sub-optimal. Found what looks like a libxml
bug. Whittled down a regression test and fired it off
to DV, until that's fixed only I see the speedup,
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,
