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 hyper early; took J' to the station at
6.00am, back home for some hacking action.
- Committed lots of bits, leak fix in libbonobo,
theoretical fd leak in linc, set about committing the
nautilus porting bits.
- Uploaded my fosdem slides (rather similar to
the lwe slides) to
here (archive), the funky
new thing being a ScalableGorilla theme shot - now to make Nautilus
fast with svg icons.
- Had mime problems with gnome-vfs that turned
nautilus into a window bomb; hmm. Seemingly gnome-vfs just
refuses to give sensible mime types for anything anymore,
- Did some libbonobo[ui] releases for the weekly
- Drove to Newmarket - amazing how bad the
signposting is at the M23 / M25 junction, finally got
there without much incident.
- Struggled some more with nautilus, trying to
work out why suddenly every mime type is detected
incorrectly. Updated gnome-vfs' test shell, perhaps it's
a version mismatch, re-built everything. Suddenly it all
works, the trials of having used an ancient gnome-vfs.
- Made the nautilus property box selection behave
as it did before, committed. Committed a load of accumulated
fixes to bonobo-activation. Discovered that gnome-vfs is
taking ~300ms per process to parse the mime info database.
Got it to take ~100ms, improved the parser, and sent a
- Wrote my status report.
- J' arrived back, and we set about preparing for
Kate & Alison, lit the fire, set the table, etc. K&A arrived
and we had a lovely meal, roast vegetable & beef lasagne.
- J' led a bible study later, extremely tired,
couldn't concentrate that well, good though. Bed late.
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,
