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 on time, sucked mail. Committed the
gnome-vfs updates, fixed an eel issue. Since Daniel's
not commenting on my libxml bug, sent kludged patch
off to Darin to accelerate librsvg.
- Committed a libbonoboui acceleration, and
back to the numbing hacking out of deprecated stuff
- Made libbonoboui pass distcheck, chased
debug churn and unclean shutdown across the various
nautilus components. Spent a while building the
components with all the disable deprecated goodness.
- It seems that the various 'fill' things in
ScalableGorilla take most of the ~300ms it takes to
render each icon, hmm, that sucks. Got on-line, updated
libart_lgpl and discovered that Alex Larsson has got
it down to ~60ms, a factor of 5 improvement - great.
Wow, Nautilus is getting very nice, the svg theme is
faster than the pixmap theme in Gnome 1.4 I think,
but only at small sizes, perhaps we can compromise the
fill quality at large sizes to get it quicker.
- Fixed up the in-icon text rendering, so it
works nicely again; good, committed.
- J' arrived home, put some baked potatoes
on, too tired to run, started on the washing up.
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,
