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, to work, little mail of
interest. Did some nautilus bits, ported some
string ellipsizing to pango, fixed the xalf
- Mark going great guns fixing stuff
in bonobo, cleaned & committed the bonobo-activation
query cache, fixed zoomable ref counting for Darin.
- Spoke to the travel agents, no immediate
joy, they'll call me back - bother. Looked at
nautilus' abnormal component termination. Discovered
libxml is doing ~20ms worth of redundant read syscalls
all returning 0 bytes read (end of stream) at the end
of each of the ~60 .server files we open in
bonobo-activation-server, rather dwarfing the time
taken to actually parse the files. More performance -
horay. Stopped the server multiply parsing .server
- Got to J's office, lovely to see her
after so long - she's too lovely to remember entirely
what it's like being with her.
- Out for dinner with two of J's friends
Keith & Steve, the trendy but cheap Chinese/Japanese
noodle place, then walked to Kings Cross.
- Drove home, synced mail, committed the
bonobo-activation bits, Jacob reminded me to commit
the bits I added - sorry, did that, chewed mail, 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,
