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 at 4.00am, the dreaded itch - phoned
J' who seems to have done well, made some friends and
useful contacts and is flying back shortly; good. Set
gal-2 building, back to sleep.
- Up later, gnumeric looks very smooth now,
I suspect the new icons since I'm not using an AA font.
Trawled bugzilla - found a vicious Gtk+ re-enterency
bug, re-assigned to Owen. Chewed some other bugs. The
reaction to at-poke seems mostly favorable; good.
- Closed a load of bugs that were in my bug
folder, phew that's a satisfying feeling. Spent a
while getting accessibility to be enabled by default
in libgnome with the right settings. Committed that
code, posted 2 serious issues with gail blocking
at-poke development. After fixing at-spi and
libgail-gnome finally had an automagically accessible
- Hit a show-stopper libgail-gnome bug, got
Bill onto it, storming away. Switched to fixing the
GnomeProgram module info mess before super hard
API/ABI freeze hits.
- Dinner and then off to cell group, had a
great time, lots of encouraging fellowship. Back,
phoned Tim Reid - long time no talk, lovely to catch
up, an probe the mysteries of GCHQ. He pointed me
IDPKC an interesting approach to PKI that I hadn't
heard of. And also
PRINCE for project management - although I get
queasy looking at flow diagrams of what other people
should be doing.
- It appears Bill has had a good look at
my problem, lots of minor things, but still no fix.
After consultation with the release team, committed
my libbonoboui / libgnomeui GnomeProgram bits re-org,
horay - now it looks / works logicaly and cleanly.
Better I got the first 2 points on my TODO polished
off today. Bill's given up on libgail-gnome.
- Bed at 1.00am.
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,
