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, the Ntl people arrived, and fitted
a new cable-modem, after some protracted struggling with
their registration process, I managed to get on-line,
- 2000 Emails to chew, bother, red-carpet to
test the bandwidth - 75Kb/sec (Red Carpet Express rocks)
while pulling mail - rather better than that BT ADSL stuff.
Committed my at-poke work. Did a libbonobo-1.113.0 release,
with the new API for Nautilus acceleration.
- Co-ordinated with Anders, and did
bonobo-activation-0.9.6 and libbonoboui-1.113.0
releases, fired off the release notes to gcl.
- Pain with the Swedish Congrex people, it seems
they are determined not to re-imburse me for my expenses
going to their conference. They demand the original receipts
that I cannot give them without paying 40% of the cost myself,
and refuse to accept that I am a self employed person who can
be paid money. Of course normally you'd expect a conference to
book the flights for you, but this one - determined to save a
few pence seems to revel in wasting speakers time by the half
day with profligate abandon.
- Fixed a trivial 'crashes on startup' bug in
Nautilus, doing sillies with the desktop window. J'
arrived home, very pleased with the switch I'd attached
to the fairy lights over her bed; good.
- Fixed another nautilus bug and carried on
poking around with at-poke. Reported more bugs.
- Yvonne arrived and we had dinner, and sat by
the fire - which works beautifully without the excessive
pain of total cleaning each usage. 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,
