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 late, fixed a couple of nasty linc bugs
causing gconfd problems, reported by Havoc. Chewed mail.
- Confirmed honeymoon hotels, fixed a stupid
alloca issue in ORBit stable, profiled sawfish to find
out why it is so incredibly unresponsive. It looks like
it's spending 50% of the time in gdk-pixbuf scaling
routines to do the strange border scaling stuff it
wants. Of course building sawfish is a nightmare,
and strangely running the version on my Gnome 2.0
doesn't show the changes I made - miraculous. The
whole thing looks like a shambles to me.
- Back to at-poke, more work - until I hit
upon a particularly pernicious and broken at-spi /
gail / atk bug that makes the tree inconsistant.
- Cell group, back home and phoned J'
very late. Worked up a patch for the at-spi reference
uniqueness problem, realized it was appallingly bad
shortly after sending it - drat. Reversed a bogus
Nautilus zoom text positioning patch before further
embarassment - not a good evening. 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,
