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 earlyish, chewed mail. Ordered presents
for the parents, it remains to be seen if they'll arrive
- Miguel finally let me know he wouldn't be
coming to the wedding; Martin Baulig is coming which is
a nice positive edge. Anders fell over the libxml feature
today that DV helped me work around yesterday, he's
accelerating the bonobo-activation startup by a factor of
2, which means a lot when it takes several seconds.
- Did a new oaf release 0.6.10 with some annoying
debug turned off this time.
- Booked the laptop in for servicing, apparently
someone turns up to collect it tommorow or Thursday. Fixed
some Eog build issues I wasn't seeing yesterday somehow.
- Closed / moved around a few bugs. Transfered a
bunch of wedding information to hardcopy - I have so little
of my life on paper, it's quite amazing. Pruned some oaf
bugs. Realized I hadn't done a bonobo-activation release,
waited for Anders' nice patch.
- Turned round Anders' patch, which takes
bonobo-activation startup / query / response time to
~630ms from ~1100ms, good [ parsing is more than twice as
fast ]. Polished some of the rough edges on the new code.
Nautilus directory switching 'feels' even faster with this
which is great.
- Did a bonobo-activation-0.9.7 release, had a
conference call with the (happening) Ximian Sun team.
Found and fixed the annoying eog bug where it idly
re-renders everything on focus out / focus in. It seems
Sawfish is still insisting on sending bogus focus out / in
events to applications when they are not needed.
- J' phoned, de-briefed on our days, lots of
little things to do and say. Phoned Sean to catch up with
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,
