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 8.00am, the dustbin men woke me
thankfully. Breakfast, get to some back-painless hacking
in my new chair - with luck.
- Chewed mail. Committed my bonobo-activation
work, wrote my status report. Fixed eog churning debug,
tried to get metacity to run on Solaris. Turns out I
need a patched Gtk+.
- Mailed BT Openworld to cancel the net
connection at home. Dr Silverstone rung, nice chap -
apparently Camp-pile-o-bacta' or somesuch, 95% burn
out normally - so, there goes.
- Fixed a rather daft libbonoboui mutual
association recursion silly. Stopped the nautilus
throbber being activated if the toolbar is hidden,
and added a chunk of logic to ensure that no components
could live on after nautilus has died. Even in nasty
cases - such as interrupted startup, everything (
including bonobo-activation ) quits cleanly now [
after 30 secs or so ].
- Added the '--screen' option to libbonoboui
to pass onto Gtk+, fixed the curious autoconf check
that was suggested.
- Found yet another cryptic manifestation of
the Composer doesn't start at all, problem - in this
case a 'gconf is broken and unresponsive' concealed
behind a 'CORBA_COMM_ERROR' message; hmm.
- Did an ORBit2-2.3.109 release. J' arrived
home, cooked a lovely dinner, played guitar for a while,
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,
