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, 7.30am - breakfast, setup the
server for Sean to work on some more.
- Tried to complete the wedding day entry.
Jaka has written a lovely debug patch for bonobo to
enable the ref tracking etc. at runtime - re-using
Jacob's ideas from ORBit2. Fixed / closed some bugs.
- Fixed the bonobo-activation chdir ("/")
issue, trivial. Paid my gas bill on-line,
- Sean arrived, and got started on his
machine. Struggled against the hydra of libzvt
foreground colour updating - found the evil missing
line, doh. Mailed Jacob a patch.
- Sean did a chunk of fixing the ORBit2
debugging code. Noticed gnumeric reading from a
Bonobo_Stream in 4 byte chunks, thousands of round-trips
very fast considering. Found and fixed the cache, a
- Poked at Jon's keyboard / component issue -
if only WM authors and component people worked together,
if only Metacity did viewports, we could make it work.
Dupped it for Federico.
- Spent a long time trying to keep libbonoboui
backwards compatibility, and discovered that the Gtk+
team screwed me without consultation, by publishing a
slightly different set of attributes as xsettings.
- Proposed the API change to the release team,
and spent a while re-working bits of bonobo to do it the
new way. Got approval, commits to libbonoboui, libgnomeui,
- Miles asked me for the ltmain.sh patch to speed
linking of pretty much everything.
- Julia arrived home wearing a beautiful new
(Tiffanies [ apparently ] ) necklace ( chosen by Hannah -
an appreciator of Jacket potatoes ) - very chuffed that
she'd finished & with some lovely flowers.
- Out for a run and things, Jacket Potatoes,
bed - clapped out.
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,
