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, to work. Chewed mail. A longish
thread on how to make ORBit2 better with the evolution team.
Havoc helpfully suggested it was a weeks project to write a
(new orb) thing that was not CORBA compliant (in any way)
and would magically solve all the problems we have, activation,
lifecycle etc. Wow - and to think that many of us have been
working on these problems for years.
- Fixed the nautilus zoom number theme compatibility bug,
now we should have compatible themes between 1.4 and 2.0, and to
do the new number offset we have a 'number_v_2_offset' attribute.
- Did some memory profiling / leak detection on Nautilus.
Found & nailed a gtk+ leak. Looks like a load of leaks have
sprung up in ORBit2, set about hammering them.
- Noticed Kristian Rietveld has ported memprof to
Gnome 2.0 and improved it which is good. Fixed the ORBit2 leaks.
- Moved onto gnome-vfs and the nautilus list view,
both seem to have not been leak checked in a little while.
- Debugged the gtkhtml mail composer crash on startup
issue - whereby you get just no helpful messages and it dies out
of hand. Fired a patch off to bugzilla and Radek.
- Committed the gnome-vfs fixes, fired a patch at Seth.
Committed the nautilus bits.
- Emacs for some reason has decided my html buffer is
not going to accept close tags '>' with a 'Symbols function
definition is void: sgml-close-angle' - which is just great. I
assume this is the miracle of html-mode, strangely it works to
start with. Cut and paste defeats it.
- Daniel Geech came around to pick up the hoover, and
explained some things about bonds to me, had a beer - nice chap.
Invited me to his stag night.
- Out for a run with Julia, finished notching the 3rd
shelf, Natchos afterwards, nice. Then off to Cell group, an
interesting meeting - and talked to Ryan and Nancy afterwards,
just back from Greece.
- Bed, late.
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,
