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 at 7.30am, breakfast, bid J' goodbye,
she didn't sleep well last night, got to the work.
- Committed my profterm patch, factory back and
argument passing / parsing working nicely.
- Did a newer sexier at-poke release, with the
nice tree view co-herency stuff in it. Did an ORBit-0.5.16
release; Huw badgering me. Did some libbonobo cleanup.
- Wrote a status report. Released
libbonobo[ui]-1.117.1. Jonathan sent me a nice patch for
nautilus-tree-model that removed the need for my ugly hack
in the tree view code to make expanding work right, great.
- Did some timing trials to see if we could turn
off the ORBit2 fast in-proc method invokes and get away
with it - it turns out we can't.
- Wrote a man page for bonobo-activation-server,
poked around looking at various misc. bugs. Released
linc-0.5.0 and ORBit2-2.4.0, in preparation for the
impending Gnome 2.0 release. Made bonobo-activation die
if it can't find yacc - down to 7.
- Had another hammer at the 'crashes when you
click trash' bug, aweful utf-8 / locale encoded filename
issues. Stopped it crashing at least, although if you do
deadly broken things, you'll not work nosily still.
- Suddenly reminded I was cooking my own
dinner by hunger pangs. Put something in the oven, back to
hack. Merged Stuart's Mahjongg random seed management stuff
and did a bit of a dung out in that module, to think that
I was responsible for some of the mess.
- Hurried dinner, off to pick up J' from the
Arbury estate community centre. Found it easily, and her.
Off to Tesco to shop, got home, wedged everything into the
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,
