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, woke J' by 'writhing' apparently,
early breakfast. To work at 8.00am. Fixed my italicization
for Michael Sterett.
- Located the problem with gnome-cd not recognising
new CD's properly on Solaris, fixed. Discovered Metacity
chewing most of the CPU on my Solaris box, and responding like a
dog too not good. Committed my gtk+ memleak fix, committed
Shivram's patch for GtkTextView's cut and paste crasher.
- Slogged away at the strange 'right click on desktop
at startup crashes nautilus' bug. Found the bug in the end, a
very nasty in Gtk+ in the case that a grab failed. Sean slogged
away at making Nautilus more responsive for viewing images.
- When Sean had gone realised that using a slow http
image feed is an ideal way to test the setup, listened to the
new Moby album, 'Extreme Ways' is rather good. Located the real
problem, delaying outgoing oneway CORBA methods from the adaptor
until idle - which is blocked by the slow 'load' CORBA Persist
method, thus making the callbacks totally pointless and blocking
everything until the stream / file is loaded.
- Problem is, now we hit the evil sizing issue on the
GtkPlug / Socket that has defeated me for far too long in the
past, still now there is an incentive to fix it so we get nice
- J' arrived home, bangers and mash, - she discovered
the source of the long running strange smell in the fridge - a
festering cucumber that looked allright on the outside.
- Got my guitar, and wandered through town looking the
archetypal christian couple; beard & long skirt - walking past
the clubbers all legs and dizziness going the other way.
- Good cell group, despite my hapazard strummings.
Back, kitchen, bed.
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,
