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, missed J', work. Chewed mail, spent some
time reading the kernel entry points (arch/i386/kernel/entry.S)
to look for helpful sounding syscalls that would let me
authenticate an incoming connection from the local machine
belonging to a certain user, before accepting their connection.
Nothing obvious. Had a chat with Dick Porter on the phone about
- My Private Eye subscription arrived. More work on
limiting the size and of GIOP fragments arriving on a connection,
ultimately a futile gesture. Fixed ior-decode-2, continued writing
up various bits. Tested unix socket permissions on Solaris, they
work nicely it seems.
- Played with C# delegates, a fair enough concept, but
seemingly radically less than what I need. Discovered nautilus
doing a load of resorting of directories - rather odd, several
times per expose.
- J' arrived home, went for a run. Dinner, decided to
make Meringues. I decided to do a few in the microwave ( as
previously instructed ), and bet J' that mine would be better.
Promising signs as they visibly expanded, only to see them pop,
and as the microwave pulse went off they shrunk even limper than
before. I think a pulsed power control on the microwave is not
optimal for meringues, sigh. 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,
