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, hammered on the Solaris box again,
miraculously gdb has decided not to give valid stack
traces at all, nor allow interactive debugging, not
helpful. Needless to say Xft + Gtk+ patch + patched pango
spews un-traceable warnings and bus-errors.
- Discovered my problems on Linux are most likely
due to linking against both libXft.so.1 and libXft.so.2, doh,
re-built yet more stuff.
- Gave up on fonts, started trawling the strace
log instead, Gconfd doing 500 calls to 'syslog' 30ms a
throw ~1.5 seconds, only ~300ms without truss though.
- Hacked up a nasty /tmp file cache for pangox,
seems to work quite nicely, avoids the evilness of handling
X atoms which is good.
- Picked J' up from the Stable in town [ cells
together ] and home to 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,
