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, crick in the neck - how did that get
there ? - chewed mail. Chewed mail, seems my hacky pango
font cache knocks 10% off nautilus startup time. Updated
the 'Nat' link, thanks to Jon Lapham.
- Chewed on some of the critical Sun bugs. Sent
Jaggu a patch disabling excessive syslog syscalls in gconfd.
- Struggled with some more nautilus 'custom'
widgetage creating radio-buttons without using radio-buttons,
and trying to repair the accessibility issues.
- Poked at an strace of a gnome-session startup on
my Linux box - amazed to discover gnome-settings-daemon doing
the most bizarre things, loading sound files, and processing
scads of sound lists, very wierd indeed. Fixed the ORBit2
build from my earlier breakage.
- Poked at the C/S-F10 keybindings stuff in
nautilus, really not clear where best to make the popups pop-up.
Fixed some a11y funnies in the location bar text selection.
- Onto nautilus startup performance again; good.
Discovered nautilus doing an 'eel_background_is_dark' averaging
every pixel of the background image, doh. Fixed that.
- Sean and Steve Hnizdur arrived had a chat, all
looking very promising. Bed early.
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,
