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, get to the hacking. Little interesting
mail, fixed up nautilus' radio-buttons more elegantly, started
poking at valgrind, an interesting read indeed, with a view to
adding profiling support to it. Mailed Julian.
- Poked with gcc, gcc -ax of a trivial program is
blowing up with some horrendous rtl dump, will miracles never
cease ? hacked around at eazel's 'prof' which might be useable
on Solaris. Got it nearer ported to Gnome 2.0 => working on
- Apparently it's a feature that profiling doesn't
work with threaded apps; great. Back to analysing the strace
- Discovered that nautilus does a recursive search
over all the (remote) X windows, looking for some obscure KDE
attribute so we can turn off the desktop rending if we're
running KDE. Problem is - it was taking a second on my Sun,
not a useful feature IMHO.
- J' home, off for a run, nice pasta dinner, 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,
