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 rather early, sucked mail. Committed my
gnome-vfs speedup. Wrapped J's presents, at some length -
in the re-used wallpaper from the parents, looks rather
good in fact.
- Found a horrendous head slapper of an inefficiency
and file descriptor consumer in gnome-vfs, just woefully bad,
killing big Sun-Ray boxes, by chewing up all the file
descriptors. Dispatched a patch to commit.
- Off to the station in a rush at the last
minute, got the train, met Julia at Cambridge station, deep
in her Economist, good stuff. Bought another ticket, and on
to LHR via the sandwich shop ( and some nice home-made crunch ).
- Read the Economist on the tube - amazing that 20%
of new (western) AIDS cases, are resistant to HAART drugs, ie.
some (real dregs) have been taking the anti-retrovirals, and
then having un-protected intercourse. Interesting that AIDS kills
more people per day than the were killed in the WTC.
- Got onto the plane eventualy. Watched 'Ice Age' a
rather light and watchable filmlet. Got down to hacking
gnome-session about so it doesn't need to use the canvas, with
some measure of success. Nice, composited whatnots, no need to
do a full gnome-init, lots of nice things.
- Arrived, held on the plane until Customs cleared
up, the through, picked up luggage, and on to the Landmark
centre. Met Radek and Radka, and pinched a set of their
- Off to the barracks in a Taxi with Radka, bed on
the futon very tired.
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,
