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 latish, off to Owen's talk, rather amusing,
lots of historical insight into printing and typography,
interesting GUIs - hacked up his own presentation program
- Onto Karl Runge's ABIcheck talk, a rather elite
group there, quite an interesting talk about some tools to
help maintain a stable ABI. Had an interesting discussion at
the end over lunch about using gdb debugging symbols to
grab a snapshot of the system, including structure sizes,
vtable signatures etc.
- Then the GAIM talk, Sean Egan depressingly
un-repentant in his desire to re-write great chunks of Gnome
infrastructure put in place to help him - also known as the
"I don't want to depend on gnome-libs", even Owen panned
that attitude. Tried to persuade him to use libglade at
least, with mixed success.
- Then the closing address by Havoc, very
encouraging, a group photo, said goodbye to everyone,
and off with Julia to the barracks to relax.
- Onto the office via MIT (to drop a map)
to phone J's friend. Met Miguel and Chema, had a chat, got
tickets for MIIB, feeble, but entertaining.
- Back to the barracks and 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,
