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
- Bean bags not all they're cracked up to be,
switched to a fluorescent yellow one out of sight nr.
my desk. Amazingly at 11am, still no-one here.
- Thomas posted
screenshots of the gstreamer nautilus view working nicely,
which is great. Now to get it on every machine, quickly.
Sent a thank-you post-card to Robert Jefford.
- Met Jody and Nomai, and saw Ryan for the first time,
a very loveable little chap. The gnumeric conference seems well
under way in the conference room.
- Fixed some more nautilus bugs. Jacob working away at
the tinderbox, trying to get a new snapshot out, last one on the
17th and lots fixed since then.
- Started cleaning my machine out to make space for
a new OpenOffice build, sadly my glibc reference tree had to
go, discovered an ancient dirty wine tree - woah.
- Read the
SLIM conference paper, related to the Sun Ray machines. Back to
profiling nautilus. Hacked away at caching the non-existance of
pixmaps, to save umpteen access' per throw.
- Jon grabbed me and we went out with the gnumeric
people, for dinner, a nice bunch. Talked to Mrs Hellan a fair
bit, she has a most interesting job modelling underwater
drilling gear which has several fascinating ramifications,
especially in the modern tethered / active positining deep
- On to bowwowski's [or sim.], for another drink,
head off to bed early - pretty flaked. Met a scientologist
on Park Street platform [ masquerading as a 'Dianetics' self
help proponent ], sadly didn't have the energy to
waylay him and talk, got a leaflet instead. Lovely to have a soft
bed and peace to sleep in. Slept badly - missing the other half.
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,
