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 at 5am, taxi to the airport - this way I get a
good working day on the plane. Checked in quickly, poked at
- Decided the future lies in re-writing eazel-profiler
to have memprof-like call graphing information. Emacs decides to
go into I refuse to let you type '>' in html mode,
with the miraculous 'symbols function definition is void
sgml-close-angle' warning, most irritating.
- Watched Monstors Inc. on the plane - rather good.
Poked at memprof to see how much code sharing we can squeeze.
- Realized memprof was the ideal base for the profiling
I want, hacked the eazel-tools itimer support into it in 10
minutes, fixed a bug in the profile method eliminator and bingo,
useful data [at least if you don't fork].
- Read the power of Babel on the train,
apparently the word for 'Sister in Law' in the pre Indo-European
language probably had a masculine gender, most odd. Discovered
that some languages use voice tonality to convey important
information, thus many lecturers would meet their death by their
own monotones there.
- Train back, J' picked me up from the station,
wonderful to see her again, even after a short time.
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,
