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, but not too early - good. Breakfast with J'
to the mail queue.
- Discovered the reason my machine was not compiling
quickly was that vte was consuming 40% of the CPU just rendering the
output from make - this is sub-optimal. export VTE_USE_PANGO=0 seems
to help, but not enough. Switched to xterm, it's not clear how to
fix it in the code.
- bugzilla.gnome.org down, can't do any bug fixing; not
good at all. Got back to making gconf-editor edit lists, since
memprof's sufficiently broken that it won't do it right - and it's
not clear whether it's worth fixing. Got gconf-editor working, sent
the patch to Anders, back to memprof.
- Decided to upgrade to 7.3 while I go to the bank,
discovered I paid too much money off the mortgage, and Father is
hoarding my savings book at home, doh. The trials of having more money
than sense. If only Todd wasn't on holiday for a fortnight.
- Thomas hacks away at the panel menus, hmm - what fun there
lurks in GtkMenu and GtkMenuShell, rained a lot, got cooler. Installed
- Popped into a foundation board meeting to go over the
~/RFP process; very positive.
- Sarah Joe, and Mark round for dinner - my Mother's cousin's
daughter & husband, had a fairly pleasant evening. Bed late.
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,
