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, lower back pain; hmm. Breakfast with
J', chewed mail, did a linc-0.5.2 release. Wrote the
ORBit2-2.4.1 release notes, wow we've done a lot since
- Committed my memprof hacked into a profiling
tool work, to the 'speed_prof' branch of memprof. It
turns out that to get libtool to sort out linking right, at
least on linux I need a
patch from James, to get the symbol name problems
fixed - the patch didn't seem to help; hmm.
- Fixed up gnome-mime-data to sort the types
alphabetically, apparently check-mime is the thing to run.
Got some of the mail queue under control.
- Noticed that
mirror.ac.uk was really neat, pulled various bits.
Merged some AIX build fixes for linc/ORBit2 from Laurent
- Binned the OpenOffice build, and started
again, this time hacking around the cunning -I/usr/include
stuff the configure adds.
- Phoned Dell to get them to come and take my
laptop away; the chap tried the old "Opening the screen
is user damage" chestnut on me, when I explained that I'd
love to not open the screen, but not doing that made it
somewhat difficult to use the machine, he relented a
little. They should really show their phone people a
computer occasionaly to remind them what it's like.
- Started climbing mount 'build system'.
Re-built gtk+ without the symbol stuff, now I get the
right things for the top 5 symbols, since they're all
pango - I give up. OO churning away, this time with
- Got my jail setup, fixed some of the stale
build scripts, frb said to commit, poked in my pristine
- J' home, went shopping, pasta, bed early,
leaving Thomas on the phone.
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,
