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 6.30am sigh, time synching enough to
get acute jet lag going home tonight. Off to the show,
poked at my demos, met Sunil Saxena from Intel. Met
Kevin Lenzo from Cepstral - very interested in Gnome
Accessibility, part of the Perl foundation too.
- Hacked at gnome-mag and gnopernicus to see
if I could get the magnifier working in time; really
needed a net connection though.
- Off to see Scott McNealy, in an extremely
full hall (capacity crowd - turning people away). He did
a good spiel on Linux etc.
- Did my talk, the demos seemed to work, people
very pleased with the new evolution 1.1 features, showed
gstreamer embedded in nautilus showing the 'platrix' clip.
- Nice turkey carvery sandwich thing, did a
little time at the Gnome foundation booth, drew in some
of the crowds.
- Just leaving for the plane, when I met Danese
Cooper - talked to her about OpenOffice for a while -
sounds like a clued up lady; had my moans. Interesting.
- Off to the airport to checkin and hack, bolder
with my broken hinge now it doesn't matter so much. Poked
at the session startup profile some more.
- Debugged the 'gok' crash ( I saw in my demo ),
back to Bill's at-spi event lifetime changes, as fixed in
my (pending) patch. Remebered that 'truss -u' is like
ltrace on Solaris.
- Discovered gnome-ui-init doing a load of
sound event hook parsing / addition even when sound is
disabled. Silly, killed unconditional esd init
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,
