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, chewed mail. Nice, the OpenOffice
people have finally committed my CVSROOT patch, so there
is an 'ooo' package containing all the other packages, so
we can make it look and configure more like a single
- Fixed the bonobo toolbar icon bits to change
on theme change, just a matter of binning the cache and
re-fetching pixmaps from stock.
- Committed my gnopernicus patch, did some major
.cvsignore wrestling there too. Read some of gok, and sent
a slew of comments off to the authors of that.
- Polished, tested and committed the "don't init
esd if no sounds will play" libgnomeui speedup, doesn't
hook lots of events for no good reason too.
- Did some performance testing on
bonobo-activation-server, hmm - the load of all server files
takes 150ms, most of that in libxml / gzip libraries.
- Fixed gnome-mag again, missing pre-conditions,
posted the patch for Baum, committed my at-spi patch which
Bill kindly 'reviewed' - after explaining how ABI
compatibility works. Still no resolution to him not
trusting me to fix my own code, indeed - the issue is being
- Seems the master ftp server got broken by someone,
can't upload packages anymore. Bruce phoned to give directions
to St Catherine's dock, we'll visit them this weekend.
- Into Cambridge to pick up Julia from West Road,
and then on to pick up Robert from Brentford. To Hove quite
late. Sat in the garden with Mr Meeks ( his Birthday ) and
Auntie Barabara, Mum and Thomas. Lots of new things at home.
- Bed late, rather dusty the room.
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,
