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; switched the laptop disk into the
slower machine (again). The server had a load of extremely
odd screen corruption, most odd - re-booted it. Wavelan
PSU seems to be glowing slightly. Discovered my last credit
card bill from NatWest - "if you make the minimum payment
of � 0.00 and it ... interest ... next month ... � 0.00",
oh - and a 'Natwest Caller' advert as well - just what I
- Looked at another nautilus re-enterancy bug,
this one a side effect of the odd way nautilus windows
are constructed. OOO built - halleluja, but running the
installer resulted in typical oddness.
- Pushed all the OO libraries into the right
place, manually massaged the setup, ran setup - seg
fault; great ! now to work out how to effectively debug
anything in OO - given that all strings are made opaque
to the debugger by combinations of UCS2 and non-standard
- Zipped libstdc++.so.4 to f0_061.zip and
libgcc_s.so.1 to f0_062.zip and as if by magic setup
worked; wow, moaned about libmozabdrv2.so's
non-existence. Discovered ~/.sversionsrc stopping me
installing OpenOffice again, having canned the previous
- Updated my todo a little, it seems Christian
put it in the latest Gnome Summary. Poked at OO -
hanging after execing /usr/sbin/chkfontpath, most curious,
almost opaque to me.
- Chewed over the setup2 process on the OO list,
interesting - it seems it relies on StarBasic macros in a
master file to actually do the install. Checked out the
SRX643_OO branch, apparently this is where all things
- Tried to unwind some of the mess in the
SRX643_OO branch, grief - and I thought OOO_STABLE_1 was
- Into Cambridge to pick up Julia and
celebrate Sean's birthday.
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,
