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, feeling pretty dead, and odd
dreams too. Chewed mail; my jdk version check got
committed by Ken; good.
- Poked some more at the acute nautilus
slowness in remote cases, even with XRender, when
not using 24bit color. Discovered icon rendering
doing round trips all over the place, loads of
redundant work happening. Quite what we do about
it is anyone's guess.
- Pulled the latest SRX643_OO, patched
it slightly, and started building again.
- Got knobbled on IRC by the Wipro test
tool people, who have problems. Having explained to
them quite clearly ~2002-05-22 why their design
wouldn't work well, had little sympathy. Gave a
few suggestions to workaround their problem.
- More misc. poking at things, unwinding
gpc code, it's licensing problems for OO, and
distrubutors (& forkers), and where it's used
in the code base. It seems only for (inefficient)
gradient rendering, and also for wmf import.
- J' home, went for a run - my knee gave out
after a short way; bad news. JPs, bed early.
- Read the OpenOffice
coding guidelines, so many ways to shoot yourself
in the foot, good to re-visit them.
- Checked out Mozilla's tinderbox2 code,
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,
