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 lateish, lazed for a bit. Amazed
how georgous J' looks in her 'clubbing' skirt of
yore; how did she get to me unscathed ?
- Jeroen pointed me at
Python/Bonobo/Glimmer combo - showing itself,
- Chewed mail; lots of it. Got my (fixed)
laptop back, looking all new and shiny - good.
Wonderful to have lots of screen real-estate and a
nice turn of speed back. Switched to 24bit color to
speed up nautilus.
- Set SRX643_OO building, wow ccache makes
a visible difference, just watching the compile zoom
- Discovered that it was indeed, simply
intended for Linux builders to copy the gcc
libraries into the solver when building; how duff.
Hacked up a small perl script to search the gcc
-print-search-dirs' library path to grab the right
libgcc_s, and stdc++ to install in the package.
- Joined the Sun team 'bug meeting', we
have meetings to bug each other - amazing; Listened
to Handle's Messiah with the privacy button on [ an
amazing invention ], stood up for the King in the
- Went to exercise my spectacular new weight
loss strategy - giving blood. Due to pain in the teeth
they assumed I had an infection, apparently the blood
just sits on the shelf getting meaner and meaner in
that case and it's not a good tonic for an ill person;
shame. J' said it was strange given how many people are
baying for my blood.
- Tried to poke our ops into getting a
sacrificial machine for a 'community' OO tinderbox,
- Poked at the complex gradient rendering;
wondered why it renders a rectangle before rendering
the actual polygon itself; very odd - debugging
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,
