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 earlyish, to work - re-booted the server,
and bumped the AGP aperture to 256Mb - superstition
- Spoke to Nat who couldn't sleep about all
manner of interesting things; clearly I should read his
diary more regularly.
- Poked at the OO loader, to stop it killing the
live directory in debug mode, and clean out cruft. Gack,
some combination of C-M-A and arrow keys seems to confuse
most keyboards into thinking C-M->backspace< has
been pressed, resulting in another dead X server - thank
God for screen. Added the DontZap option.
- Finally managed to get a fairly-clean
SRX643_OO build, wow. Phoned Auntie Barbara - my
accountant, have to stack the paper into the car in great
boxes and lug it home.
- Seemingly Ken finally got a sane level of
commit privilege in config_office, so we can develop that
at greater speed.
- Amazed by the tone of Nat & Miguel's recent
Dennis Powell interview; wow.
- Went into Cambridge to pick up Julia at 4,
got to the Doctors rather late, and missed him - very
frustrating, particularly for J'.
- Home to get on. Nearly finished the unofficial
OO hacking / build guide, test it on Federico overnight,
for release tommorow. Out for a run.
- Back home, phoned the parents to see if we can
stay the weekend, Bruce and Anne phoned, nice to hear from
them. Tried to catch NCC's pastor 'Kevin'. Bed.
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,
