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 in the night, couldn't sleep, talked to
Federico though; good. Chewed over gnome-speech, Marc's
doing some excellent work there. Located his crasher,
heap corrupting bug, reviewed some of the code, posted.
- Back to sleep; clawed my way out of the pit
for breakfast with J', then to the hacking action.
- Uploaded my hacking guide with much help from
Federico, Chris Halls, Ken Fosley, Sander, Martin Hollmichel
etc. It is here
. Martijn Dekkers pointed me at ooodocs, how did I
manage to miss that.
- Chewed mail, committed the gnome-speech work.
Poked at the Ximian build system, pretty impenetrable without
reading the manual. All I want is a concrete recepie to steal.
- Fixed up all the at-spi copyright headers, Bill
approved and committed.
- Talked to mjmac and came up with a fairly sane
plan for the tinderbox. Gave Federico access to the ooo web
space. Yippi reports large vte speedups with my suggested fix,
which is great. Knocked off for the weekend.
- Drove into Cambridge to pick up Julia, lovely to
be there in the sunshine as the trees are psyching up for
autumn. Picked her up - wow, and off to Brighton.
- A long drive, J' did some stitching in the car
as we went which was ncice, listened to The Now Show
very good. This week we learned that if Saddam got the
pieces, and the know-how he could assemble a Nuclear bomb
within weeks. By that reconing, so could Radio 4 - which
might stop them fiddling with 'Thought for the day'. etc.
- Saw the parents, admired the newly finished
kitchen, had bread and pate, saw Robert's new 3D graphics
card, and 21" monitor, 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,
