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, both OO builds failed on some dodgy
header construction magic: echo #define "foo" >
magic-header.hxx, and then of course it's not there when
you include it - most odd. [ shell comment character aside,
this is tcsh ].
- Found OO.o has a 400Mb CVSROOT/history file
( or so ), not so good with CVSup, started mirroring the
- Discovered the debian system had no compiler,
or any development tools. After poking at apt-get, dpkg
for a while, discovered that 'tasksel' is the way to go,
- Committed a nice 64-bit 'Hammer' cleanliness
patch from Suse for libbonobo; good. Poked at ORBit2 - some
serious spaghetti locking paths in there, threatened Mark
with removing them.
- Managed to get a clean automated OOO_STABLE_1
build on the build machines, now for the auto-packaging /
- Poked with my web proxy settings, the NTL
'transparent' proxying is a joke, got a list of suitable
- Committed my ORBit2 locking fixup; onto
James' remote odd IInterface fetch bug. Hacked away at
it, it seems to go rather deeper than expected. Sent off
a patch to Mark.
- Hacked until 9.30pm, Julia abandoned me in
favour of some corporate dinner. Went to pick her up.
Strangely she sat between the CEO of Zeus and the head
of IT at Cambridge; interesting. Home, 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,
