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, chewed some mail, back
to bed. Up late. Reviewed new proto Gnome speech API
from Rich Burridge. Committed a couple of b-a fixes,
Mark prodded me into reading his b-a work.
- Discovered OO.o uses local variable scoping,
to provide mutex scoping - via a local mutex, most
interesting. Caolan's a great help.
- Poked at xmon, discovered that many of my
previous problems were caused by using DISPLAY=:1.0
instead of localhost:1.0 - since xmon just opens port
6000+N, and ':1.0' goes for a unix socket [ I assume ],
similarly you need to setup DISPLAY=localhost:0.0 first,
and (perhaps) xhost +localhost.
- Discovered great slews of XAllocNamedColor
methods doing xpm rendering; how odd.
- J' home, cooked, eat by the fire, 'Weeze
phoned for ages, wrote a status report, poked at bits.
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,
