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, chewed mail mostly dull. Very
pleased to see the economist accurately report the
- Discovered the root of my problems is
bonobo-activation pulling in libxml2, pulling in
zlib. Discovered the OpenOffice zip code should be
a 2002 entry for worlds worst designed library
interface. Why pass any parameters to any methods
when you can have ~50+ global variables to store the
whole state in ?
- Stopped b-a pulling libxml2 into it's
clients (doh). Spent a while merging Colin Walters'
gnome-vfs recursive copy up, and fixing the HEAD
gnome-vfs build [ some acute crack smoking going on
in there ].
- Re-wrote the OO.o installer to fork/exec
'unzip', worked first time - Halleluja, one big chunk
of broken cruft removed.
- Fixed the header delivery mechanism so it
does a diff before delivering to save huge swathes of
time on incremental builds in OO.o, filed a bug with
- J. home, went for a run, JPs, cooking,
bed extremely exhausted.
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,
