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 at 3am, not sleeping; Saw Eddie's
Euro announcement, good.
- It looks like Ronald Kuetemeier located
the problem with ORBit-0.5 causing problems for evolution
on the 2.5 kernel series, a change in getpeername behavior -
- Hacked away at ORBit2 at some length, got things
compiling cleanly, back to bed, slept in, J. and L. off East
to have a nice day out.
- Chewed mail, poked the galeon guys to see if I
can help them with bonobo toolbar widgets that'll simplify
their life and make things (pixmap) theme nicely.
- Spark to Martin Holmichel on IRC - a most helpful
chap, turns out my build problems are most likely to be
related to recent unstable OOO_STABLE_1 commits. Picked a
random 'known good' date, and carried on.
- It transpires that OO.o anoncvs will consistantly
refuse to give you an accurate snapshot of the past on a
branch; thus: cvs upd -r OOO_STABLE_1 ; cvs upd -r OOO_STABLE_1 -d '1 second ago'
will consistantly add and remove files that never changed;
so no way to recover an older version on a branch
anonymously. Freenode.net IRC flaking frequently, the
whole experience is one of acute pain.
- J. and L. back, lots of prizes to show off,
admired them variously. Talked to Martin, it turns out
that the reason everything is so (amusingly badly) broken,
somehow the same symbolic tag: OOO_STABLE_1 got used
as both a branch, and non-branch tag.
- Knocked off, mulled wine, nice meal, watched
Monsters Inc, lovely film. 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,
