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
- E-mail, got possibly my longest life-history: 8000 words
yet from someone trying to persuade me to work on Gnome Basic, having
tried to encourage them to use Mono; nice try.
- Somewhat perplexed by 1st my
pipe & then a
socketpair not returning from
when the forked child closed their end of the pipe; I could swear it
should do that; fine on remote process death though. After writing some
dummy data to the socket, and using
shutdown I got the
expected behavior, odd.
- Finally discovered the huge packages causing the go-oo
backups to explode & remove. Got the quickstarter within inches of
readiness before the play-with-children alarm bell rang; left several
test builds running.
- Dinner, build completed, checked a number of bugs etc.
Investigated dictionaries at some length - amazingly it seems there is
a '.dic' format that is a binary format, containing plain lists of
simple strings: slightly amazing.
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,
