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
- To mail; X apparently doesn't like -Bdirect; must poke
at that at some stage. Interested to read in the Economist's survey
of business organisation:
glad I don't have to report to 2 people.
Nigel Nicholson, a professor of organisational behavior at the London
Business School, called the matrix structure "one of the most difficult
and least successful organisational forms."
Messrs Ghosal and Bartlett wrote in the past tense, suggesting that
companies had escaped from the matrix corset. But 15 years after the
article was published, many are still trying to struggle free.
- Cut-down & filed nasty export to PPT97 bug, Thorsten
pointed out cpd a
Cut and Paste coding Detector - should run that over OO.o; would be
amusing no doubt.
- Chased strange session problem on login, odd that my
~/.gnome2/session contains all manner of obsolete &
unusual things. Fixed an file / argument handling issue with the
quickstarter, 2 conference calls.
- Dish washer man came around to notice our dish-washer is
miraculously cured (intermittent fault vanished), expensive hobby.
Dinner, J. out (very tired).
- It seems I mistook Hans-Peter Jansen for Hans Petter
Jansson, and accidentally congratulated the wrong one on a recent
arrival; oh dear.
I only open my mouth to change feet.
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,
