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
- Read news; it's been a while - missed some amusing(?)
attempts at suppressing expression by coercion; death threats for
being Danish ?. Pleased with Boris Johnson's comment:
After all, who would question that Islam is a religion of
peace & love with a high commitment to honesty & integrity,
open debate & discussion of contentious issues and letting the
truth speak for itself ? I guess at least the Danish Bacon industry
will be unaffected.
"If you are a Muslim and your faith is strong and you believe in
God and in your prophet then I don't think you should be remotely
frightened of what some ludicrous infidel says or does about your
religion or any depiction he produces."
"I think we've got to move away from this hysterical and rather
patronising idea that we have got to treat the Muslim religion with
kid gloves and not subject it to all the same rough and tumble that
we subject other faiths to."
- Poked at mail. It seems Petr has unwound some of the
multi-distro ooo-build options problems which is nice. Great to see
Mathias Hopf's nice 1000fold speedup for a cairo/X corner-case hurting
- Battled Xgl for an hour or so before giving up; strace
is (as normal) broken - changing behavior & locking up X, and
apparently my card is not happy at high res either.
- Unwound a tangled vino/a11y issue on session start with
some nasty interaction; ended up with a patch that should shrink login
time a little, but just works around it - spammed Mark. Now I can
login, it's clear our OO.o/a11y needs more love.
- Phoned BUPA - efficient bunch seemingly. Rodrigo has a
nice plan for a similar win in gnome-panel (after a 1st attempt).
Conf call with Intel, nice work on OO.o happening, more a11y poking.
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,
