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
- Bright & early morning; to work. Mailed the OO.o
performance list, Kay & Stephan with my 'push all exceptions into
their own library' & load that RTLD_GLOBAL, then link all modules
RTLD_LOCAL (amazingly sucky - but this is what the g++ exception
madness drives us to). Unclear how to tag libraries as being 'clean'
in this way [ only throwing/catching known-at-compile-time UNO
exceptions ]; '.int.uno.so' ? '.iuno.so' ? or something more cunning.
Of course dlopening the library to see how it should be dlopened is
- Improved my un-filed patches statistics by re-assigning
bits, fixing markup, and even filing a few bits up-stream. Upgraded
B9 on the laptop, installed it on another couple of boxes - looking
really nice; filed several bugs.
- Poked Xgl again - working on my Thinkpad / ATI M7 nicely,
but only for the difficult stuff: as long as you want alpha blended,
cubeoidal, sexy switching stuff all is well. As soon as you do
something in the (normal) head-on, single display mode - nasties
happen; poked David.
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,
