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 early: poked at various things. Chronically irritated
by -yet-more- d-bus related fatal crashes caused by API mismatch.
It seems that having not taken my advice some years back to allow
some level of compatible API evolution, we're lumbered with a fragile
situation where, when people change the API, un-modified clients crash.
Since there are no hard (or in particular RPM) dependencies generated
for this stuff, you can trivially update just 1 half of the contract
and things start crashing for no good reason. Urg. How simple it would
be to mandate the toleration of missing/extra arguments - the type-data
on the wire, and in the method signature makes that trivial.
- Embarassingly Jeff Cai from Sun came up with a correct fix
for the ORBit2 deadlock I thought I'd nailed causing e-d-s hangs,
tested, expanded & committed to both branches.
- Ran the Xgl validation tests for the T60p - nearly perfect.
Dug at the gnome login script, poked at the nautilus CD recorder.
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,
