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, looked after babes while J. slept. You
know something is being learned when N. wakes up her mother with
Hello Dorgeous. To the mail mountain, hundreds of unread
personal messages, urk; hard to resign oneself to a ~week of
- Nice to see the new OO.o build-bot having an IRC
presence. By googling [ couldn't see a link on the OOoCon
official page (go Marketing !) ] managed to find the conference
- My hot picks (snarfed from the nice Kiberpipa site).
- Watched Michael Bemmer's talk: very interesting, it's
great to hear StarDivision emphasising reducing Barriers to entry
the priority of building community etc. Pleased with Sun's current direction.
Couldn't find Noel's VBA talk, or Fridrich's - both rather good. For
those with hyper-low bandwidth, you can get
- Tried to fix the HTML to not make the planet barf. Got mired
in some mess as to where pubDates should go & so on; utterly evil.
Desparately quested for a decent DTD link for RSS and got no-where, my
(apparently) valid RSS is unworkable, found this
urk; and (apparently) no DTD too; so xmllint --valid can no longer
save me; grief. Talked to jdub: Atom is (apparently) the sane format
here, and I need to use pyblosxom's static publishing.
- Cached thumbnails on gnome.org & switched 1/2 the video
links to another server; thanks Laurent. Knocked up column for LXF on the
cusp of missing the deadline, generated more copy for Mehran, urk.
- Bought some books on S/W management, lots to learn no doubt.
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,
