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
- Mail thrash, it seems IBM are interested in helping
get LWP files importing into OO.o, our efforts to reverse engineer
the format are somewhat stymied.
- Was recently provoked by a criticism of the LGPL into
noticing -just- how successful it is, particularly among large
companies. ~Every application that runs on Linux links to the LGPL
glibc (it's hard to do anything without that) so IBM's DB2, or
Oracle's D/B would be notable here. Also, the number of interesting
companies shipping code licensed under the LGPL is large (some examples):
Microsoft [Interix SDK],
Netgear [my router] &
Tivo (of course anyone shipping a
Linux based appliance / device does), gave up extending the list,
doubtless there are a lots more.
- Poked at the Novell Developer Demotivation Tool (the
innerweb provides a number of such things), unsuccessfully. Then
Kelli's staff, then onto FATE - finally used the thing in anger:
hmm, mailed a set of queries off to Klaus & nursed my wrist.
- Hannah now scared of 'tomatoes (with faces)' under the bed,
a progression from the dragon in the shower-room, to 'Skull and
Cross-bones' images (amazingly prevalent), to Scooby Doo [ having
never seen it ].
- Dinner, hair-cut from the wife: "I'm sorry darling I
just assumed you had put the no. 3 on the clippers, you normally
do" - an amusingly severe/cold bit at the back of the head.
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,
