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, off to the market, back - potatoe peeling
at length. People started to arrive: James, Kate, Adam & Laura
in the 1st batch, Christian, then Thomas. Badmington, Ham, Egg &
Chips, fine meal, good conversation.
- Lost everyone after a while, rather early, slugged,
read to babes, washed up, bath, a little hacking afterwards.
- A while ago (ok so several years) I read Eric Raymond's
testimony (an excerpt): That day I was reborn; from a skinny
lame kid with a flute into a shaman and a vessel of the Goat-Foot God,
the Piper at the Gates of Dawn, the Horned Lord.. At the time
I thought how tendentious some of it was, but clearly 2 can play at
that game; so eventually I got around to creating a less elegant reply Why I am a Christian,
with some of the answers to questions I wanted people to ask, but they
didn't. Still need to finish up my random selection of anecdotes wrt.
other worldviews at the end; it took a long time, but this hacking stuff
has been preoccupying me.
- Hacked a little at the detection of missing opcodes in
ScTokenArrays (seems to be a flattened / parsed form of a formula).
Got somewhere - missing args detected, re-written & substituted
with a string.
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,
