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 a good chunk of the night / slept with a
little Naomi with very short painful breaths, teething
and with an ear infection - very sad. Off to hospital at
5am, not much sleep.
- Awoken from numbness - checked vtune builds,
better detail from instrumenting a few libraries, but the
tool unfortunately sucks for usability compared to
'speedprof' (or sysprof, or kcachegrind etc.); didn't manage
to find good call traces of where the phenomenal Win32
slowness comes from - however, hopefully can be extracted
from cachegrind on Unix by simple call count accounting.
- Set off a huge download over the VPN, packed
the house & girls into the car, set off for the sunny
south & my parents. A little hacking on the road.
- Conf-call with some great Sunnies, call with
JP / Florian, digging at documents. Got my 1st successful
install-set from the BuildBot [ sadly not from the canonical
SuSE-7.3+stuff ABI base ], but a milestone in itself; neat.
More phone dither. Call with MikeLeib. Dinner, more mail
- More work in the evening. Knocked up a dist:
rule for the
odf converter, now only 170k small.
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,
