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, dealt with babes, hacked in the
kitchen while colouring goes on. Today is the "Objectives
Management Tool" (OMT) deadline. In the same way that an
organisation couldn't possibly know what it's
purpose was without a mission statement, employees cannot
work effectively without a formal objectives management
process (or something).
- Put babes to bed, hung washing out, put
nappies on, back to the OMT. The OMT amazingly also
doubles up as an employee patience training device, with
added helpful anger-management experience features.
Not content with being slow & hopeless, it likes to
wait until you've entered a load of text before some
random key combination encourages the browser to loose
it all, stretching stuff. Isn't the web 'paradigm' so
powerful wrt. entering tons of text into text areas ?
Eventually got the nauseating self-praise entered.
- Merged, tested & re-filed Radek's 64bit
converter fix. Woke babes, lunch, off to Addenbrooks.
- Talked to J. for a while - hasn't been
sleeping much poor dear; looked after the children for
a while while she slept - Miriam looking better, and
less feverish thankfully, J. getting a temperature
- Back late, fish & chips, babes to bed,
stories etc. call with Mum & Dad, offered to come
and help: kind.
- Back to work. Poked mail, poked Guy, hassled
JP, poked Miguel / Mono guys on the evils of LLP64 Win64
vs. LP64 Linux, what fun. Toshok kindly pointed me at
as a nice sample cross-platform SWF / Mono app to demo,
neat. Eventually decided it's better to actually work
instead of hassling people.
- Isolated (thanks to Peter Vandenabeele's
persistence) the OdfConverter bug - to somewhere in the
ParagraphPostProcessor, and fixed it - another trivial
case of the WriteFullEndElement method not getting called
in Microsoft land (for whatever reason), prolly some
deeper evil lurketh here. Up-loaded
- Mother arrived late.
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,
