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 at 5am, poked web / mail. Fixed some localtime to
gmt based accounting in my evily hacked perl HTML -> RSS
conversion script, hopefully now it advertises the right day of
the week for a given date.
- Petr did a great job packaging the OdfConverter, now
available for SLED10 at
http://red-carpet.go-oo.org; test docs.
This is of course a stop-gap measure, the goal is not a separate
converter (using XSLT) but high quality built-in OpenXML support,
re-using & re-factoring the existing Microsoft binary
filter code. Of course Mathias Bauer points out the Sun writer team
is doing some great work re-writing the existing code here to be
more flexible & elegant - read Henning's nice post about the
- Decided wearing the FUD Fighters T-shirt Simon
Phipps posted me couldn't be more appropriate today.
- Team meeting - an appallingly bad and expensive hotel
line. Met up with Kay afterwards, chewed over various current
issues in the code, lunch, and the afternoon. Read a nice analysis
paper from Noel. Interesting talk with Leon in the afternoon.
- Caught up all too quickly with the Teichman, Berkman,
Garret, Gordon etc. good lads. Synched with Miguel sadly in rather
a hurry, and off to the airport (of course flight delayed).
- Poked at Ricardo's latest yast-gtk work, looking really
clean & nice.
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,
