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, to work - unfortunately the experimental
GWise POA (wal4-2) is dead, along with all my E-mail - so,
today might be quite productive with no E-mail, will have to
use the spam-overwhelmed & un-loved email@example.com
- Tried to do a little analysis on XSLT, of course
Google Trends is rather useful, eg.
XSLT vs. Eiffel, at least they are in the same ball-game,
Ruby kicks it's backside, Haskell is rather comparable, and
Cobol is gamely fighting XSLT. So perhaps my semi-rational
hatred of it can be justified by at least some market
- Finished the report with some help from Kendy,
switched to the nice new template and sent it, poked again
at the SfxNewHdl issue - seems in fact it implements a hook
for std::set_new_handler, and so is (potentially) useful, if
in fact it is a good idea. Removed some OS2 & ancient MAC
conditionals, cleaned it up, filed the patch, and poked RML.
Had a read of the configmgr code to relax.
- Dinner good to eat with the family again, and read
a bed-time story: "Khyberie: the story of a pony on the Indian
frontier" (good stuff). Coffee & web shopping for Christmas,
amazed by the Boden website
which could almost instantly list the -names- of all houses in
the street from the postcode, including ours 'Revel Cottage'.
- Found Gordon's rather nice
Historicity of the Bible slideshow, while digging for books
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,
