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,
Bob Sutor's blog is interesting pwrt. the certainty of ECMA
approving OpenXML, the real question is what will ISO do ? Florian
pointed me at this nice ODF Alliance
Fact Sheet, really a set of interesting questions, laying out the
- Whacked some soda down the bath plug to try to shift
the irritating partial blockage; perhaps the fact that there is
only 4 inches of run off over a 10 foot pipe is related to the bug.
Waited, plunged enthusiastically, no obvious improvement, bother.
- One thing that jrb told me last week, that is most
interesting is that one of Carl Worth's focuses for Cairo
optimisation is OpenOffice.org impress: that's pretty neat, and
if so good news for OO.o.
- Read through a load of ORBit2 / bonobo patches that
Kjartan prodded me about. Lunch, team meeting, good call with
Mathias, internal guy with cut/paste problem phoned, hmm.
- J. out for a party with the lasses, leaving me with
3 babies to look after.
- Our (AMD sponsored)
report into optimisation opportunities in OO.o is now available here
it is only ~9 metric pages long, with some pretty graphs; the
time estimates & rankings are in highly mythical man-days.
- Finally wrote up a report from my travel and sent it,
grabbed a SL10.2 RC1 to GM deltaiso, and set the apply off - if only
I had threaded the right bit of that code it'd be 2x as fast. If
someone wants to integrate
pbzip2 into the 'deltarpm' tool, that'd make a lot of people
happy (some nice graphs on that page too).
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,
