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, poked at mail, out to the pre-school christmas
singing fest, rather sweet. Back, fiddled with uber-cheap USB
keyboard to get an install: eventually renamed NFS install mount
point to avoid hard-to-type keys. Call from NOD - network got
broken (somehow), someone fiddling with cabling: bother.
- Time to look at the configmgr oddness, found the
root cause, some over-enthusiasm in removing (obsolete except
for debugging code) accessors, attached patch.
- More code-reading in configmgr to attempt to find
where the old custom allocator was cleaning up things that were
not freed as part of it's operation. Committed configmgr debug
redux to CWS configmgrassert, Stefan kindly agreed to QA.
- Finally got an install on my small system; it's not
just OO.o that is slow here, YaST & co. are not such fun either.
- Big 'ole Mexican meal in the evening with Cell group,
13 people or so, up late talking round the fire.
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,
