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
- To work, warning churn reported during the smoketest,
unfortunately it doesn't work unless you use <vituperatives>
EPM, added some direct make_installer magic to the mix, shame
make_installer can only be run from 1 directory, with a very
tweaked environment. Hacked a number of nasties out of the
smoketest script, and now it installs & runs beautifully,
sadly didn't find the reported error though.
- Re-worked the cppuhelper patch to please Stefan,
did battle with templates again; apparently it's trivial to make
simple things more verbose, and far more complicated with them.
- Did more gutting on configmgr, partially rationalized
the 3 types doing the same thing: TreeAccessor, TreeAddress, and
sharable::TreeFragment with some success, more readable.
- Dinner, sogged with the Economist for a bit, more
hacking in bed - scuppered by switching TreeAddress to a POD
pointer type: resulted in several uninitialized members (now
there is no default constructor), eventually nailed that.
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,
