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
- Mini lie-in, back to the action. Ran some
performance tests across Win32 / Linux and it seems the
CriticalSection primitives we're using on Win32 is just as
fast as on Linux, interesting.
- More configmgr hacking, re-factoring, removed the
UpdateAccessor completely, nice - aggregated some scattered
filed & inlined some bits showing on the profile.
- Attacked a couple of particularly silly
inefficiencies (beyond the locking) in configmgr, and managed
to get it from 25% of the time down to 11%, and total
3.7bn cycles to 2.6bn (writer startup, kcachegrind simulated
- Sat up & chatted to the parents, bed.
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,
