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, snowed in the night, wrapped the babes up
as well as possible - packed them off to pre-school.
Phoned the travel agent to confess my mental absence
yesterday, booking a flight outbound from Brussels, when
I'll be in Paris: fixed that.
- Ron & Iris around for tea & Greek
cakes, good to catch up with them. Great to talk with
Lutz on IRC - nice that he's interactive. Booked hotel.
- Did a chunk of research on the OUString class,
generated lots more interesting numbers and pictures in
ustrings.ods. Interestingly, 90% of strings survive
less than 9 other string allocations; also 90% of
allocations are < 60 bytes. and ~99% < 100. Not sure
what that means, but perhaps interesting wrt. Kay's
- Interestingly (perhaps more so for garbage
collector designers), distance to previous allocation
of the same string, is fairly small, of course we've
freed most of these by then, and so re-allocate them:
- Robin & Jane, DT & Zoe around for
dinner, cell group - lots of people; jolly good, bed
late after cleaning up the grisly aftermath.
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,
