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 earlyish, guy arrived from IBM to deliver
new laptop disk (this time Hitachi not Fujitsu), did a
little dance; demanded the last one back - with all my
data on it (hmm), not so good. Another happy SLED10
- Poked mail. Read the huge, long ODF related
write-ups out there. Wrt. cool sounding Da-Vinci named
plugins, I'm still convinced that wholesale re-use of
the OO.o filter code-base is (in principle) the right
way to go. Interested by Rick Jellife's
view, non-hysterical approaches dominated by facts,
accurate technical detail, and humour are surely to
- Poked at mail, rsynched stuff across to
the laptop again (it's starting to recover slowly).
- In exiting news today: we have some more
happy hackers to welcome to the Novell China OO.o
team: Zhang Yun, and 2 of his colleagues to join Jian
and Fong. Looking forward to some great work from you
- Hacked the gtk+ fpicker around (a perennial
favorite), knobbled a silly usability issue, poked Lutz.
- Hacked away at string interning bits,
the new 'static' refCount guard against wraparound
seems uncontroversial & pleasant, leaving space for
the 'interned' flag.
- Call with Doug, IM with Simon. Bed late.
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,
