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 early, poked mail, relatively light: nice.
Knocked up an
odf-converter-1.0.0 release, and had a go with it.
- Train - off to Waterloo, arrived in the nick of time
for bagel & boarding. Hacked away at string interning again,
more analysis of the places where string duplication occurs.
Another big hit in configmgr, it seems lots of our duplicates
arrive from here, and come from underlying duplication in the
XML config data. Prolly should just intern every incoming
- It seems the Hilton La Defense is built inside some
sort of concrete cave: very strange indeed, also I have an
'elevator' feature outside my window - whereby people can go
up/down just outside it and look in: neat.
- Read some Gartner slide-ware, I didn't realise that
Microsoft's Software Assurance programme, combined with their
Office 2007 slip, means if you renewed your SA in Sept/Oct(/Nov?)
2003 - you paid but got no new version.
- Committed fix for vcl gcache hash shrink crasher.
Highly amused to read thing the gyst of "can't hack XYZ into glibc
because of very strong encryption of glibc sources", what
a nice metaphore for unreadability.
- Burst blisters on both heels from new shoes: nice ...
I wonder which effect is most substantial: heel hardening, or shoe
softening. Poked at Mono samples, and odf-converter performance,
it turns out there are a load of nice winforms sample apps, that
I've simply been missing. 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,
