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, Valentines day - cards & chocolates
for the darling wife. In deference to the Dutchess of Cornwall
it appears Hannah wants a Sister-ectomy, "I want to be an
only-child", "Don't you want Myriam ?", "I don't mind her
it's Naomi!" clearly the strain of being treated equally
as one three is harder with a small age gap. Luckily only a
transient aberration, they love each other really.
- Poked mail, updated to HEAD ooo-build & started
a build, cleaned up some lurking unused patches. Mostly thanks to
getting Noel (& Jian & Zhang)'s VBA work up-stream, and
also due to Rene's up-streaming efforts, we're finally showing
some decisive progress in shrinking ooo-build:
at least by some (vague) measure of
individual patch count. It's worth pointing out that of these
outstanding patches 346 are filed up-stream, the remaning 194
having various issues / being too controversial for up-stream
(eg. defaulting to using the system file dialog).
- Back to mail, poked into a bug or two and an
autobuild build error. Spamed the interface-announce list as
requested wrt. 'intern'.
- Lunch with heart shaped jam tarts, neat. Paperwork,
bother, chat with Miguel - unwound strange pyuno related
installation breakage in HEAD: UNO/python stuff appears to be a
perennial pain wrt. obscure component registration failures.
Turned out to be some unrelated environment change.
- Call with Patrick & Nat, managed to over-run my
pre-announced early stop by 30mins, frantic bathing of children,
reading of stories; Mary & Lydia arrived for dinner, Cell
group, bed late tired.
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,
