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, prodded mail gingerly not much; good.
Onto the gcc work, very strange things lurk here; diff -u on
the generated assembler quite fun. Discovered that at least
one cause of problems is some random element to symbol names
(from anonymous namespaces ?):
(eat that c++filt). Also discovered that an in-directory
configure creates it's own separate build-dir: host-...
critical for fast incremental builds; nice.
- Interview, lunch, gcc defying me. Wasted the best
part of an hour trying to track down a hideous hard-kernel
lockup when beating the system with valgrind / OO.o. It defies
the nmi_watchdog, and (worse) appears isolated to when the ATi
binary driver is in use: go binary drivers !
- Dinner in 15mins, another late call, story reading
for children, bed early.
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,
