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
- Chewed mail, documental digging. Tried to work out why
the tiny xmlscript/test test takes such an infernally long time (a
handful of seconds) to start on a really fast machine: just to render
a hand-full of simple widgets. It turned out to be doing some impossibly
expensive operation on all fonts to satisfy ImplCalcMapResolution,
clearly a missing cache somewhere.
- Call with Christian Lipka - nice man; chewed over the problem
space; set to hacking something pleasant wrt. layout, burned away. Set
off for Sue & Clive's over lunch, got there.
- Poked again at the code, grief the awt appears to export only
a crippled get/set property interface instead of an introspectable
XPropertySet; how odd.
- Lovely dinner in the evening with Sue & Clive, 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,
