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, a day of phone calls, got some layout stuff done
and synched with Ricardo: we now have both v & h boxes, and the
canonical v/hbox test works nicely: except for the unfortunate toolkit
XLayoutConstrains impl.s, that appears to revel in picking sizes that
are too small.
- Submitted (later) OOoCon paper on layout (with Ricardo).
Call(s) with Kelli - good to have her back. Another interview. Fixed
the vcl button CalcMinimumSize method, and got a nice screenshot
finally (of course this is Ricardo's work too) the archetypal vbox/hbox
with permutations of expand & fill settings:
- Of course, the really fun problem is not the easy bit of
creating the layout, or the XML parser, but making it possible to
quickly & non-invasively retro-fit existing code.
- Very late night call; timezones: they suck.
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,
