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
- To work; pushed bits, sent follow-up mail, filed expenses
while downloading OpenSUSE 10.3 Alpha6. Called Nildram to check my
account. Hacked at representing indirect inodes in mid-file: luckily
in my (simple) examples indirect inodes are often linearly allocated in
the middle of the files they represent, at just the right point: neat.
- Phoned HR, friendly - attempted to extract the cost/benefit
analysis write-up for switching to new (actually exactly the same)
pension provider; should make an interesting read.
- Up late trying to fix the Dyson DC05 (not to be confused
with the DC10) - having
finally discovered there was only 1 screw to remove (on the top) &
4 under the wheels, got the thing apart. Tested the cable for continuity:
looked fine, still not working, tested switch, disassembled the motor,
tested brushes: an inch of carbon left on each, thermal cut-out fine,
capacitor looks ok: hmm. Re-assembled variously. Managed to get it working
when flexing the cable in a certain way: worying. Punted further work
until another day.
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,
