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
- Dug at mail. Committed the file / block parser to iogrind:
good 'oh. Chased some yast2-gtk startup buglet - once again, we badly
need the Desktop
Capabilities spec. (as killed by Havoc / MarkMc 3 years ago) - the proposed
alternative of waiting for ISV API perfection somehow not having born fruit
in the meantime. Which yast frontend do you use: gtk or qt ? how do you
choose ? (groping around several unstable, non-standard environment
variables), will there ever be a better solution (?) ... Perhaps I should
re-submit the proposal - we at least got DESKTOP_LAUNCH through last time.
- Dumped a full filesystem metadata, interestingly all the name /
inode / block positioning data for a 4Gb full Gnome SL10.3 Alpha6 install
consume only 18Mb, only ~3Mb gzipped: admittedly no permission &
meta-data there, but how much information is in that ? The question is:
why would we ever need to seek around the disk to read this stuff ?
- Filed ifolder3 bug. More iogrind hacking - nice file-system
model loading progress feedback, using a thread.
- Out with David Hill in the evening to Weatherspoons for
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,
