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, interested to read
Game over for OpenDocument ? while clearly, ODF still has a good long
way to run, and one can't concur with their conclusions (pwrt. the general
merit of proprietary MS Office plugins, or starting a new standard), there
are some interesting insights on the ODF process. From my
perspective though this is all a side-show, the greatest tragedy
in the ODF domain is Sun & IBM's apparent lack of interest in compromising
& working together on OpenOffice.org, to grow the market for both ODF
& Free Software alternatives; whatever file format you choose - we
all need a better OO.o.
- Chewed mail, poked at some ppt import bug. Hacked on layout,
created a toolkit/awt VCLXMetricField implementation, just slightly worrying
that the 1st, trivial dialog to be ported is missing an adequate awt peer.
- Played with Kohei's nice python script to convert .src files to
xml, tweaked it a tad. More hacking on VCLXMetricField, re-working of layout,
added idle sizing.
- Cell group in the evening, a good showing.
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,
