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 at 4am, 3 hrs work on iogrind (and persuading git to
work; apparently git-pull via ssh doesn't like me, but via http://
(to the same files) it works ok: amazing): got DiskSim finally
working, and generating (hopefully) more useful numbers. Good to see
Federico back from vacation. Added a gradient in the disk block
view to show ordering. Breakfast.
- Filed bugs, chased bugs. Set off for the Griffin's,
hacked a little in the car - surprisingly good contrast on the T60p
even in the sun. Hacked the valgrind piece - dump file descriptors
not just names to handle multiple opens of the same file correctly,
dump cwd changes for correct relative path lookups.
- Hit an amazing bug in the car - the random screen-save
kick-in while CPU is busy seems to be a side-effect of the clock
jumping ~30mins forward while under stress: clearly compiling
valgrind makes time fly.
- Untangled some ext2dump problems & dump file-sizes
too (for edgy reverse-seekers). Stupidly did some optimising before
profiling, of course - no discernable win. Then callgrinded
valgrind itself (cf. README_DEVELOPERS), unfortunately no obvious
sillies; bother. Wife arrived to drag me from the keyboard: the
weekend has arrived, apparently.
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,
