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
- Network flakiness to start the day. Carried on banging
head on Uno bootstrapping process. Eventually discovered that
type thing is necessary. (of course, re-using the existing install
& setup is the only hope: it's way too complicated
- More head scratching,
(libfileacc.so - a classic, < 1000 line shared library implementing
XSimpleFileAccess) buries an internal exception - "No content broker":
neat. Implemented 'InitUCB' - another 10 lines of twisted wreckage.
Wouldn't it be nice to have an
methods that 'just worked', and allowed an app to run from anywhere
inside that context.
- Called Nildram wrt. the net connection - 15mins in, got an
answer, 5 mins later, got forwarded to someone else - who 2 mins later
put the phone down. Luckily of course the connection had come up again
by this time; hmm.
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,
