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, mail; apparently the useful kernel ioctl for getting good
disk layout information: FIBMAP is only available as root (urgh), strange,
the xfsctl equivalent is (rumour has it) available to all [ some great
input from Stewart Smith ].
- Sufficiently irritated by treacle-like performance of mail
moving in evo in 10.3 to dig into the code / trace: some silly around
tree view management.
- Got my new year's Objectives into the relevant tool - at
last I know what I'm doing (or do I ?). Pleased with the interest in
the gnome-menus work, but sadly no time to fix all the breakage. It
will be a great data-point for my "OO.o is no longer slow" spiel
as/when I have the guts to write it.
- Nice, the configmgr refactor just got approved by QA, thanks
to Stefan, and Joerg Sievers. Went into an orgy of expense filing -
good, clean, tiresomeness: only an hour or so. Got fed-up enough with
evo. to create a patch & submit it, failing building it ...
- Out to watch H. swimming in the afternoon while J. prepared
the huge thanksgiving meal for cell group this evening (Julie is our
token American lady, giving us this excuse).
- Back, feeling a little ropey; huge meal, turkey coming
out of the ears, great to catch up with Pete & Shelly & their
vetinary problems: foot & mouth, bluetongue, avian flu etc. Bed
late, feeling bad.
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,
