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
- Poked at
Ulteo's on-line OO.o - unfortunately, it requires Write once run
anywhere (TM) technology - which frankly doesn't. Battled the latest,
Sun java dependency for a while - with no joy at all, installed RPMs on the
console, what fun. The screenshots appear to suggest it's an over-hyped
Java/VNC type solution.
- Mail pokeage. In attempting to debug an evolution hang,
discovered a whole slew of interesting things relating to debuggability,
debuginfo, e-d-s memory usage, and a deadlock: nice. Hopefully my e-d-s
memory usage woes are simply down to a 60second timeout adding a thread to
query the groupwise calendar: hence "Thread 196" and an inflated apparent
memory usage. The deadlock is yet more curious though, strange.
- More mail, lunch. Spent a while chasing intense sqllite locking
action in zypper, re-built without the extremely verbose kernel locking,
and once again - proof that strace is not your friend wrt. performance:
not significantly faster (should believe my own presentations); bother.
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,
