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, poked mail, people. Dug at gcc / binutils,
it seems the arch-specific, total-evilness of collating &
generating a custom section by munging relocs in other sections
might not be necessary after all: which would be lovely. Perhaps
just by merging & sorting sections in the right order, one
per vtable, life will be good.
- Amazed by Sun's purchase of MySQL, of course one wishes
them all the best. Lots of people mentioned possible synergies with
OO.o base - which sounds like a great idea; unfortunately linking GPL
stuff into the LGPL OO.o is in general a bad plan. Then of course, there is
the binary, and (I very much suspect) not very backwards-compatible
binary database which it would pay to keep outside of your .odb files.
Having said that, clearly a load of work is needed on Base,
in particular I'd love to see (and most of the code is there) a nice
migration wizard (using a remote/ODBC connection of course) from
Access to MySQL (or anything else) using the OO.o front-end - with
the VBA work from Novell, and extracting the forms etc. that would
be highly sweet.
- Ran evo in valgrind for much of the day; chewed through
the output looking for my problem, filed a couple of bugs.
- Cell group in the evening, call with Suzannah. Kate &
Milo Robson staying the night, great to see her & discuss our
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,
