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
- Hack week this week: nice, this is the week where we do
all those crazy, critical, but (somehow) never resourced fun hacks.
Where the team takes time off from it's load of paperwork, iTeam
formation, meeting attendance, conference-calling, union activities,
specification writing (and all such other things that make life worth
living), and focus on the tiresomely fun process of innovation. Lets
see what happens. Chewed mail.
- Mathias Muller-Prove's blog on User Experience related
topics can be read here for
those interested. Kicked off the latest OO.o build.
- Prodded metacity on the new
radeonhd driver - the 2D composited desktop appears to fly, yet
supposedly, there is no 2D acceleration; I wonder how it can be so much
worse with fbdev.
- Finished interview for opensuse. Lunch. Chat with Brady,
phoned BT to complain that port 6667 is being blocked for irc.gimp.org
but not irc.freenode.net. A fairly amazing experience with the
(off-shored) call-center: Ulrichi, apparently completely ignorant of
the basics of the internet, TCP/IP, what a 'port' number is, and so on.
Luckily her supervisor's advice was to talk to PC World - some great
insight there. After waiting for an interminable period, listening to
(not bad) music, they cut me off: go BT ! tried E-mail instead.
- Patched deskice's autotools a little.
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,
