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 repeatedly in the night with Myriam, eventually had to sleep
in her bed, bother. Disassembled, and ground the bathroom tap seating down
with Father, added more greasy string, re-assembled: need a new washer it
- David Mansergh sent me a set of photos of Rupert: back in the
day when Ximian was a high-risk concern, Nat's re-assuring philosophy was to
keep $1500 in the bank, and if things went bad - to drop everything, and
travel the world on the cheap. It seems that since Rupert (prematurely?)
retired as a mascot, the kind folks at
Quantel have been helping him out along these lines, eg. on Safari,
- Poked at
cheese & my ultra-cheap webcam on SL11.0 - non functioning, since
it has never worked, hard to isolate why. Filed misc. bugs. Alp pointed me
which might be a good option for a clean/small/efficient dbus/C binding.
- Team meeting, call with Radek, call with Noel. Poked at VBA
pieces. Poked with Petr at the web-page for the GoOOCon2008: we decided to
open up the last couple of days of our annual team meeting to general
OpenOffice hackers, and we're looking forward to getting some hard-core
hackery cooked there:

Well worth reading the
wiki page - we promise it will be really boring to non-developers,
so we're hoping to attract only people interested in talking about OpenOffice,
it's code, build-system, that sort of thing. On the other hand, if you like
that sort of thing, and you didn't get a personal invite: please do mail me,
we'd love to see you. Of course, in the unlikely event that you can afford to
go to OOoCon
2008 Beijing, but not to GoOOCon2008 Prague as well (a cheap location)
please do go to Beijing instead, it's the official version; otherwise both is a
good option; Go OO.o !
- Robert arrived in the evening, stayed up talking to him, good
to see one's brothers in the flesh.
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,
