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 extremely early, dealt with M. out of bed & being
naughty. First train from Newmarket, Kings Cross, Paddington, Heathrow.
Hacked at libgnomeui on SLED10 - interesting problems. Amazed by the
random non-Novell chap on the train in front. His loud pronouncements
of the form: "I am the PM ... we'll just find a technical peon to do it"
- what an attitude, what a partnership.
- Arrived, poked mail, spammed Brady & Florian, managed
to get a missing gtk2 SRPM via t-mobile (a triumph in itself), strange
DNS problems abound.
- Mikael has a nice
reply to my concerns wrt. gtk3; and it's encouraging to see a
continued commitment to incrementalism. Having said that, I'm still
missing a single concrete case described where ABI breakage is actually
necessary - I would say I'd like just one, but that's not quite
true. Some detailed examples of the effort put in when making a given
change to avoid ABI impact would be great to have: as a non-gtk hacker
I just don't have visibility there & it'd be great to understand.
- Chatted to a lady: 'Jamie' on the plane for a while, fixed
misc. back-porting problems, generated new libgnomeui srpm; watched
silly movies; finally arrived; caught up on mail, filed bugs. Bed early,
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,
