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 in the night, wrote a small test for Havoc to demonstrate
the dbus issue more repeatably, consoled baby, back to bed. Up lateish,
poked mail - started working back through the most critical non-dealt-with
pieces of the last fortnight.
- Poked at Ricardo's recent nice work; dug at IssueZilla, and
was pleased to notice the look of the web page has apparently improved no
end, as has the front page:
apparently some usability common-sense has been applied too: nice.
- Pleased to see the
Enterprise DB guys get more investment, great to meet Gregory and
Heikki at FOSDEM, hopefully we'll see PostgreSQL getting more love and
marketing out there.
- Conversely, amazed to see Miguel sounding off again on OpenXML
the danger being that people think his ill-advised, spontaneous, personal
prognostication has any bearing on Novell's position here; which is not
to support OpenXML at ISO.
- LXF column deadline landed on me unexpectedly, tasks appear
to collaborate with each other & try to jump me all at once, worked
at that for a bit.
- Screwed over by 'Fresh Mobile', nice - they activate their
SIMs in the shop so they starts expiring immediately, apparently to
screw over people buying in advance; hey ho, presumably I should have
simultaneously bought a complex financial instrument to hedge against
the mobile company being lame.
- Interested by Sun's latest actions with
NetApp - even the journalist notes that: Sun has been the aggressor
since NetApp’s initial strike. - the real question is: what makes anyone
sure that NetApp made the initial strike; that is not what they say.
Personally I'm a fan of using extensive amounts of open source code.
- Massaged slide-ware & finally sent it, ditto for column;
phew, tweaked Thorsten's blog feed setup.
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,
