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; breakfast & headed to the conf, bright &
early. Shaun speaking, great to see the IRC-bot you can ask to build
OO.o for you. Jan & Ricardo's nice layout talk, then Caolan's
- Lunch; short talk on the OO.o code, missed Radek's cool
GL transition meeting - thankfully meeting cancelled, so could attend
Julian's cool talk on new valgrind features: particularly the new
work that can pin-point long after the fact, where the dangerous
uninitialized memory that you branch on was allocated & thus give
much faster bug location.
- Tim did a great talk (and demo) on the real complexities
of complex text rendering: really fun - then some straightening out of
the ooo-build freeze / release process from Petr.
- Out in the evening with everyone for an OpenSUSE sponsored meal, beer; a
good time had by all - and great to meet new people like Michel from
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,
