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; poked at mail etc. Extremely pleased to see Nat's pet project
get announced publicly for the first time at LinuxTag. There is some minimal
screencast (NB. it takes some time to load in the popup). As you expect from
the Friedman Franchise, it's extremely cool: if you build virtual appliances,
you'll be wanting to sign up to have a play. Conversely if you just havn't got
into this whole virtualisation thing, now is a good time to start - made easy
for you by:
Chat with Alex - who has an exciting plan around KVM & Xenner.
Filed my clock time set fix; dug at strange firefox / theme change crasher
issue. Found, analysed & filed a nasty file-selector crasher for
Federico; Lunch. Dunged out some longer term bugs, core team meeting.
Poked at a11y for tools running as root; apparently there is no good
way to do this securely. Probably the best approach is for the root runnign
tool to detect the user account for which it is running, and create it's
sockets in /tmp/orbit-$USER for them - with relevant permissions. Currently
connecting to the registryd works fine, but getting ORCA to connect back
Watched Howl's Moving Castle again, some great artwork - admiring the
castle (built by
a daemon) - it's tempting to make comparisons with various pieces of software.
There are some suspiciously over-engineered guns poking out everywhere, as
everywhere in the fine parody of an over-militarised society.
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,
