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
Off to get the car serviced; admired the Prius - albeit
with it's tiny battery, adjacent to a large amount of
effectively wasted boot space: odd. I'd love a plugin Prius,
with a real battery; and 6 seats - waiting is the only option.
Plugged away at scp2 translation, remembered to write up the
split-build stuff for Ingo. Finally escaped for lunch, Bruce &
Anne visiting, quick lunch; banged out an LXF column on GUADEC, call
with Catherine. Annoyed by an Evo/GWise bug - chased that down to
a missing mutex.
Fixed annoying warning in orbit2. Banged away at make_installer
to rip it's guts about: frankly scp2 seems so unpleasant and unnecessary
for Linux systems, it seems of dubious usefulness. Discovered to my joy
the hard-coded magic of 'gid_File_Lib_Vcl' - which has to be there as
a magic template, and the tens of lines of cut-and-paste that proove
that it really has to be there in several places; bother.
Barbara & Colin arrived for the weekend. Dinner with them,
up lateish preparing H's cake and catching up.
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,
