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
To work - hack week, but lots of mail. Phoned BCD - glad they
booked my flights, albeit without confirming to me. Phoned Rentokil's
Tracy to re-explain that Furniture Village are still, not co-located
with my home; gave their real address.
Quick chat with Srini, more mail, told Clarity what I've been
up to. Call with Janneke about layout. Encouraging to see all the great
work happening while I'm away: must go away more often. Committed Mike's
ORBit2 root/a11y tweak.
Off to collect some spare laminate flooring from Julie, lunch,
sync call with JP. Poked at OO.o local linking speedup, which seems to
have bit-rotted a little.
There are times when you need a strong stomach to read some C++,
a classic example today; the somewhat pathetic non-existence of constructor
chaining (cf. C# eg.): INI_LIST
type macros; this simple 60+ line macro saves you typing all those huge
constructor function calls (most of them to a constructor, with at least
one fn. call in the arguments) multiple times: that means you can easily
create a leviathan .text section, without even trying hard.
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,
