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, interested to see go-oo getting
hammered in a performance comparison.
A really interesting site Andrew has put together, and embarassing to look so
bad. A large part of the problem is with comparing go-oo's 'Universal' build,
(built with an ancient tool-chain so it actually runs on ~all Linux's) with Fedora's
nice, natively compiled version (using native system libraries); though of course not
wanting to switch O/S to test something is understandable - clearly go-oo runs rather
faster on OpenSUSE. Having said all that, for me - the most depressing thing is
to (re?)-discover Andrew's site, and see that despite the huge amount of work
Novell / I have put into trying to make OO.o faster, much of which is now
up-stream, we are losing the fight: Is OpenOffice getting faster
"In conclusion, OpenOffice.org is generally getting
slower with each release." - thanks for keeping us honest Andrew.
Poked Fridrich wrt. binutils versions, prodded yast2 settings.
Lunch, prodded architect some more, verified my stacked chart bug is
fixed in OO.o 3.0.
Hour long trip to see the doctor for the snip (or, as it turned
out the cauterise) - so far, not much more painful than substantial
dental work. In consequence missed most of the core-team meeting.
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,
