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
Still feeling dead, heavy breathing, lem-sipped; checked mail,
fixed an OpenSUSE / OO.o crash-on-start related to some GIO / GVFS
confusion. Irritated by under-performing calc save I did some
callgrinding, and found what looks like ~10% of the time taken up
in chasing (non-existent) symlinks in the 'store' code - what a
crock, usually back-to-back in batches of 4 duplicates, and of
course in the huge
IMPLEMENTATIONS/ directory with the
hundreds of components this is not good. Knocked up a patch.
Call with Greg, lunch, still feeling awful. Poked at Jon's
gdm mail - wow, he wrote the patch for me - nice, tested it -
saves me ~10seconds on autologin, great work. Discovered that the
nice interaction diagrams I needed to understand gdm are in fact
already drawn and in the wiki. Chat
with Jono. Cold moving to the chest at speed.
Charl came over to go out to the pub, but so wet, and ill
that we just slugged by the fire instead; really good to talk
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,
