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
Got a set of nice mails about
Devel::NYTProf for perl
profiling; apparently that would be the way to go if the problems were
not so (relatively) trivial to find - thanks lazyweb.
Read bugs, followed mail, still pretty groggy; updated to the
latest factory packages. Chat with Vincent. Lunch. Poked make_installer.pl
again - saved another 2 seconds by the somewhat counter-intuitive trick of
turning a 60k entry array into a single string, and then running 20
(pre-compiled) regexps on it - instead of doing ~1 per entry, and
occasionally all 20. 2secs to 0.2secs is quite a win - I wonder why it
was so bad before; I had carefully compiled with
regexps. Anyhow nice to achieve at least some hack no matter how small.
Call with Kelli, then sync with Guy. Clarity. Dinner. Mary Rogers
came over to sort some fund-raising out with J. back to work for a bit.
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,
