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
Training with Cedric - spent a while on corparate bits;
some overviews, dived deep into the writer code on a long &
amusing call with Florian.
Convinced I've hit on the future of programming: what we
need is a graphical programming language, and what better to implement
it in than OpenOffice.org draw using the flow shapes - we can save
langauge of the future that can run anywhere on the server, or the client,
in the meta-virtualised thin-cloud ! A great advantage of this might
be that no programming skill is required anymore to write an office suite:
just drag and drop. Complicated threading problems can be collapsed by
the GUI, the critical specification can be included as a multi-page
adendum to each flow chart element, and consider the sheer productivity
wins from the new language ... First of course, we have to re-write OO.o
using it's own graphical language, errr... or something. Long rest
in a darkened room to overcome buzz-induced madness.
Misc. calls with Peter, Kendy et. al. Slept the sleep of the
dead, modulo gratuitous awakening to deal with N., and stripping the
bed & washing a sick M.
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,
