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, interrupted before breakfast by JP needing a fix.
Worked solidly much of the day debugging this and trying to fix that.
xset -dpms can in fact enable screen blanking,
while without it
xset dpms 0 0 0 actually works -
interesting (or perhaps it was the
xset s noblank that
was my friend).
Chased a random mutter moblin crasher at inordinate length,
turned out to be a juicy CORBA / gconf / e-d-s re-enterancy bug that
had to be seen to be believed; a ~3 line fix that appeared totally
On to an exciting mojito issue, spent hours reading the code,
and trying to work out what is (not) going on with the network; found
a juicy NM bug on the way with resolv.conf re-writing & on-line
James grabbed me about an OO.o / screensaver interaction
issue, seems we missed an
--enable-dbus in our OO.o
compile, most odd - it used to be there. Bed rather late.
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,
