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, walked babes to school, chewed mail, call
with Alex. Zoe over for lunch, and to try and get some rest
from Patrick. Solomon popped around to get some equipment.
Spent ages chasing a vicious mutter crasher - a race
condition, with no apparent rhyme or reason, hard to reproduce
too. After adding a spin instead of exit (on a volatile
meta_bug, and getting a different
problem instead, and trapping SIGSEGV, SIGBUS, SIGFPU handlers
likewise, with nothing, then adding an atexit handler likewise,
it started to pique my interest, got it after interposing my
abort method - and discovered I had just
screwed up my
meta_bug version, bother. Fixed the
issue - it seems that combining
meta_error_push/pop is fundamentally unsafe:
don't do it. Eventually found it was a known issue fixed in 2.2.
Plugged away at various other bits; very sad to see
leave the company - what a loss.
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,
