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
Interested in the TIOBE language comparison
As with all such things, numbers subject to interpretation; possibly
there are half as few searches for "C++ programming" since it
is so syntactically trivial (or perhaps not). I hadn't
realised that C was still in the running though - it may require
twice as many LOC, but it's ~twice as popular programmer wise ?.
Is there a deep masochistic bent in programmers ?
Interesting too to see the Apple, and Google languages
showing the strongest growth (alongside C) at the expense of
where C# is growing.
Slide-ware production. Amused by a NHB's experience
of an iPad: "She did, however, like the idea of a small, lightweight,
versatile machine to take on business trips. After taking the iPad for
a test drive, LW is thinking of buying a netbook." I'm still sold
on the "Swiss Army Kitchen Utensil" view of the iPad popularised by the great
Outside the Box talk (17 mins in).
Quick sync with Chen. Spent some time playing with gitk,
meld and so on, branched Evo. It's a real shame there seems to be
no easy way to tag a number of change-sets into a queue to cherry
pick in sequence later.
Poked at OO.o's nsplugin with Rene briefly, nice Debian bug
report about absolute symlinks, and the grot necessary to find and
bootstrap the environment from the browser there. Tried to persuade
IS&T support that randomly disabling IMAP on their mail servers
is mind-numbingly bad for business; making it rather difficult to get
at the much needed openVPN credentials too.
Quick dinner and drove home; worked 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,
