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 lateish, prodded the mail mound; got my icecream
USB bootable build-slaves building (improved studio image to follow),
boggled at Twitter's (huge, graphical) "Twitter is over capacity."
whale artwork; not that I ever use the thing, so its no loss.
Another really nice presentation in the openSUSE
conference / LibreOffice track was from Jonas - who has done some
great work making the OO.o formula editor properly interactive.
We are merging this into LibreOffice 3.3 as the first 'Experimental'
feature: ie. features you can enable at your own risk, to try out
cool new things:
The great news about this experimental feature is that, (of course)
while insanely cool, it is not perfect yet. There are a number of easy hacks
available just for this piece: starmath is quite a nice, self contained
piece to get started in. Other sexy things in Jonas' work (apart from the code)
was a keybinding
to dump the scene graph to a file, combined with a watcher that throws
up a GraphVis graph of the
structures: very sweet. I wonder if there is scope for integrating GraphVis
into LibreOffice in some useful / WYSIWYG way.
Dug into some evil visibility annotation problem relating to
multiply defined abstract derived class type information afflicting the
split out MS word filters.
Drove to Bruce & Anne's, and re-assembled the compile cluster
quickly - cheap netbooks make quite nice, small network-attached CPUs.
Discovered that Gnome
Shell has a reall nice set of tagged easy hack tasks.
Finally noticed that Florian's LibreOffice slides
are up. Reviewed and merged some more patches, listened in for part of
the Project Harmony call.
First public LibreOffice steering call in the evening, worked
late on this and that.
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,
