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; off to IRILL slightly late for Kohei's talk, but enjoyed
that - good to see some progress on the calc internals. Tried to sync. the
rooms on two floors' schedule, and adapt to last minute program changes.
Out for lunch with the Lanedo guys; back for more great hackerly
talks, and a pottage of misc. Lightning talks, some of them arranged only
minutes before we started: lots of useful grist there and great speakers.
Surprisingly pleased by the 'star field' effect from an elderly projector.
Gave my web-office talk with
video to make up for the lack of a live demo.
On to a curious party venue in the evening, did a bit of hacking
with Kohei, finally managed to draw my dependency thoughts onto a piece
of paper with Eike, caught up with Gabriel, code review with Lior, and
fun with Doug & Simon.
Incredible that hot on the back of blaming TDF for their
inability to monitor the security list (that their committers are on,
and are publicly
committed[sic] to monitoring); it is now insinuated
by juxtaposition that TDF is spreading unwarrented information.
It seems that this is related to Team OpenOffice's unexpected
that OO.o "can't be allowed to die" and needs to "continue
to be professionally developed", which looks like a distraction to me,
and is exactly nothing to do with TDF.
Interestingly the openoffice.org website (as controlled by ASF)
(until recently) encouragement to donate to "Our prime
treasury - Team OpenOffice.org e.V.". Opening up a dialog with
the very guys AOOo are recommending downloaders to send money to
might be a good internal housekeeping policy. Certainly it is not
TDF's problem whatsoever.
Stayed up inordinately late happily chatting with Fridrich

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,
