This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
SUSE 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
Mail, admin, posted ESC minutes, amazed at the unsual suspect's
uninformed backlash to RedHat's (to my mind) rather sensible approach to
the (horribly problematic) UEFI / secure boot issue. Of course, it'd be deeply
preferable to have eg. the well resourced Linux Foundation, or similar body
step in and run a signing program and evangelise it instead IMHO, but if
they or similar others don't want to do that, this like the next least-bad
thing to me. I'm rather impressed by the progress made by Matthew on this
front to safeguard users' ability to choose to manage their own keys.
Dug at holiday entitlement - some kind HR person reminded us
suitably in advance of loosing it: neato. Chewed through perl scripts
& auditing work. Chat with Kris, dug through VCL meta-files funkiness
Read the new corporate expense policy; apparently sticking reciepts
to A4 sheets is now fashionable instead of stapling them together.
Spent a while threading my git blame double checker, somehow
spawning 16 git's in parallel works really nicely on an 8 CPU machine,
great to do thirty minutes of work in under five.
Talked with Leanne & J. until late, missing H. out for
a sleep-over with Charlotte.

In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of SUSE, Novell, The
Document Foundation, Spaghetti Hurlers (International), or anyone else.
It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences
