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
Up early, mail chew, patch review, more mail. Wrote status report,
poked into a number of Mac accessibility related stack traces. Lunch.
Fixed a presenter view silly.
Poked at x86 Android cross-compilation. Call with Kendy, returned
from holiday. Dinner, worked late digging into code history.
Followed the Microsoft Office
2013 announcement; mildly pleased that they also have problems articulating
the scattered new features they have. Further pleased that one of their marquee
features is PDF import - you saw it in LibreOffice first. I wonder if they've got
to Hybrid PDFs yet (embedding the original ODF inside PDFs). Also interesting
is the abandonment of Windows XP - true it's only 25% of the PC market, but we
continue to build LibreOffice for Mac and Linux which together are less than that.
Of course, we've still got a lot of work to do to overtake on feature / function /
performance across the board, but it's a good race to run.
My content in this blog and associated images / data under

created by me and (unless obviously labelled otherwise) are licensed under

themselves, in context, in the battle for ideas, and I love fixes /
improvements / corrections by private mail.
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
