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; poked mail & slides. Out to Dave Jones' talk on the trinity
fuzz tester: he had a great demo fuzzing user-space using the 'execve' syscall
passed tons of random junk instead of parameters - it was good to see 'cp'
crash but libreoffice start fine; interesting tool.
My ongoing general disapointment with Anti-Virus software in general
got another data-point: ClamAV claiming that wordml2ooo_draw.xsl contains credit card numbers. The
normal handling of this sort of thing is to white-list some specific 'credit card'
numbers - leaving a barrel of fun for the next person who will tweak the
Enjoyed Sarah Sharp's USB talk - what a bus-load of device-specific
failure; most internal mouse/keyboard are I2C to avoid the USB power-drain.
Quick sandwich for lunch; gave my LibreOffice talk.
Met Phil Robb after a nice UEFI talk, caught up with Dirk, fixed a few
more impress remote bugs; back to the hotel for some mail chew; pizza, call
with J. Read Markus' thought provoking blog on copy-left licensing. Bed.
My content in this blog and associated images / data under

themselves, in context, in the battle for ideas, and I love fixes /

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
