This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
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. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Mail chew; project mgmt, meetings, code review, status
chasing, sync with Kendy & Miklos. Plugged away at input until
late, very hot. Bed.
J's birthday, presents at breakfast; off to All Saints - violin.
Becky & Steve kindly had us all, plus Markus & Zoe over for a
fine roast turkey lunch. Good to catch up with Chris & his lady.
Home, slugged, read Dirk Gently to the family,
Worked in the car on the way to Bruce & Annes; had a fine
time with them, relaxed, slugged, pleasant walk along the Aldeburgh
Setup Anne's new Alexa Show - an interesting device - E. very
amused by its jokes - eleven seems an ideal age for stickiness there.
Plugged away at hacking much of the day, sync with Thorsten &
Florian; missed BoD call while picking up M. and Alish - end of their term
celebration. Home, more work, Star Wars in the evening, put babes to bed,
J. out, N. at sleepover, H. with friends. Polished PCC minutes a little.
Mail chew, call with Ivan, dialog input pieces. ESC call.
E's final play at All Saints in the evening, surprisingly well executed.
Mail chew, sync call with Ivan. Poked at tickets, input and
J. and H. out to a Centre Parks Spa for a birthday treat. Plugged
away at slideware, and input bits. Esther & Lynn over in the evening.
Worked till 1am on a new input strategy.
Mail chew, code reading, team meeting, poked at some overdue
LibreOffice conference papers.
All Saints, played violin; on to E's leaving ceremony at All
Saints school - home, slugging, read Dirk Gently to the family; TV,
Worked much of the morning; lunch, out for a walk onto the
race-course. David over in the afternoon - relaxed, had a nice BBQ.
Finally got somewhere with copy/paste on iOS. A JQuery context menu
synthesizing fake click events touchstart, which fails to have the security
context necessary to access the clipboard (such access apparently succeeding
but in fact failing - why do they do that ?). Re-worked the code left &
Return of the Jedi with the babes, worked late.
More intense iOS quirk digging around copy/paste, hour after hour
of completely un-necessary pain inflicted by some browser authors. ESC call.
Plugged away at Node-JS based unit-tests of keyboard input quirks.
Up early, worked hard, got some builds out in the end; carried on
better with time.
Meetings, call with Florian & Thorsten. Mgmt call, worked late
into the night; couple of hours sleep.
Mail chew, worked much of the day, calls, writing regression
test logic until late. Foolishly watched the extra-long season end of
Mentalist by mistake.
Played Violin at All Saints, home for lunch, read Dirk Gently's
Holistic Detective Agency to the babes, slugged variously; Quartet,
chat with N. BBQ tea; bed early.
