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
Sync call with Aron, Kendy, Javier; poked at financials,
poked at patch merging, testing, merged a nice online patch from
1&1 to add a REST monitoring API.
Bit of quartet editing & re-arrangement in Musescore - which is a great tool.
All Saints, Simon & Norma back for lunch; played with the
babes, quartet bits, ferried kids around the place.
Out for a run with J. Put up some Ikea storage units,
Mentalistsed, bit of hacking & mail.
Mail chew; admin, calls, some patch review & merging.
J.N.M.E. out to Ikea for a shopping binge.
Mail chew, debugging, moved flights, demo preparation. Presented
to the team, lots of positive feedback. More code cleanup, train, flight,
drive home - lovely to see the family again.
Plugged away at proof, patch review, and locking investigation. With
a WOPI implementation, it is a little suprising to see 'unlock' do the actual
checkin, and not the PutFile; hey ho.
Out to visit Cor & Gerlinde in the evening at their lovely new
home & enjoy some Vegan food.
Wrestled VMs, authentication, firewalls & so on to get some
code building & the first interesting integration errors to arrive.
beautiful (in comparison) - curious.
Curious at the idea of research aroud empathy
being weaponized to polarize and de-rationalize arguments; some people won't
Perhaps ironic that a leading envionmental & children's advocate of
the moment is an Autist - an interesting world.
Up unfeasibly early, drove to Stansted, flight to Amsterdam, trains
to Apeldoorn, customer visit. Met the team, got hardware setup rather slowly.
All Saints in the morning; lunch, slugged & did some quartet
practice & planning for Demetia Concert coming soon. Out for a lovely
tea & watching American Football with Laura & Tyler.
Off to Sue & Clive's for some fine food, a wander across scenic
but muddy fields in the evening, a nice fire, fireworks and fun with the
cousins. Drove back late.
Mail, sales & marketing call, partner call, customer call.
Tried to upgrade my BIOS: already updated, followed the helpful
instructions from Benjmain Tissoires - as far as I could on debugging input problems;
evemu-record suggests the kernel is missing events - hmm. Poked at hid tools
JS protocol debugging too.
Customer call. Increasingly frustrated by missing keyboard modifier
events - modifiers randomly not working, keys randomly not showing up.
Patch review, ESC call, sync with Eloy.
Poked at calc row/height sizing with retina displays at some length,
eventually found the requisite scale factor & made things wonderful.
Started a document on pixel vs. twip sizing and rendering in calc.
Mail chew. Sync with Andras, Javier, poked customers.
Tech mgmt call, poked at gtktileviewer at some length.
Pleased to see Lubos' nice work on clang
Calls with Javier - various setup bits, sync with Kendy. Some truck
load of admin, partner call.
Rememberance Sunday - played bass & violin at Church.
Back for a pizza lunch, N. baby-sat S & B, while I&
C had a break. Played with babes a bit. H. arrived with friends,
M. had A. over - house full of fun smaller people - lots of fun.
Tea, dinner, bed.
