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
Excited to be demoing a new Ubuntu / Snap based
Ubuntu and Nextcloud at MWC Barcelona.
Also pleased to see AMD release Ryzen
Making 16 threads accessible to everyone - helping your LibreOffice
compiles (and load times of course too); good stuff.
Mail, financials with Tracie, call with Eloy; then
Ash & Kendy. Built ESC stats. Out to cubs in the evening
with M. - ran a code-breaking table with several fun encoding
Poked mail; sync. with Kendy, consultancy call. Out for
a walk, lunch. Back to financials / 2017 projections and calls.
NCC in The Stable in the morning; Tony & Anne back for
lunch, played a game; quartet practice, tea & read babies.
Up rather late; breakfast; slugged variously. Driven home
with babes and more Green Ring-ness. Relaxed variously & watched
Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves.
Up; worked through the morning on the mail and task
backlog. Out for a walk to see some ponies with the babes at
Back for lunch, and then to tackle the plumbing problems.
Attacked an amazing amount of congealed fat in the sink plumbing -
simply extraordinary; eventually had to cut the pipe-work out in
sections and replace it with H's help.
Relaxed in the evening with some fine food. Couldn't
sleep, hacked on socket code instead.
Poked at socket code a lot in the morning; drove to Aldeburgh
with the family - listened to the Green Ring Conspiracy in the
car. Chat with Philippe, ESC call. More hackery.
Awoke again to the dulcet tones of the neighbours extension
being drilled / compacted / etc. Hey ho - they get to enjoy our
early morning piano practice I suppose.
Built ESC stats. Most encouraged to see that the German
comment count has dropped by ~10% in the first two weeks of
February - ~320 lines fewer (of 3600) thanks to:
Johnny M, Michael Stahl (RedHat), Katarina Behrens (CIB), and
Lukas Röllin - wonderful.
Sync. with Ash; interview in the evening.
Nice set of Valentines Day cards for the whole family;
dug away at drear contract review much of the day.
Watched and fast-forwarded some James Bond for H. and N.
in the evening. Hacked until late on improved non-blocking socket
Up lateish; babes on half term holiday - team meetings;
E-mail, code review with Ash. E-mail deluge, board call,
chase Cyber Essentials certification; dinner, more paperwork.
Overslept vigorously, to the stable for NCC; Claire explained
Ephesians 1 well - helpful; back foor lunch. Off to pick up littlies
but too late for the service. Lots of stories. Played with them in the
afternoon; stories, bed.
Up very late indeed, slugged in bed chatting to J. &
bigger babes. Late breakfast, H. out swimming with Alex, Elise &
H?. Spent my time mending the toilet - new float valve is much
larger than the previous one - requiring odd angles, silicone
bodgery and worse.
Out for a walk with J. on the heath - nice. Swimmers home,
for a Bourne movie with N. followed by tea & card games. Dropped
Alex home. Put babes to bed.
Mail thrash much of the day; caught up with Kendy before
he left for vacation; sync. with Ash. Dropped E. M. and Kelsey at
Mail chew, admin, contract review, built ESC stats rather
late; ESC call. Out to H.'s GCSE choices day - interesting stuff.
Up lateish; mail chew; to work ! H. feverish and
at home; worked away at mail by the fire with her a bit.
Beta Co-working; actually got some hacking done:
whoot, though very trivial. Worked away on the train, got
a few patches CI'd and included between network black-spots.
Lovely to be home again and see four babes, and one
