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
Up early, noticed the ice-crusher motor relay is the same as
the compressor one (and presumably far far less used), de-soldered
both relays, swapped them and bingo: a working compressor. Bench
testing suggests the duff relay is only good at making nice
clicking noises, rather than power switching; good.
Poked mail; pushed fixes.
H. ill, fridge compressor appears to have packed-in; spent
a while dis-assembling it variously; annoying. Consultancy call.
Lunch, sync. with Andras & Tor, code review.
Poked at the Daewoo FRN-U20DA in the evening ; no error
codes, nothing doing, compressor not running, but starter seems
ok, and continuity good. Brian over to help; jumped the compressor
all working well there in the plumbing section - good. Set to work
on the electronics; found the RT (Room Temperature) sensor, seems
to be fine; hmm. Ordered a new compressor relay: OMIH-SS-112LM.
Off to NCC at The Stable; did the kids work with Klara
downstairs - fun. Back for a pizza lunch, snoozed with J. for a
while. Pottered around with babes. Out for a walk with Sue &
Russell & back for tea. Put babes to bed.
J. out to take H. and M. to "Shine"; got on with some
plumbing bits with M. machined a new tap chain connector out of
aluminium sheet together. J. back, out to buy some marine plywood
with M. Lunch.
Knocked together some shelves for walking boots in the
porch together in the afternoon. Out to Sandy's birthday party in
the evening; nice to see Daniel, Adeline & family
there too. H. to Charlotte's for birthday
Up; out to NCC for Men's Prayer Breakfast; mail chew.
Partner call. Lunch.
Slightly scary with J. training in bereavement
counselling to see a calendar appointment labelled: Sudden
and Traumatic Death.
Hackery left & right, chat with Eloy.
Mail chew, customer call; built ESC bug stats, lunch.
Spent a while mending the admin console auth token problems
with http - fun. ESC call. More admin cleanup & re-factoring.
Off to Cloud Expo Europe in the morning; hacked on
mail and the Admin console on the train. Switched it over
to non-blocking I/O on the train.
Out in the evening with J. great that H. can baby-sit,
lovely to have a quiet drink & catch-up together.
Mail, calls with Miklos, JanI, Andras, Tor, Mike;
prepped agenda for next call. Commercial call, sync. with
Lenny, partner call with Eloy in the evening.
Mail chew, customer call. Consultancy team call.
Chat with Kendy; lunch, product call, AMD Ryzen arrived -
awesome maingear.com model - started the ultimate benchmark:
compiling LibreOffice from scratch.
Worked late; helped a partner issue; poked at
credentials on Admin Console.
J. to All-saints for Nichole's baptism, NCC at the
Stable; back for a roast lunch with Nicole; babes played
happily, relaxed with J. did a stamp jigsaw puzzle together.
Practiced quartet, girls singing You lift me up nicely
Up lateish; out to Kelvendon Hatch with M. to tour
the bunker; had a nice pub lunch afterwards - lovely to spend
some time with her.
Home; watched The Slipper & The Rose an
old-time DVD favourite with the babes, while hacking on online.
Worked late again.
Mail chew; a number of calls through the day; managed to
get back to Online / non-blocking hackery - good to see this
merged to online / master. Up until midnight chasing a silly
reverse lookup issue hurting lock-file creation.
Up earlyish, mail chew, couple of encouraging partner calls.
Lunch - ESC call, caught up with Philippe, worked late.
Mail chew, built ESC stats; finally dunged an expensive
but useless chair out of my office. Call with Miklos.
Pleased to see AMD's Naples
announced with video.
32 core /64 thread Ryzens, with 128 threads over 2 sockets; it is
really time to start (safely) using more of those in LibreOffice.
Mail chew, partner call, hacked on Online a little,
truck-load of admin, commercial call; dinner. Customer call in
Mail chew, consultancy call, quick lunch, product call.
