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
Call with MikeK, calc renderiing code reading, ESC call,
call with Marco, Felipe, mail & more code review.
Encouraged to see the Nodepad++
release. Obviously it is uncomfortable for rulers to have another authority
capable of questioning the authority of the state.
Mail; testing, code reading and more patch merging.
Sales & Marketing call, back to calc tile rendering oddities.
All-Saints band-practice; pleased to see Barak Obama's
"People who do really good stuff have flaws" commentary on our
and ambiguous world. Personally I have the flaws, but sadly they
don't guarentee doing the really good stuff. I'd also love all
(particuarly old) media outlets to have a cultural shift to
systematically provide a: "see this clip in its full context"
Mail, admin, tech mgmt call; more patch merging action,
up late on a client proposal.
Mail chew, poked at code - somewhat alarmed to discover the
wavey-red-lines under mis-spelled words being rendered with drawPixel
and each pixel working some amazingly expensive system-dependent
polygon caching mechanism noticably slowly; not great, fixed it.
Added some tile cache size management code to master online -
probably a good idea now its not on-disk. Some client proposal writing.
Up late, played at All Saints, Zoe spoke; back for a fine roast
lunch. Out to Cedric's East Anglian Air Ambulance fund-raising concert
at All Saints - H. played the organ; somewhat alarmed by the church mouse.
Out for a run with J. poked mail in the morning. David over
for lunch. Off to Oundel to see Major A Mansergh, and his lovely
family - its been too long. H. enjoyed playing the organ, while we
toured in the rain & enjoyed the company & tea. Home late.
Mail chew, fixed timezone issue in Online - to use localtime properly.
Lunch, Board call, customer call, patch review & merging.
Mail, lots of admin, chewed back through the mailbox to
some depth; monthly all-hands call.
Mail, TDC call, drove home, customer call, admin until late.
Lots of admin, tech mgmt call & minutes.
Sync with Szymon, started up the mail backlog cliff, wow.
Network somewhat flaky. Suffering from lost key-events (mostly
modifiers) somehow, most annoying.
Poked at calc rendering, got some nice unwanted deltas
out of adjacent tiles and diffed them - spot the jumping pixels.
Up late, off to Jennyfields Evangelical Church; good
Gospel presentation; home for lunch - out for a walk with M.
and J. slugged variously, bed.
Interesting sessions in the morning; flight to LHR.
Worked on the trains home variously. Picked up by J. in
Knaesborough - back to M&D's, H. and N. arrived back
late from dancing with D.
Checked out, moved hotel, met up with Florian & Thorsten
nearby. Caught up with people, an interesting tour of a local castle:
Nymphenburg, though more a palace than a castle. Back, had a drink
with Thorsten, dinner with a Ceph chap, wandered, bed.
Breakfast, some more 'byes. Taxi to Nice; flight
to Munich and the GSOC Mentor summit. Interesting Taxi ride
with Philippe from nexB, checked into the nearby hotel and
spent an evening enjoying the company of lots of mentors
and others. Among many others, really lovely to see
Up; another lovely buffet meal, and to the hub to
run a booth - demoing Collabora Office and/or Online to
passing Collaborans with updates on progress.
Enjoyed a little windlands and admired the great
work getting so many Steam games running under Linux with
the latest Vive, as well as great OpenHMD/Monado bits.
Relaxed & talked to tons of great devs and mgmt.
Team photo in a packed cinema, secured a solid bottom place
in the Tux carting championship; lots of fun.
