This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
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.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- Rowing 6.50am, despite the later agreed time people turned up even
later still. Coach was completely absent until got out of bed, our boat was
half inched by the women, and things went badly. Still, a learning experience.
Got back and let my mind sleep whilst watching Teletubbies, stopped before my
mind went AWOL and thought about gb lvalues.
- Recompiled xpdf with -g -O -Wall -ansi -pedantic and had kittens,
problem is trying to get my changes back into the xpdf distribution, indeed
syncing stuff at all is sort of hard, I wonder if there is a new xpdf release
somewhere with the bits I need.
- Discovered I had failed to commit the vital form modules for the gb
work I did yesterday; fixed that and added .cvsignore. Remembered to commit my
gnumeric changes that started my goose chase for the canvas bug.
- Got mail from Federico, it seems I have to re-write my fix to be
more general and to perform less well; heh ho, anyhow its a bad bug that one.
- Ariel pointed out to me that I'm a month out of date; and I thought
I was more out of date than that, but I fixed it anyhow.
- Struggled with fixing up implicit intersection and dependencies,
discovered a nasty bug in implicit intersection; re-implemented it. Need to get
gnumeric's VB support back up to date to help test dependencies nicely.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
