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
- Up early, chewing mail. Tried to commit
Arjan's canvas layout patch - doesn't seem to fix the
problem sadly, banged my head against it for a while.
It seems the canvas needs re-writing to not inherit
- Hacked away at finding various resource
reference leaks inside the ORB ... finaly chased them
all down ( it seems ); great. We now have somewhat
strong resource tracking debugging, excellent. Sent
a huge patch to Mark.
- Went shopping. Nailed the final few obvious
ORBit2 ref counting bugs, moved higher up the stack.
Moved some of the shutdown stuff into bonobo-activation
and sent a patch to Maciej, freed the base services
inside bonobo-activation, and sent another patch; hmm.
- Auspex pointed me to the
HDF format as
a possible compound document storage thing, no time to
look - this area is very non-productive it seems to me,
and ripe for standardization.
- Back to libbonoboui and control wierdness,
drasticaly rationalized the evil control frame / socket
mutual referencing issues. Building up a beefy patch.
- J' arrived back, time for Tea.
- Went out to a rather superior restaurant
that we often run by nearby. First rate food, fine wine,
excellent company - 30UKP total, extremely cheap.
- Back home, bed.
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,
