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 very early, sent J' off to the City, hacked linc -
added it's own GSource for more efficiency, and as a precursor to
the new buffering API. ADSL connection totaly dead, evil software
issue; started pulling some Mandrake 8.1 ISOs onto a windows system,
the evils. Clearly one would prefer to use Red Hat 7.2, but one hasn't
recieved the boxed set yet, and one hears rumours of improved PPPoE
support in Mandrake; hmm.
- Read mail on the windows laptop; botheration; 4 hours
left to pull the first 2 install CD's. Discovered that John Winters'
LinuxEmporium takes card
orders - horay, ordered some cheap CDs at midday. Consumed time by
backing up all my mail to CD and switching to evolution fully.
- Installed Mandrake 8.1 over the top of Redhat 7.1 - with
some considerable trepidation. Mercifuly it was successful, since I
only considered the data on the server in mid install. A fairly
pleasant but somewhat flickery and slow install process [ an unknown
PCI video card ] - but it knew about the Speedtouch modem and set it
up such that it only needed an hour of Thomas to get it working -
great to see the Brother in action, and nice that they put effort
into supporting a very common UK setup.
- Sent the nautilus patch off to Darin; grabbed mail with
evolution - very impressed with the overall beauty of the experience.
