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
- Off to the summit down the Infinite Corridor
with J', Nat did a great starting talk; then dispersed. Off
to ThomasVS's gstreamer talk - which was interesting too.
- Out to the student union place across the road,
with Luis, and Gman for a cheese steak sub.
- Back, sat around, talked to Havoc in some depth
about where we go from here, development process etc. lots
of interest. Then Thomas and Andy about fixing how GStreamer
talks video sizing between components.
- Jim and Keith arrived, sat and chatted - compared
the (superior) Gnome 2.0 [ with Xft2, fontconfig and sub-pixel
rendering ] to the (inferior) MacOS X
- Keith said he fixed the "fontconfig re-scans all
system fonts with a non-system setup" problem - good. Lots of
font conversation. Nat lent me his wireless card, got on-line.
- Sucked mail, it seems Jody fixed the horrible
slowness in the control center problem, good.
- Went back to the barracks afterwards with Thomas
to do some hacking in peace, very hot indeed. Then onto
Fire and Ice for an ad-hoc food experience, had a
guinness with Andreas working on gnumeric, J' arrived. Eat and
decided it was a hot and noisy place; went home via an
ice-cream shop. Bed early.
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,
