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, call with Florian. I forgot to mention
yesterday (amid the bustle of interesting happenings) that he has
joined Novell. Florian (as CTO OpenDocument Foundation) has lots
of experience we want to bring to bear on our OpenOffice.org
development and interoperability efforts, particularly in the
writer core. Florian of course has contributed to OpenDocument
as a member of the TC, and of course I envisage that role
continuing, though no doubt he will also make a valuable
contribution to the OpenXML / ECMA effort. Either way,
it's great to have Florian on board, and back working to
improve OpenOffice.org. He'll be blogging soon.
- Woot. Petr tracked down the evil
Python crasher plaguing OO.o component registration. Hacked
away at some Mono / C# / XSLT code. Re-printed & faxed
updated expense (not a good use of time) - all for some
trivial adjustment, sigh.
- More hackery - got the OdfConverter at least
compiled and run-time crashing; good. Vaguely amused by the
various predicitions of doom and legal nightmares. RIP
Nuclear Power - killed by the heebie-jeebies.
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,
