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 at 6am, off to commute to London - wow, I'm glad
I don't have to do this daily; met Nick at the station. Read
cached news, and bemoaned the state of Evo's "off-line IMAP"
which could be better expressed as: "no-attachments off-line".
Will file another bug on re-connection.
Boggled at Man
Shot Dead in ASDA car-park - NB. shootings are relatively rare
and news-worthy in the UK: clearly the solution to reduce them
further is to arm everyone, including kids to the teeth with a
pistol and H-bomb (remember - it is not H-bombs that kill people,
it is people that kill people) - but I digress. What is notable is
the apparent police indifference:
"A man has been shot in broad daylight in a very public place
... those responsible have obviously no regard for public
safety.". Shocking indeed to disregard public safety
during assasinations. The Health and Safety executive should be
immediately informed. "Fortunately no other person has been injured
and we believe that the victim was the intended target." - how
positive and fortunate ! as long as they shot the right guy, who
was a baddy anyway - all is well; smells odd to me.
Arrived, met up with all the usual suspects - great team.
Good to see Dirk again, and meet Dave Stewart. Tried to
debug my udev oddness from yesterday - found the slow / waiting
culprit - in sysfs. It's pleasing to hear that Kay has properly
fixed my udev / blockdev device issue.
Kindly invited to join the Intel guys group dinner - much
fine food, company & fun. Up late chatting to Paul, bed.
