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
Avoided mail by re-building evolution master. Poked at
a mono uri parsing crasher, odd. Prodded other bugs; system
recovery's impact on boot performance etc.
Horrified by another d-bus threading issue until I
noticed it was one more instance of not initializing the library
with threading enabled; why do we even need to do that ? with a
demand-launched I/O thread we can have it on all the time with
~no performance impact (like ORBit2).
Plugged away at obscure mono problems on Atom; nurgh.
Looked after poxy babes while J. took the others swimming.
Dinner at desk, worked late - stayed up for a MeeGo meeting
that (on arrival) turned out to have moved; nice. Worked on
Eventually, after a day of pouring over the code with
Paolo, Miguel, Rodrigo and Aaron, and however much hair lost:
Miguel located the cause of the apparent deep mono brokenness:
nothing to do with mono, just some genius 'optimisation' in
memcmp so it returns incorrect values in some corner cases.
Implemented and checked in a trivial memcmp replacement, and
went to bed.
