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
I have always been comforted about the general state of
my clothing by the old chestnut about Ambulance drivers knowing
an Aristocratic victim instantly by the parlous state of their
underwear. Imagine my shock in reading about the sad death of Eugène_Terre
(a filthy racist) that he wore perforated green underwear (clearly
a key issue) - prompting a re-think of my sartorial strategy.
Whatever you think about IBM's right to sue anyone, at
any time, for anything, it may be rather a shame (or a good thing if
they drop the platform ?) for Debian. Last I heard, the absence of
reasonably priced and accessible s390 hardware made it necessary to use Hercules
to test and develop Debian packages: or at least to fix build
breakages there. I also, somewhat boggle at Pamela's
sudden enthusiasm for software patent threats: as long as they are
against 'bad' (ie. with some tenuous? Microsoft connection) guys.
Personally I have sympathy -even- for Microsoft when they are hit once
again by some patent troll for an exhorbitant sum, and have to make some
ridiculous change to remove some stunningly obvious feature - and wonder
why they keep propping up this broken system. When an open-source (though
I agree the QPL is really pushing the limits) project is under threat
surely our sympathies lie somewhere obvious ?
Triaged E-mail. Clarity. Lunch. Finally began to grasp my
way to more of a comprehending revulsion of the horrible inadequacies
git rebase when mixed with
Hopefully Federico, who most probably can clearly articulate
the problem will do so somewhere so it might get improved.
Call with JP, sent status report. Dinner, put babes to bed
and read stories. Tested, and submitted new Evo. package - why is
it that you always find lots more interesting problems just before
a deadline ?

It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
