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
Dropped the kids to school, dug at bugzilla and E-mail.
Good to see Nat's Everyone
dials in blog - good sense written well.
Really interested to see The
IP implications of low-cost 3D printing published. I was
unaware of the existing, relative sanity of the law in the UK in
this area: still perhaps that is to be expected, cf. non-patentability
of Software / Business Process. Hopefully the US is similar, without
some "make your own cookie-cutter at your peril !" patent
policy on general objects.
Great to see that Federico tracked down and fixed the
gconf-dbus bug with missing notifications that was hurting
Evolution on MeeGo, nice work; fixed a nasty in the GConf
patch around lists; much better. Got a bus-load of excellent
bootchart2 fixes from Kel Modderman - great stuff.
Lunch. Prodded at LXF column vaguely. My machine hangs
make update-po in Evolution - nice,
the thermal management / software CPU throttling problems of
yester-year return (it seems); with a nearby desk fan - life
is better. Surely the problem is not sufficiently difficult
that we really need to take 10 CPU minutes to crunch it ? or
is it ? OpenOffice's help translation takes a similar time.
Claire came over after dinner, great to catch up with
her, and some of her interesting medical engineering problems.

It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences
