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 early, babes to church; home. Played with new laptop,
experienced the umpteen-step Windows XP setup - presumably still
shipping, and having to support XP is a maintenance disaster in
a box for Microsoft.
Seems the new thinkpad (W500) comes with WiMax support -
which is great. Encouraged to see the diverse set of people sending
patches to systemd on the list; nice. Reviewed misc bugs / patches
while downloading SLED11-SP1 install media for new machine, went
through the 'Receiving' process; Clarity.
Spent some considerable time dunging out all the ancient
meeting requests that I never accepted, but just showed up in my
calendar. An unfortunate side-effect of Groupwise is that if you
don't use IMAP you have to accept or reject appointments in order
to de-clutter your inbox. Now I have to spend time testing the
non-IMAP SOAP protocol, which (sadly) means tons of obsolete
appointment spam - apologies if that was you.
Up late prodding at this extruder controller; seemingly
intermittent horrific lock-up, triggered by (who knows what).
Seemingly the processor looses its way, and goes into some hard
loop and/or even looses it's program - trying to debug dodgy
hardware without a logic analyser is somewhat frustratingly
pointless. Consulted wife for advice, ordered some new hardware
from MakerBot - hopefully they test their electronics before

In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Collabora, SUSE,

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