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
More mail catchup, attempted to organise travel more effectively.
Why did my extended family all manage to get born at times co-incident with
a peak in the conference season.
Fixed a nasty PackageKit / zypp crasher or two, and fired off some
patches to MeeGo. Managerie of phone meetings in the afternoon; pleased to
meet caillon there.
Re-wrote the repsnapper slicing algorithm in the evening; tragically
by removing some hideous bugs (a broken 2D point hash), I managed to make
slicing far more accurate, and yet pragmatically worse. Added an orphaned
point connector to get the most perfect slicer yet; sadly better slicing
breaks Logick's shrinking algorithm; hmm.
Fell over another joy of C++ - default copy constructors and the
pImpl pattern: wonderful to hide your implementation details behind a
private pointer; less wonderful to have the default copy constructor
duplicating that pointer, causing wonderful crashes via two destructors
freeing the same pointer.

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