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
Slept in, antibiotics for prolongued sinus / chest
infection nastiness; prodded at gtk+ - still loading the xim
input method routinely, and parsing the huge X Compose file,
filed a bug, and prodded at it a bit.
Poked at Evo startup, doing a ton of ui builder work
on every start (why?), I should cut that down a lot. Lunch.
Discovered that the X Compose issue is hidden on
Fedora by having the xim module in a different package that
is not normally installed: sounds like a good approach to me.
Found that 25% of the evolution startup time was
burned loading configuration dialogs that are often never
shown; re-factored that into factory functions instead.
Dismayed once again by seeing libtool burn my CPU doing
crazy numbers of 'grep's and 'seds' re-linking things on

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