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, to work. Poked mail. Boggled at the (only)
factor of two speed-win that comes from moving the dbus code
into the kernel.
Amazingly AFAIR, ORBit2 was the same factor
of two faster (in the same topology) in many situations,
despite not having any significant performance profiling /
optimisation since it was re-written, and without any such
tricks. How does it do that: just by being less lame, doing no
string validation, better iovec construction, having cleaner socket
code etc. (though CORBA object references do suck to marshal).
C'est la vie - we need to speed d-bus up, but is the kernel really
the right place for this ? Surely we could push the same match
optimisations down into the user-space processes themselves so
they could go direct for some methods.
Spent time thinking about lang-packs; the Power of Babel
to inflict pain is quite phenomenal. Back to hacking eventually.
Brief chat with Kurt, and JP, more writing up.
Out with Julia in the evening to a training course on
Christian Counselling, Zoe kindly baby sat.
