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
Boiled eggs and soldiers for breakfast with the babes. To
work, plugged away at the E-mail and patches much of the morning.
Avoiding expense reports. Lunch.
Got 'experimental' option patch done, and set-off a new
compile to test it; several hours even with the cluster. One of the
most curious things about Novell is that they pay their most junior
clerical administrators a programmer's salary; or - put another way,
they encourage us to spend a solid three hour block of time every
now a few times per year simply sorting, collating, and entering
expenses into a lameish web tool. Of course, the ideal is to
dis-aggregate that so it is not noticed, but somehow - on arriving
back from travel, the pressure to work through not only the mail
backlog from the journey, but also the exciting / new tasks from
the trip is too intense, and the tiresome admin inevitably gets
Build finally completed, pushed the new option, more mail,
knocked off for dinner. Prodded at UK law in the evening a little,
whole schedule knocked off track by administration.

In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my

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