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; snow - and power cut knocked back the heating;
cold, adjusted that; packed babes off to school with J. in the
Dug backwards through mail; lots more patches merged over
the weekend, encouragingly; got some Windows credentials for
rdesktop setup, and prodded at NSIS on a machine in Provo.
Repeatedly appalled by the NSIs scripting language; any language
that requires this
macros vs. functions page, is unbelievable. NSIS: combining the
readability of assembler, with the linguistic elegance of Visual
Basic. Since there are virtually no useful built in functions - you
get to copy/paste big chunks of impenetrable (and unreliable)
assembler-like code into your 'script'. Words fail me to describe
the incredible life-sink that is NSIS, another day robbed from me
debugging this total, unsustainable junk.
Dinner, put babes to bed, back to the work. Back to
battling the evil NSIS, added ever more debugging output for
good measure. Did lots of admin, Clarity, status reports etc.
amid the hacking, pondered an LXF column.

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