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
To work, lots of mail. Plugged away at windows branding
builds some more - what an hideous platform to build anything on;
Reviewed a patch from Kohei, and remembered Caolan's great
work with unit testing; knocked up a nice calc unit test for this
piece of code. Managed to get my build working, and nsis tweaks in.
It turns out to be by far the easiest to test locale specific code
LANG=pt_BR.UTF-8 wine LibreOffice.exe is
infinitely less click, re-boot, didn't work, click, click, ... than
Lydia over for dinner; plugged away at misc build related
bugs into the evening; interspersed with reprap wiring. got my ATX PSU to
give me power with a paperclip to short pins 15, 16.
It seems I had
foolishly assumed that when the DC motor drivers failed on the
extruder controller they would fail safe ( 'the smoke has already
come out' ). Pleased to see my first ever example of a small area
of glowing silicon through the (smoking) plastic packaging,
amazing; perhaps best to de-solder that before ongoing work (it
turned out that driving a stepper motor with two DC motor drivers
was a lame idea anyway).
