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 lateish; prodded mail. Really pleased to see the
project getting underway; having just removed the custom SEGV handler we
had just-for-CUPS to try to overcome it's behaviour when mis-configured,
getting a decent, well-architected, thread-safe (or async), modern printing
API on Linux cannot come too-soon. Better, having something that does sensible
logging by default, provides reasonable error messages, does hot-plug well,
and preferably is worked on by people with a low-tolerance for abominable
user-experience issues would be wonderful.
Posted hybrid PDF slides
for LinuxTag talks.
Annoyed by VirtualBox writing it's own settings in a version that it
apparently can't re-load (yet another reason to never quit it I suppose).
"Error in VirtualBox.xml (line 3) -- Cannot handle settings version '1.2-linux'"
is not ideal; each time I hack that file about re-create the settings, and
on exit they're busted again; I wonder why.
Pushed the latest set of Android fixes to master. More mail, and
Machined some brass bits with H. read some bedtime stories; watched
the 2nd half of the Lord of the Rings movie.

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