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
Mail chew; administration & form filling, built ESC stats.
The increasing volume of sextortion SPAM I get is quite extraordinary
and rather liberating given its comic lack of any basis. Interesting to
see the large increase in purchase-order, payment related scams too -
thank goodness our finance department are savvy (and run Linux Desktops).
Joined the LOT Network today; was
extraordinarily impressed and pleased to see Microsoft's unambiguously
good move of joining OIN - was wisely preceeded by joining LOT - to
avoid concerns about indirect trolling. Already had a great deal of respect
for Microsoft's engineers (having worked with some in the deepish past), now it
seems they have commercial people to match. If you read the MS Legal VP's
quote I linked - it is interesting that he traces their open-ness back to
open-sourcing ASP.Net in 2008. Miguel's Mono project combined with his positive
and constructive engagement with many good people inside Microsoft seems to
have yielded much sweet fruit in the end. Which is of course not to say that
the bad-cops did not play a role too, but - anyhow; most pleased at the positive
outcome for all.
Monthly commercial call, prep, projections, slides.

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