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, dived into some hacking to help the team with their
deadline; too fun - criminaly so; broke & re-assembled bits of code
left & right. Worked excessively late - nice to have a continuous
set of changes going in all night handing over from late-night Europe,
to night Canada to early morning Russia, Europe. Tired.
Coming increasingly to the conclusion that the HiDPI model of
adding a scale-factor at the low-level rendering layer, while keeping
the rest of layout, etc. working in a different co-ordinate space is
the best of all worlds. Apple lead the way, gtk+ followed, and cairo
makes it easy - even if the treasured shibboleths such as consistent
height pixel aligned grid rendering need significant extra lifting.
Not entirely clear how to do it through an integer pixel API though.

It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
