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, projections, planning, patch porting; performance win
for idle JSON conversion of sidebars.
Intensely frustrated to (minor) update openSUSE 15.1, and
discover it jumped thunderbird from 60.8 to 68, breaking all of the
extensions needed to be productive - (eg. making it possible to move
E-mail between folders without getting RSI from mouse-use), horrible;
downgraded with trepidation.
TDF is making good progress on a carbon policy, but I was curious
as to how writing more efficient software might help here. Crunching some numbers
with a 50/50 desktop/laptop mix and a 65% increase from CPU use gives
~10^-5 kg of CO2 per CPU second you're not idle. Multiplying that by the
number of LibreOffice users 2x10^8 (pace Sir David MacKay) to get a big
number, that's around 2 tons of CO2 saved for every second of CPU busy
time that we can save our user-base; go optimizers!

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