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, J. to AllSaints, provided on-hand
debugging advice for N. much of the day.
Tried to get memory trimming patch pushed; fell
over amusing CI fails due to day-of-week dependent code
in unit test at the weekend issue
up-stream. Makes a pleasant change from random breakage
introduced by me.
Always bad when you have no recollection of writing the
but the style shows it must have been you.
8am sales call, partner & customer calls
through the day, calmed down a runaway logging problem
in a corner-case. Implemented a memory / cache
trimming feature for inactive documents.
Up early; E. off to have her toe looked at.
Mail chew, chat to Miklos & Quikee, some digging
into memory management, lunch, sync with Paris,
customer call until late.
Up too early, mail chew, breakfast with Eloy
& met some happy users in passing. Checked out,
off to CS3, tried to catch up with some work, talked
more to people.
Enjoyed lunch with an enthusiastic Biochemist
interested in visiting rather than sharing data. Off
to the airport - Ryan Air ! - three plus hour wait
for delayed flight; what a terrible service. Eventually
got on a plane home.
Up later; breakfast with Eloy, worked on
slides somewhat, off to the conference. More talks
with people variously. Gave mine at the end of
Dinner with Eloy, sleep.

number of great partners & customers for the
afternoon. Out for Tapas in the evening with Frank,
Bjoern & Eloy.

quickly to see M&D dropping by from Robert's.
Lunch together, relaxed, out to help David S.
install the first of several veluxen in his roof
conversion; surprisingly heavy.
Home, chatted with the parents until late.
Up earlyish, off to R&A's for L's birthday party,
good to see lots of the extended family over there and play
balloon fights - with three-to-four small boys concurrently.
Did some relaxing hackery in the evening having
driven back; amazing what you find when you profile.
Out for a run with J.; a day of many calls, worked
on CS3 slides & admin in gaps. Tried an on-line / video
violin lesson for E.
Mail chew, thrilled to see our work with Nextcloud
and Deutsche Telekom around their great MagentaCLOUD announced.
This brings Collabora Online (and LibreOffice
technology) to another large group of users, and lets us
continue to invest to improve both COOL and the underlying LibreOffice
technology for everyone; more in Steven's
