Looking Back on Review Boardchipx86

Tue, 04 May 2010 09:53:00 +0000

Just over 3.5 years ago, David Trowbridge and I spent some time discussing the annoyances of the typical patch submission and code review processes in the open source projects we participated in and at companies, and decided to play with some ideas for improving this. At the time, we knew very little about what we […]

iPhone/iPod – The new standard mobile platform?chipx86

Sat, 15 Sep 2007 20:17:48 +0000

I’ve been living with a very basic Sanyo phone for many years now, and decided to finally upgrade. My main requirement was a real web browser, and the iPhone fulfilled that nicely. Besides, I wanted to be cool and get all the girls, and what better way to do that than to carry around an […]

Foo Camp 2006chipx86

Tue, 29 Aug 2006 09:21:16 +0000

This year, I was one of the lucky few who received an invitation to O’Reilly’s Foo Camp. Like many people, I had heard just how cool this exclusive get-together is, but I was nowhere near prepared for how mind-blowingly awesome the Foo Camp experience can be. I arrived in Sebastopol on Friday afternoon and began […]

Gallery Virtual Appliancechipx86

Wed, 23 Aug 2006 19:10:42 +0000

Virtual machines used to be all about managing your data center or server consolidation or running applications that only run on some other operating system. Lately, virtual machines have been gaining momentum in a new area: software distribution. This is actually quite powerful. Instead of a giving a user a complex set of instructions for […]

Lost my hacking mojochipx86

Tue, 16 May 2006 08:14:43 +0000

I’ve been trying to get out of this funk I’ve been in the past few weeks. It’s been far too hard to just sit down and code outside of work. I can’t even put together a release. A large part of this is due to the amount of work I’ve been doing for VMware as […]

Alpha channels and release scheduleschipx86

Sun, 26 Mar 2006 21:35:31 +0000

GTK+ and semi-transparent windows Mike Hearn wrote a blog entry on writing GTK+ applications that provide semi-transparent Cairo-rendered windows. He suggests a SexyWindow class for libsexy, which actually fits in with some of my plans nicely. More on this… someday. Galago 0.5.0.. Almost Galago 0.5.0 is about to be released. I’ve said this for a […]

Spice things up in your relationship with libsexy v0.1.6chipx86

Mon, 06 Feb 2006 03:04:10 +0000

libsexy v0.1.6 has just been released, along with libsexymm and sexy-python (mono bindings coming soon). It contains two new widgets, SexyTreeView (a GtkTreeView subclass with support for per-cell tooltips) and SexyTooltip (a tooltip that can have widgets packed into it). It also fixes a few licensing inconsistencies (the header files on a couple files were […]

Are we assuming users are really dumb?chipx86

Sun, 05 Feb 2006 21:12:19 +0000

Update: This is a general criticism of modern development trends. Despite appearing on Planet GNOME, and referencing a current debate, this is not at all specific to GNOME. The point listed below was more a maintainer screw-up than anything else. It’s not a debate on good usability, because everyone has different opinions on it, none […]

TuxPaint for the Nokia 770 – Packages!chipx86

Sun, 05 Feb 2006 11:04:08 +0000

I’ve finally gotten around to putting up packages of Tux Paint for the Nokia 770. I’d love people to test the packages. I know there are some bugs and slowdowns in the software itself, but that’ll be dealt with separately.. someday 🙂 You need to install SDL_ttf and SDL_image from the Maemo Library Catalog page […]

Pretty new notifications… And a release!chipx86Old urgency stripesOld icons and actionsNew urgency stripesNew icons and actions

Sun, 05 Feb 2006 05:28:15 +0000

I’ve been inspired by the December GNOME mockups. A lot of them are quite nice, and in the area of notifications, it had some good ideas on sprucing up the look and feel. So I present to you, notification-daemon v0.3.4! Along with the usual assortment of bug fixes, I’ve improved the style quite a bit. […]
