There comes a time…chipx86

Thu, 10 Nov 2005 23:56:19 +0000

I read this blog entry from a hard-working former Gaim developer today. It’s sad, yet so familiar… I’ve been holding back this blog entry for a long time, but given that I’m not the only one who has been mistreated, now might be a good time to describe what happened to me in what used […](image)

Just A Little Easier, Please – Networkschipx86

Tue, 22 Feb 2005 09:59:10 +0000

The Linux desktop has progressed quite a bit in recent years. Ubuntu, out of the box, mainly just worked. I was able to quickly set up a nice desktop for my girlfriend using it. It was really nice to see the little things all fit together. For example, when we took a pic with her […](image)

Panels Packed of People Presencechipx86

Wed, 13 Oct 2004 18:05:03 +0000

Calum’s blog post showing a bunch of talking heads on his panel is pretty cool. I have the presence part of this already done in Galago’s gnome-presence-applet. It doesn’t display a talking head, but it displays service indicators and first/last names. It wouldn’t be hard to make it optionally display an avatar instead. The messaging […](image)

Better than a kick in the pantschipx86

Wed, 13 Oct 2004 09:33:16 +0000

There’s nothing better than finally fixing a bug that has been a problem for over three months. Well, except finding a number of other bugs that would end up being hard to find down the road, and fixing them. Galago-daemon is now far stabler, and I would trust it to have my children, er, maintain […](image)

Picnic in the Park. Er, College.chipx86

Tue, 12 Oct 2004 04:53:38 +0000

So Sunday was the VMware picnic, which turned out to be a blast. Mainly because my little sister was there, along with my mom and one of my brothers. Although at first shy and a bit nervous, as my sister Jenna said, she soon warmed up and started participating in the events. The bounce house […](image)

Various Updateschipx86

Thu, 30 Sep 2004 08:31:40 +0000

I don’t blog as often as I should anymore. So, here’s another general update on stuff. I released 0.4 of the Desktop Notifications Spec tonight. No, people, it does not allow XML + CSS or XSLT or XEMBED or sound or anything else. It does support enough to be useful, without going overboard. I think […](image)

Keys be gonechipx86

Wed, 22 Sep 2004 06:39:30 +0000

Oops, somehow I managed to leave my keys on the table this morning when I headed to work. I didn’t realize this until I was at my door, just an hour ago. I went to the nearby Albertsons and picked up an eye glass repair kit to try to pick the lock, but it seems […](image)

Desktop notifications spec announcedchipx86

Thu, 16 Sep 2004 05:37:34 +0000

Mike Hearn and I just announced the first officially public draft of the Desktop Notifications Specification we’ve been working on. It has a few rough edges, but is there for the most part. The specification was announced on the freedesktop.org xdg-list. We’re looking for feedback and some implementations. Currently, we have a few projects who […](image)

Take it to the limit, one more timechipx86

Thu, 02 Sep 2004 08:00:55 +0000

Well, I’m half way through my second week of work (time flies!). I’ve got to say, I like it here, though it is a bit lonely. It’s hard not seeing my friends and my family every day, but things will get easier as time goes on. Fortunately, I’ve managed to find a way to get […](image)

The Beginning of the Rest of Whateverchipx86Wild West pic

Wed, 25 Aug 2004 17:02:02 +0000

I’ve been quiet here as of late, but hopefully that’ll change now that I’m more settled into my new home. I’ve moved to Palo Alto and had my first day at VMware this past Monday. So far, I have to say it’s a rather cool place to work. The employees are nice, and my team […](image)
