Welcome, Flathub!

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 16:24:19 +0000

At the Gtk+ hackfest in London earlier this year, we stole an afternoon from the toolkit folks (sorry!) to talk about Flatpak, and how we could establish a “critical mass” behind the Flatpak format. Bringing Linux container and sandboxing technology together with ostree, we’ve got a technology that solves real world distribution, technical and security […]

Hello again!

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 11:45:21 +0000

Like all good blog posts, this one starts with an apology about not blogging for ages – in my case it looks like it’s been about 7 years which is definitely a new personal best (perhaps the equally or more remarkable thing is that I have diligently kept WordPress running in the meantime). In that […]

VP8 rumblings

Fri, 21 May 2010 18:13:24 +0000

As you all know by now, exciting moves from Google on the WebM project have lead to them open-sourcing On2’s VP8 codec to provide a freely available video codec for HTML5 content. Collabora Multimedia worked with Entropy Wave to add support to GStreamer for the new codec from day 1, and I was really happy […]

Telepathy Q&A from the Boston GNOME Summit

Wed, 14 Oct 2009 06:36:17 +0000

The first Telepathy session session on Saturday evening at the Boston GNOME Summit was very much of a Q&A where myself and Will answered various technical and roadmap issues from a handful of developers and downstream distributors. It showed me that there’s a fair amount of roadmap information we should do better at communicating outside […]

Boston GNOME Summit 2009

Wed, 14 Oct 2009 06:29:12 +0000

I spent this weekend in Boston for the annual GNOME summit. I really enjoyed it this year, although there were fewer attendees than previously it felt very focussed and productive. There’s some cool stuff going on, and it’s always great to catch up with all of the usual free software suspects in Boston. Some highlights […]

Today’s the day

Thu, 27 Aug 2009 11:04:35 +0000

If Collabora has seemed quiet recently, it’s because we’ve been slaving away on various parts of a really awesome project, which we can finally start talking about. Maemo 5 is coming! o o/ /o/

Empathy / Telepathy BOF at GCDS

Thu, 09 Jul 2009 17:17:51 +0000

Flyby blog entry. Been an awesome week, hope people enjoyed the Collabora party last night. Getting to the GNOME Shell BOF this morning was a real struggle, but I really like the way its going. We’ve scheduled an Empathy BOF for Friday at 15:45 in room 2-4, hoping to talk with folks about improving the […]

Top acts

Fri, 13 Mar 2009 22:45:06 +0000

I’ve been very impressed several times in the past few months when I’ve discovered awesome new top-like utilities. I’m probably being slow on the uptake and everyone else but me knows about these, but in case its not just me thats been stuck in the ’70s: htop A much-needed refresh of oldschool top, this still […]

This is a local mail for local people, we’ll have no trouble here!

Fri, 06 Mar 2009 02:39:27 +0000

“… all programs that interact with e-mail are broken in one way or another. Please be careful.” – Lars Wirzenius I seem to have a cunning knack of finding problems with configuring server software, particularly involving e-mail, where a) I can’t find answers in Google, b) most people I go and ask for help say […]

Auctions, Beards, Conferences and Devils

Fri, 23 Jan 2009 04:20:54 +0000

It’s the last day of the most awesome 2009 conference in Hobart, Tasmania. I’ve just witnessed the a room full of 500 people sit with baited breath as Linus wielded a set of clippers to shave Bdale Garbee‘s beard, followed by Bdale (with a razor with 3 more blades than last time he shaved, […]
