Tomorrow will end my first week as a Ximian employee. So far, I’m feeling pretty useless, having done exactly one productive thing the whole week. I’m sure I’ll get the hang of things eventually, but, you know, I’m impatient.
4th of July is on Friday. My family sort of has standing plans with some friends of ours who live on a lake. So, the girlfriend and I are heading up there tomorrow night. It’s always a great time, and I’m looking forward to it again this year.
Talked with a guy over email about the recent-files spec (he wondered why I was using XML), and then today with Federico on IRC (OO.o stuff). It has been a long time since I touched that code. I need to get it in shape so I don’t miss yet another opportunity to get it in the platform (2.6). Actually, by then maybe I’ll be able to redo it as a set of D-Bus messages instead of specifying the storage mechanism. Seems like it would be far better.
Everyone and their dog is hacking on dashboard. It sounds pretty freaking cool.
