  1. , Yesterday I came back from the GUADEC 2005 in Stuttgart. It has been freakin’ awesome! The talks, the people, the organization… Simply amazing. I enjoyed every talk I attended: the Cairo talk by Owen Taylor; the Keith Packard’s talk on improving X; Davyd Madeley’s talk on the future …
  2. , Travelling: Tomorrow, after work, I’ll be leaving for Milan where I’ll pick up my girlfriend Marta, and then we’ll be heading Stuttgart for GUADEC 2005. Yay! Since Stuttgart is 500 kilometers (for youn non-metric-system people, roughly 310 miles), we’ll be going with my car - its waaaay …
  3. , I’ve sent a draft for a desktop bookmark spec on fd.o, and it got reviewed - mostly by the KDE people, that got already a standard way of storing bookmarks across the desktop. If it reaches the common approval, I’ll apply for a CVS account on freedesktop.org …
  4. , On Gnome Live there’s an ongoing discussion about recent files and bookmarks in Gnome. In the last two weeks I’ve been designing and writing a platform library for Gnome which addresses the points made on the Wiki, on Bugzilla and on the mailing lists (as I said here …
  5. , It seems that my work on a D-Bus perl binding was duplicating the (excellent) work of Daniel P. Berrange. Not that I’m complaining: I badly needed to understand how D-Bus worked, and creating a binding was the fastest way to understand the inner workings of D-Bus. Well, all in …
  6. , All set and done. After a bit of struggle between PayPal and my credit card, I filled the registration for this year’s GUADEC, that will be held in Stuttgart, Germany. Stuttgart, here we come…
  7. , After four hours straight of hacking, double-checking references, learning D-Bus and the intricacies of Perl XS programming, I have a preliminary draft of perl bindings for D-Bus. At the moment, they do nothing, since there isn’t much more than the DBus::Connection object, but they are loading correctely, and …
  8. , After being in Florence with Marta for just about two days, I’ve received the “go ahead” from the gtk2-perl team, and committed my patch for the GKeyFile bindings (closing bug #301171). Now you can parse the .desktop files directly in Perl. Hurray for me.
  9. , Gtk2::Recent status: Finally, the libegg/recent-files bindings for Perl hit the gtk2-perl CVS server (well, at least the authenticated CVS server; anonymous CVS should be updated in 24 hours). recent-files status: On a related note, I mailed James Willcox (the recent-files maintainer), asking him if this library is still …
  10. , I began working on a perl binding for the key file parser inside Glib. I have an implementation almost ready, albeit not usable right now. I’d like to translate a key file structure to the more perlish equivalent of an associative array; that is, I want to translate this …
