I haven’t written about work things for a while, but I’ve been working on a couple of things, including Opkg (a new package manager based on the un-maintained Ipkg), and a PackageKit backend to use it with.
I’ve processed some more GUADEC 2007 videos, including most of the keynotes. I’m slowly getting through the remaining, but each video takes several hours to process, so please bear with me!

There’s nothing quite like the moment you finally crack a programming problem you’ve been working on for hours or even days.
So what is the problem I have been trying to solve that has kept me up so late at night? See if you can tell for yourself. It may not look like much once you spot it, but it has had me scratching my head for so long I just had to share it with everyone.
I hope I can squeeze it in for the next version of GNOME. After all, it’s an issue that has been present since the very earliest versions of GNOME 2.
