Just noticed that a random fairly lowlevel-dependency-affecting commit caused four LibreOffice tinderbox buildbots to kick off at the same time. Shorter green bars the faster, so as the Olympics has begun, the gold goes to Norbert’s MacOSX Intel box, silver goes to Norbert’s Gentoo box, bronze goes to my Fedora box… but drug test proves that its an incremental build, not a true from-scratch build, so embarrassing disqualification awards the bronze to Lubos’s OpenSUSE-clang box.

“picture size; don’t use this value for picture size”
“specifies a service which allows interfacing the core components of the core”, that’s clear then I hope.
More nostalgia. Some time around 2010 all the easter egg photos got stripped out of OpenOffice.org. FWIW…
Calc Team circe 2002 (?). What you used to get with =STARCALCTEAM(). This one is still available apparently in the last version of Symphony
writerteam Geordi Release 2002/2003 (?). This one was the last picture you used to get on StarWriterTeam + F3. (Yes, there was a sequence of Star Trek related release names.) I met mmaher, back row, second from right, at my brother’s housewarming earlier this year.
writerteam StarOffice 6.0 Release 2000-2001. This was the earlier version. Seeing as I’m pasted in at the back but mtg (front row, second from right) is present in the flesh it must have been made after March/April 2001 after I transferred from Hamburg to Sun Ireland. Finally met up with mtg at Dublin Zoo + Ballymore Eustace a month ago after a long gap.
The Easter egg police didn’t find them all. At least one of the most ridiculously obscure and pointless Easter eggs still apparently persists in all descendents of StarOffice in each exported .doc. Only mtg ever noticed as far as I know, and only noticed a few months ago after a gap of 11 years or so
The earlier “remove rude comment” police didn’t quite grok the light weight version of hungarian notation we use either, so my use of airlied‘s (then at least) favorite metasyntactic variable in it’s hungarian notation variant of nArse survived that cull and lives on in the rather crufty starmath/equation editor import code.
I miss =game(“StarWars”). If a demonstration was heading south it could always be recovered by launching starwars. “My god, they translated it to German” is the most memorable comment from some LinuxTag or other that I can remember. German was the only language it was in.
Did some tidying today, and inside the box containing my (vitally important) vt220 and (equally vitally important) Ximian Monkey I found some hard drawn class diagrams for the core writer classes. The back of the sheets have some unrelated text with a 1998 date on them. I think I got these from khz who probably got them from jp, looks like that class diagram style anyway. Here’s the scanned pdf for posterity
