The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

X font path problems

Can you see what has been annoying me today?


I would Google +1 this - if I could figure out how/where my +1 button got to in my Chrome browser.

A perfunctory attempt to google fails to find out how to enable +1 in my browser.  I cannot even remember if +1 works in your browser for sites that don't have their own +1 buttons.

Out of Date Installations

I have wasted so much work time discovering and working around problems that occur on old installations (that I happen to be given to work on) but which are fixed on more recent updates to the system software.
