Monday 19th August 2013: 9.34pm. Well today I was fired from BlackBerry as part of their downsizing! I was barely there, just ten and a half months, but in my short time there I think it is safe to say I certainly made an impression - I think I even achieved the fastest internal Stackoverflow karma points rise ever, but don't quote me on that!Some of the highlights of my time there included single handedly porting clang/LLVM to QNX, something I only finished last Friday and it was wizard to watch LLVM being live JITed into ARM on device.
Tuesday 11th June 2013: 3.02pm. It's very rare I can show and tell anything from my work at BlackBerry, but I think this will be safe enough: this is the 29,554 functions of code which make up the rendering of an email by the BB10 Cascades Email Card with arrowed lines drawn between them showing which calls which, arranged using a repulsing gravity equation such that most interconnected items cluster while less connected items push apart.
Thursday 26th July 2012: 10.22am. New 65w laptop power brick arrived today - a Wei Xin Da Electronics device just £7 delivered to Ireland. I had been thinking it couldn't possibly be any good at that price, but given that the netbook is ancient and draws a max of 20w I figured it was worth the risk (one aims for less than 50% load with cheap PSUs). Anyway, it has about the right weight for its wattage and looks and feels of reasonable quality.
Thursday 12th July 2012: 1.38pm. So, yesterday +Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OTA update comes out for my +Galaxy Nexus so at about 11pm I go to apply it. An assert barfs that my build.prop has been changed, so I hand edit it to make it look like stock. It still barfs (it's not like build.prop having a single character out should fail an OTA update). I try manually downloading the update in case it got corrupted.
