Today was my last at Trolltech. Some of you already knew that, the others are likely getting mouth to mouth reciprocation right now while a heavy set man is charging defibrillator paddles next to them (breath, breath!). Technically Qt is years ahead of all of its competition and with Trolltech’s amazing engineering team it will […]

I was on vacations last week but I’m being all jealous of my luggage. It got a free trip around the world. During my last 8 flights my luggage has been lost 5 times. Is that a record? Confetti anyone? It’s a celebration. If you’re going to meet me during any of the upcoming conferences […]

There are days when I do something quite interesting and in my mind I can almost see myself on a stage in tight, tight spandex pants, long hair, perm, cowboy boots yelling angrily “are you ready to roock?!”. People cheering, babies laughing, women throwing their bra’s on the stage. It’s poetic. Then I remember that […]

Before boarding a flight I’m eagerly awaiting the security presentation that is about to ensue. I figure that these people spent their valuable time learning how to point to the ground, back, forward and to the side and someone needs to appreciate that effort. During my last flight I even went ahead and tried to […]

Like many other geeky people I’ve spent the last week in Scotland. The insane abundance of overgrown egos caused wrinkles at the very fabric of weather conditions in Glasgow and it rained the whole week. It happened to be my second birthday in a row that I’ve spent on a KDE hackfest. If things continue […]

I’m trying to get my presentations for Saturday’s Akademy conference ready, which is going really well. Let me rephrase – it’s not going well, but I tremendously enjoy pressure and cookies. The latter having, unfortunately nothing to do with any of this blog. I’ll be talking about graphics and linguistics and want to show some […]

“The life of man is divided between waking, dreaming and dreamless sleep.” or so it’s written in “The Upanishads”… I wouldn’t know because the cartoon version still hasn’t been released and I refuse to spend even a second of my life pumping a stream of information into my brain that hasn’t been properly sprinkled with […]

Today’s blog might sound a little muffled, that’s because it’s coming straight from the heart. Which is in direct opposition to all of the “What’s Open Source community missing” blogs/articles, which are coming straight from a vastly less prominent body part. To not dwell to much on human anatomy, I’m going to move on to […]

One of the perks of being a software engineer is that during the day you get to use such phrases as “oh, what the hell”, “that’s pure crack” and a large number of “expletive-deleted” without it seeming weird in any way. I can only feel sorry for doctors who rarely get the opportunity to scream […]

Mesa and LLVM

I’ve been toying for a while with the idea of rewriting programmable pipeline in Mesa. The most obvious reason is the fact that fragment shaders are absolutely crucial when it comes to modern graphics. We use them extensively in Qt and I’m using it all over the place in my special effects library. As those […]
