Shane O'Sullivan's technical blog… really ties the room together

About

I am a software engineer working with the Client UI team at Facebook in Palo Alto, California.

Prior to my current job, I worked for for four years as a senior software developer with the Client Development Environment team in Cúram Software, based in Dublin, focusing on Ajax technologies, Java and Flex. Before that, I worked for three years at IBM Ireland as a researcher of Open Source technologies, and I also have experience in all things Java, from J2EE to Eclipse/Rich Client Platform development.

In my spare time I work on the Dojo Ajax Toolkit and a number of other projects, including the next generation search portal Chofter.com and mobile applications for Palms webOS phones.

This blog contains my various musings on all things technical/interesting on the interweb and beyond.

  1. Ant is a fabulous piece of software, though it may not be obvious at first. It’s well worth investigating, and eventually the penny will drop.

    See for example, http://daveshields.wordpress.com/2006/12/25/sixth-sakai-conference-trip-report/ in a brief comment about 2/3 of the way through the piece.

  2. I’m not sure why this comment appears on the “About” posting, perhaps you meant to put it on the posting here – http://shaneosullivan.wordpress.com/2007/01/03/setting-the-working-directory-for-an-ant-java-task ?

  3. mea culpa – right you are.

    Hi,

    I’m a linux newbie, but I was able to follow your excellent guide on setting up edgy on the X41 Tablet PC. I was wondering if you have upgraded to fiesty, and if so, what your experience was. I”m thinking about doing a clean install, but would really like some confirmation that it doesn’t break everything.

    Thanks so much for your help!

  5. Hi, glad you found the posts useful.

    It looks like you left the comment in the wrong blog posting. It should probably be at http://shaneosullivan.wordpress.com/2007/02/16/installing-ubuntu-edgy-on-a-thinkpad-x41-tablet

    Anyway, as yet I haven’t upgraded to Feisty, though I probably will soon through Ubuntu’s upgrade mechanism. When I do, I’ll report any issues I had, and solutions I found.

  8. Joseph, congrats on holding out for so long! Unfortunately I have no plans to port Flickr Mundo to another platform, it would be months of work, for which I don’t have the time. It makes me sad to be honest, after all the work I put into it, but it was great while it lasted.
