Welcome

I'm David Llewellyn-Jones and this is my homepage. I'm a software engineer at Jolla, who's also interested in programming, security, privacy and graphics. I occasionally crave adventure and a good thunderstorm. You might be interested in my software, my research or my random musings.

Want to know more about me? Here's a personality sketch written by a psychologist when I was in school.

“David is of high intelligence, although lacking in true creativity. He has a need for order and clarity, and for neat and tidy systems in which every detail finds its appropriate place. His writing is rather dull and mechanical, occasionally enlivened by somewhat corny puns and by flashes of imagination of the sci-fi type. He has a strong drive for competence. He seems to have little feel and little sympathy for other people and does not enjoy interacting with others. Self-centered, he nonetheless has a deep moral sense.”

Wow. Harsh. But disturbingly accurate.

13 Oct 2019 : Waste and recycling data #
Another week, another round of rubbish weighed. I'm pleased it went down a bit this week from 2.5kg to 1.8kg total, mostly due to a big reduction in compostables being thrown away this week. Weighing my rubbish has highlighted how much of it comes from junk mail, so yesterday I added a note to my door that reads "Ei mainoksia kiitos" ("No ads please"). Let's see if that reduces my paper waste in future.

I've weighted my waste and the new numbers have been added to my waste tracking page. This week compost and card are up, while glass is down. My average is still around the 2.5kg level.

I've decided to start collecting data on how much waste I produce each week. Might help me reduce it over time. Check out my new waste info page for the full details.
 
15 Sep 2019 : Sailfish app updates - Scintillon and GetiPlay #
Not just one but two new versions of my Sailfish apps are now available for download. GetiPlay has been updated to version 0.9 and now uses the latest ffmpeg and AtomicParsley utilities under the hood, which will hopefully lead to better audio and video rendering. There's also now an i486 version available for the first time. Scintillon has also seen an update to version 0.3. This latest version has Italian translations provided by the brilliant Francesco Vaccaro of Jolla-IT fame. Thanks Francesco!

Long overdue, I've now updated the About page to include my current role at Jolla and to box off my role at Cambridge Authentication.
