File Selector: I volunteered to help Federico clean up the file selector for the 2.4 release. It’s been really nice to work on GTK+ again. I hadn’t done much in the way of widget work in the last couple months, and it felt good to write a size_allocate function. Sysadmin: Spent large parts of last […]

GConfPropertyEditor: I was unable to sleep last night, and ended up staying up until 4:30 in the morning watching reruns of “Who’s Line is it Anyway” and working on my rewrite of the GConfPropertyEditors. Now that James Henstridge has done work on bug #69639 I have a lot more interest in getting this into the […]

work: I’ve been wrestling with rhgb for the last week or so. I’m still not really satisfied that we’ve gotten all of the kinks out of it, but it’s much better than it was last week. We’ve gotten it to the point that it doesn’t slow down the boot much more than it booting without […]

health: Been too long since I’ve written. My health problems have largely settled down to an annoyance rather than a distraction. I fear this may be temporary, though… mail: I have too much mail. books: I haven’t been reading enough lately. I need to fix this.

kite: I got to fly my kite!!!! It wasn’t very windy, so I got to practice low speed flying. It was very tough to keep in the air, as it continually stalled and fluttered down. I managed to get Edward to fly it for a while, too. He thought it was pretty cool. Tomorrow we’re […]

pet peeve: There’s a commercial on TV advertising a CD-ROM that can “help you learn the computer!” It has a pretty vacuous blonde stating that “she has now learned the computer, thanks to [the product].” Try learning english first… hacking: Spent half the week building GNOME 1.4 packages for RH. This took a long time. […]

hacking (GTK+-HEAD): Not a lot of work done today. Still, wrote a simple little test program to see if speed is a problem. I’m not sure yet. movie (Being John Malkovich): Watched with Zana tonight while I did laundry. books: Went used book shopping with Zana. We got $65 worth, which stretched pretty far. I […]

Hacking (GTK+-HEAD): Massive amounts of GtkListStore hacking today. I felt like I’d been extremely productive at the end of the day, despite the fact I didn’t get to work until mid afternoon. I put up a cool (animated) screenshot on the labs website. I also learned how to change the timeout of a single frame […]
