airport: Surprisingly minimal security at the gate. Still, it’s better than what existed before. I’m a still little miffed though, as zana and I were told on the phone to be at the gate three hours prior to departure. It took 10 minutes to get everything set. Zana has an hour more to wait than […]

Movie (Elizabeth): Very cool movie. Very very good movie. Sir Francis Walsingham was very cool. Or maybe it’s just Geoffrey Rush. Hacking: Nautilus is so cool. Dinner: We went to an Indian restaurant for dinner. They were playing a version of the theme song from “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” on the Sitar, […]

Blizzard: Came to visit for a week. It was fun to have him around. The dog especially enjoyed his company. After he left, I spent the afternoon and evening cleaning up. I even ironed a bunch of shirts. Music: I broke down and bought a Moby album yesterday. Hacking: I’ve been working on Nautilus the […]

hacking: Man, it’s been a while since I’ve entered any diaries. I’m tired. I just got AisleRiot2 to draw the old freecell style cards. There’s a screenshot of a random game written in Scheme using the new engine at http://jrb.webwynk.net/files/Screenshot-Test_scm.png I took it with the very nifty screenshooter. GNOME is sooo cool nowadays…

hacking (GtkTreeView): Started adding keybinding support. I should have done this a long time ago — it was a lot easier then I thought. wireless: Got 2 cards and a base station. Now I can use my laptop wireless from anywhere in the house. It’s very cool… federico: Congratulations, dude. I hope you guys are […]

lunch: Memorial day today. Christian came over and we barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs. Additionally, we made a mediocre green salad, and a very nice pasta salad (Shells with seedless summer tomatoes and pesto.) We asked him to bring the beverages, and he responded by bringing a whole lot of beer, some nice pink lemonade, […]

doggy: Stinks. Managed to get into something outside recently. I’ve shampooed him four times too… sports: Watched the Lakers destroy the Spurs with Zana tonight. It was pretty fun. I thought Tim Duncan was cooler then that, though… hacking: Wrote a small screenshooter for GNOME inspired by Havoc’s post. I found what I think is […]

hacking (AisleRiot2): Got cards drawing again — this time they’re scaled. Also started porting the drawing engine from AR1 over until I can get real SVG images. hacking (GtkTreeView): I added the amazing focusing but non-activateable buttons today. These are buttons that you can click on to give focus (necessary for reordering columns). However you […]

hacking: wrote a highlighting mode for gtk-demo last night. I have a sinking feeling that it’s the most productive thing I did all week. All the tree bugs I fixed were fairly small ones that no one will ever really see, unless they do things in their program in a backwards order. guppi and gnumeric: […]

movie: Fairwell My Concubine. A very good movie. Made me really greatful again I didn’t grow up in China during the cultural revolution. What a horrible, horrible thing that was. After the movie, I decided to go ahead and buy a book on Cantonese grammar so I can (try to) learn a little Cantonese with […]
