movie (Alphaville): Watching alphaville. Odd, odd movie. A French version of 1984. Very odd. I need an Alpha 60 here. It would be fun to play go against it. movie (Chinese Ghost Story I): Last night, we watched this. It felt like a cross between Princess Bride and Evil Dead 2 (in Chinese). It was […]

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 […]

movie: Saw “An Ideal Husband” with Alex and Zana. It was pretty good, though I felt like I’d seen it before. I felt really stupid at the end when I realized it was an Oscar Wilde play. I even think I’ve read it before. hacking (Zope): Owen and I learned more about Zope then we […]

hacking (music): Spent a few minutes cleaning up Mr. Rupert’s Ripping and Encoding tools so they do a better job of encoding data into the ogg’s created. I am considering adding FreeDB support to the encoding tool so I can get the DATE field added. hacking (Nautilus): Spent the night trying to modify the music […]

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 […]

paintball: Paintball this morning with the Red Hat Dev team. It was somewhat frustrating — my gun kept jamming and my goggles kept fogging up. Left a little early with Zana. shopping: After paintball, we went to Walmart and Barnes and Noble. Walmart is still one of my least favorite shops of all time, but […]

DSL: Connection was down for most of the weekend. Suck. Oscars: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Wires didn’t win Best Picture. Further Proof that none of the voters actually watch the movies. Hacking: Despite the fact we’ve reached crunch time, I was unable to do any serious GTK+ hacking from home due to above mentioned network outage. […]

Hacking (AisleRiot2): I probably should clarify what I got working last night. I got the library back to where it was before I tore it apart last week, though moving/revealed cards are now shaped. I also made it autoconf based (instead of my ugly hack of a makefile) and checked it into CVS this evening […]
