See You When You’re Fourty

Well, it seems I’m not a 0xteenager anymore.

For the hexadecimal-impaired, today I’m 26 years old. Four more years to go before submitting an entry to the GNOME Ol’ Farts Club.

July, July

veronica mars: I’ve watched the season finale last week and it was awesome; the entire second season was awesome, but last episode was a blast. I’ll avoid any spoiler here, but really you should watch the show if you aren’t – with its gritty and cynical view of the world, with good acting and great storylines; I’m really happy CW confirmed it for another season.

foundation: my application for the GNOME foundation membership has been finally approved; I’ve asked for the ‘cool email alias’ and behdad was really kind enough to set it up, so kudos goes to him as well as the Foundation membership committee.

gnome-utils: work and real life took precedence in the last weeks; so I didn’t release gnome-utils in time for GNOME 2.15.2. Development didn’t stop, though, and you can count on a release in time for 2.15.3. Especially the Dictionary users should track the next unstable release, as it will feature the Infamous Missing Speller Widget, plus a bunch of fixes and other features. I’ll make a blog with screenshots about it soon. By the way, check out gnome-utils roadmap on the wiki and see if there are tasks you’d like to mention, or take up.

GUADEC: My proposal for a tutorial about the recent files and bookmarks architecture has been left out of the core days, and moved to the warm up weekend like the other tutorials; so, if the provisional schedule holds, I’ll give my tutorial at 18:00 on Sunday, right before the GNU/FIFA soccer game – I’ll try to keep the tutorial short. :-)

Now listening: The Decemberists, Castaways and cutouts


I’ve just upgraded my italian blog to WordPress 2.0, so I decided to upgrade context switch too.

the upgrade procedure inside WP2.0 is serverly broken – or so, it seems on my web hosting, resulting in a lot of permission errors; at the end of the day, I had to simply reinstall everything from scratch (except for the database).

anyway, the new WP release is nice, full of neat stuff; guess we couldn’t avoid all that AJAX hell (I gave a look at the sources), especially now that it’s so hyped that everyone and his sister’s uses it.

I’m going to rewrite my theme, so I’ve switched back to plain kubrick.
