  • Weekend: Our library (http://www.gpl.org) has museum pass program. Rosanna and I spent a lovely day at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. I enjoyed the maritime exhibits. They also had a pretty impressive collection of export art. We then went to Gloucester for dinner.

  • GTK+: It’s coming up to branch time. I’m looking forward to putting typeahead into GtkTreeView I did some prep for this on Sunday, and should be in good shape to do it next week. I think it’ll really work well.

  • bugzilla: Spent much of the week going through both GNOME and Red Hat bugzilla, trying to get my bugs under control. Had pretty good luck with my GTK+ bugs, less luck with the other ones.

  • sports streaks: 63 saves and 15 wins. Both are worth watching.

  • weekend: Great weekend! My brother came to Boston to look at schools, and we took a day off to go do touristy things with him. We went to Salem and looked at the old town there. It was a little chilly, but otherwise a gorgeous spring day. After looking at houses and boats, we went back to Groton and had a nice dinner.

    The next day, Zana and I dropped off my brother to go to an interview and went down the the esplenade for a walk. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and felt like the first real spring day that we’ve had. We then went to Bartley’s in Harvard Square and went book shopping.

  • meta: Federico pointed out that I have been forgetting to update this, so I will start doing so again.

  • camera: Southern California was fun. Zana and I got a digital camera for christmas — a Olympus D-490Z. After spending a long and frustrating time trying to get it to work with GPhoto, I finally RTFM. The stupid thing doesn’t communicate unless the front cover is open. So I took some pictures of my doggy: http://webwynk.net/~jrb/jester1.jpg http://webwynk.net/~jrb/jester2.jpg http://webwynk.net/~jrb/jester3.jpg

  • weekend (tv): XFL is on. It’s going to suck. I’m going to watch it anyway. Blargh.
