  • evince: GNOME-2.12 went out the door today with the new evince release. Version 0.4.0 is the culmination of a lot of hard work by the entire evince team. By blending a mixture of features and simplicity, we have reached a state of genuine usefulness. We are still very ambitious; there are a lot of awesome features currently on the drawing board.

    Of all the features in evince, the one that I’m most proud of is that we don’t have a preference dialog. It’s taken a lot of discipline and creativity along the way, but we managed.

  • zana: My wife rocks.

  • bites: I got a nibble from someone who was interested in working on gnome-vfs. Hopefully it will work out well, but time will tell (as always).

  • Anders (the mime): Working with mime-types is sort of demoralizing. It’s not as hard as the documentation project, but can still be tricky.

  • UI-Freeze: We aren’t frozen in the control center yet. We are so tantalizingly close, though.

  • Zana: She totally rocks my world. That’s why I married her.

  • Weiqi (chic): I haven’t played Christian in a while. Maybe we’ll start playing again, it’s what all the cool kids are doing.

  • Gin (drink): I made Zana a nice mixed drink for dinner tonight with some left over Chambord, and some Gin. She was somewhat tipsy as a result.

  • Gin (cards): After dinner, we determined that the drink aforementioned made Zana extraordinarily good at cards. She proceeded to kick my butt in Gin Rummy 287 – 0.

  • Zana: We’ve been married just over two years now. It’s been a wonderful 731 days.

  • gnome-vfs: Spent today playing with gnome-vfs. This could be such a cool library if we had someone to hack on it beyond just the maintenance that it gets. We need a cool daemon for a number of reasons. Any volunteers out there?

  • apps: Wrote the worlds ugliest app for Garrett today. He needed something to test themes with, so I through as many widgets as possible together.

  • zana: Knitting like mad on my sweater. It looks cool…

  • work: Unproductive day. Helped Crutcher track down a memory-corruption bug. Did some glade-work. Then tried to do some more work on GtkTreeModelSort to ease my conscience.

  • dog: Jester caught an opossum earlier tonight. He seemed rather proud of himself, but got a shower for his troubles. The opossum appeared to be quite dead, but ran off a few minutes later. I guess they do that.

  • xmas: Opened presents from my uncle and aunt, rather then drag them all the way to LA for Christmas. Zana got a book of Welsh poems. I need to learn Welsh — it’s such a cool looking language. I need to learn Cantonese first, though…
