Been doing lots of little non-linux/non-gnome related stuff the last few days. Discovered that I have a scheduled talk with my boss in a month where we are to discuss my progress the last year. So I am now started reading up to at least get one or two Oracle RDBMS certifications exams before the talk since that was what we put on my schedule for this last year which was my personal responsibilty to do. Urk, that stuff is boring.

My sailboat is still not close to getting on the water and it seems it will be a couple of more weeks before it is. The guy who is supposed to install the engine is having some trouble finding someone to get us the correct coneing of the propel shaft. Argh, now half the summer is already gone. Bet it will start raining the last half. God how I curse that day I bought that boat.

Bought myself Never Winter Nights the other day, first game I bought in a year at least. Nice enough, but I am waiting for the the Linux binaries before really starting to play and even then I guess it will not be long before I decide to let it rest as I am not really into playing games anymore.

Seems many of the small anoyances of GNOME2 is being sorted out now for 2.0.1; menu editing and window manager chooser capplet for instance.

Many little fixes going into the GStreamer tree the last few days as we prepare for 0.4.0. Can’t help but feeling a little anoyed about the known scheduler bugs we will be shipping with. Stupidest thing is that I have really no reason to be annoyed, bugs that I have not even managed to trigger myself is not really something I should let bother me, still the knowledge that they are there gnaws on my soul. Guess part of my irritation is that I feel the hard work thomasvs and wingo have put into the two schedulers over the last 2-3 weeks, not to mention the work wingo spent on writing the new scheduler, should be rewarded higher by the powers that be.

Well hopefully we will be able to nail the bugs sometime after the 0.4.0 release so that we can concentrate on more polish level fixes in prepartion for GStreamer 0.5.0 and its inclusion in GNOME 2.2
