*sigh* Burt is dead, because appearantly there is a better program called Gnumeric. Go figure. I don't what to do. After seeing what everyone has done, I don't want to clone another program. I guess I will have to break down and work on an existing one.

I am writing a program...

...I don't know what.

How about I make a programm called "iBill."

It does taxes in Linux...

Yeah, that will rock. I have been bashing my head into the terminal trying to find something to write.

UPDATE: 5:40 PM - ibill is a domain for e-taxes, so I will have to think of a cool name. Like GBill, or somthing...

Just wanted to update. I am designing programs for my dad, and he may get me into Boeing, if they don't sell the Wichita plant.

Oh well. *sigh*

PrBoom is going slow. I ordered a book on Cocoa programming, I hope to re-write the code using OS X's free XCode program. My webmonkey has the sites done for SF and they will be done in PHP I just need to set up a MySQL DB for the projects and for him. *sigh* so much to do.

Well, I am slowly learning more about how to code the PrBoom port to mac. I am using XTools now. I hope to buy a book soon, so if you want to donate a carbon and xtools programming book, I would greatly appriciate it, I will make sure 5 percent of your proceeds go to a cause of your choice.

HA! I got the docs writen for MacPrBoom. Just rough copies. Won't start any coding till after Christmas. But I think I will have some working stuff by January 1st, 2004. Patience fellow grasshoppers.

Well, I got the email from the project admins of PrBoom, that I can try for a port to MacOS Panther. More news soon.

Well, I am in the painstaking process of trying to port PrBooM to Panther. I am 65-77% sure I can come up with something that works by the beginning of January. I should learn SDL programming, but I don't think the authors are using that. Also, two key factors in development motivation are as follows:

  • How many people actually want to see a carbon port?


  • Is there a carbon port in existance?

    I will work on it as I get days off from work. I work 8 - 18 hours a week at work, and my job doesn't mind working on code outside of work, but they are soon going to pass a new rule and I may have to sign something, if worse comes to worse and you all want to see a carbon port, I can and will quit my job.


  • Not much to report. Playing some Unreal Tournamanet 2003 and learning to make a cool website. Right now my homepage is cool, but it is mediocre. I need something with bite.

    Well, some interesting news. Jabber Dot Org has been having difficulties, at least what I can see through Psi. Also, there is an effort starting, to port Debian to the PPC 64-bit G5s. *SWOON*
