  • code:

    I fixed a lot of things in my code for the kbatmon system tray. I hope to do some more cleanup so that it is organized as:

    • A generic class that creates a kde system tray icon.
    • The battery monitor will be derived from that class and contain info specific to the battery monitor....

    Then I hope to write a few more programs that utilize the generic class... Just simple ones that do things like check mail or whatever. The only other one I can think of that I want is an icon that shows signal strength for my wireless connection, and if you click it, you can connect to another wireless network (and get ips, etc)...

    The other main reason I want to do this is to write a tutorial/howto on writing system trays... It took me many hours for something that should be simple.

  • life: More mpi coding to do. For my languages class I need to rewrite a lisp interpretter to allow deep binding. Midterm Tuesday in Parallel computing. So this weekend will be study non-stop.
