Spent some of the day trying to write a Python script which would search through my logs and ignore stuff which I'd put in a separate file of ignores. For some reason this was particularly hard, probably because of the reverse logic. TIS toolkit has a similair script which is kinda cool as it lets you see the 'unusual' stuff. Think I cracked the search logic but it uses flags to work out if it's matched any of the lines in the ignore.file which is irritating me: one of those cases where you know there's a better way but can't figure it out.
Pretty slow day otherwise, quite warm here which always gets me badly - course this being the UK most people would find my concept of warm really strange!
Thing that made me chuckle today was this from some bloke called joss on slashdot:
"gtk is the obvious choice for anyone coming from a motif background. Nothing else is sufficiently awkward to program with - it just wouldn't feel natural. "
can you imagine the design meeting, 'OK guys we gotta make these widgets so nasty that it physically hurts to think about them' heh heh.
