I have a job now...Yeah, going to work like *every* the morning and stuff. Oh well.
I decided that I ought to clean up some of my GNOME 2.0 stuff this weekend, so I did. Hopefully I will be able to find more time in the comming weeks to throw the rest of the finishing touches on the PanelMenu and GnomeFileSelector projects so that they don't suck horribly. Anyway, the PanelMenu handles VFS based directory monitoring pretty well now, the Browse button in one of the dialogs actually hooks to something, and the Preferences item is displayed before Actions. Mostly a lot of cosmetic changes, but I'm pretty happy with where the applet is at right now.
Back to work tommorrow. I'm a Java developer now, working on Database/XML interfacing into some statistical Design of Experiments software...It's a pretty good job, I actually get paid and stuff.

Woohoo! First Glimmer release in awhile came just a few minutes ago...I have been hacking on it a bit this weekend, and decided that it was a good idea to release my changes. Most of the work went into revamping the find/replace routines a bit to allow for multiple file searches. A lot of people have asked for that since the beginning, so I decided that it was about time to bust it out. I also change the icon and title images to a gun metal blue type color instead of the orange...didn't like the old gradient much personally.

In honor of the new release, I also uploaded the new webpage design that I did over the Christmas vacation whilst I was home and bored out of my mind. Anyway, thats all for today thinks me.

Damn, its been ages since I took the time to cruise over here to advogato and bust out something on my activity log...then again, I haven't been doing a ton of hacking lately either...the hazards of women interfearing with the important stuff. Anyway, yesterday I got pissed off at all of the shitty playlist editors, so now I am writing my own...hopefully I can get some credit for this shit from one of my teachers so I can justify spending a couple weeks hacking on it.

Not much in the way of news on Glimmer lately...I hacked a new feature last week, but it was pretty minor...just a little column delete action that was looking to be useful at the time.

That's all for now, but I promise that I will be better about updating this now.

Today was more productive than many days in the past 2 weeks. I've been doing a lot of work on my family's Airstream motorhome, and have been neglecting LATTE quite a bit...
Anyway, I was reading my mail this morning and got the 7th request for a way to set the highlighting style explicitly (menu style), so I decided it was high time to do it. And so it is that the editor known as LATTE now has the final feature that has been requested by a *sane* user. I'm thinking that 1.0 is going to be coming out sometime next week.

Back from vacation (2 weeks in the middle of nowhere) and hacking on CodeCommander again. Things went well today...I went through all of the dialogs and window-widgets and fixed the button sizes and added default buttons and such. I also added the standard GNOME pixmaps to many of the dialogs. All in all, not a bad first day back IMHO.
On vacation I started working on a new framework for what I hope will eventually be the ultimate GNOME IDE...currently I'm just calling it GNOME Commander, and it's something like a way of embedding lots of different IDE related components in a single GUI via Bonobo, and a new flexible container widget similar in apperance to what is used in VC++ and Borland (all the nice dragable windows and such)
