Coding

Once again with the lack of entries.. Ah well. I've been working on a few things lately. First, GNUpdate has been getting a rewrite. libcomprex's design was flawed, and is getting a new design, and a glib backend. This will prompt redesigns of the rest of the libraries, after libcomprex is done. I can finally get this project back on track.

I've been working on the GNOME bounty that syncs Evolution with Gaim's buddy list. It's rather cool, and works well. I finished it a few days ago, and am just waiting to hear back from The Powers That Be on the two projects.

I'm contemplating doing more work with GNOME code, and maybe contributing to a couple projects. I like the idea of integrating everything, and will probably work toward that.

Birthday

Wednesday the 10th will be my 20th birthday. However, this weekend was my celebration of that. Saturday, I had a party with some of my friends. We went bowling, had some Mongolian BBQ, cake, and played games over here. It was a lot of fun. I wish it could have lasted longer, but then, all good things must come to an end :P

My girlfriend drew a picture of me, which I love. Her sisters also drew me some cool pics. I wish I could draw as well as them. Megan gave me an evil Pikachu money bank. It confused my sister a bit, but I thought it was funny.

Today, I had a family birthday. My girlfriend, unfortunately, wasn't able to come. We went to an Asian restaurant, and I got a replacement electric blanket (my sister somehow broke the old one), and an HP PSC 1210 scanner/copier/printer. No USB cable, though, so I'll have to pick one up.

I was supposed to see my dad tomorrow and have a birthday lunch and stuff. Howver, he just called a few minutes ago and told me he won't be able to make it this week.. Sucks.

I'm actively trying to find a way to make my actual birthday eventful in some way, since everything happened this weekend, but I'm currently not coming up with anything. Oh well..

Back to more code, I guess.
