Just another undergrad with a serious hangover of teenageness. I am one of the many Debianers here, and I joined Red Bean through craigbro. Yes, Craig, when I get some time I will learn Lisp. ;-) I am of the "less is more" school of thought when it comes to software, but I still think Perl is pretty cool. I find flame wars interminably boring.

I run free software because I think I have an ethical imperative to do so, not because I think it's technically better.

Rostler's Rules:

  1. Funny is better than serious.
  2. Short is better than long.
  3. Short and funny is best.

jschauma: No, that one has two 'e's (well, three of them, actually). [Insert random bitterness at people in my life who smoke pot and intentionally fuck up their health in other various ways and who are sucking away time I could have used doing some worthwhile hacking here.]

Wow, two weeks of this term have gone by and I haven't written a thing. I've been really quite busy outside of class and I've had more to write in my "personal" diary than here. This is not, however, a bad thing, because I have a girlfriend now ;-)

Currently I am sifting through the autobook in order to fix more broken Gaim makefiles. Yeargh. Hairiness.

qiv 1.6 got released; please bang on it and yell at me if I've broken anything.

I think I can finish extending the parser for the aewm goodies in a relatively sane way; now I just need to find some time to implement it.

I really should stop using -pre kernels. (Hi to everyone who knows what I'm talking about...)

goingware: repeat after me three times:

The X Window System
The X Window System
The X Window System

There is no such thing as "XWindows". Thank you. ;-)

joey: I Am Dumb(TM). Thank you. :-)

Well, this is weird. There are two problems in qiv that I still can't track down:

  • the jump command (j[f,b,t][number]) doesn't work.
  • adjusting brightness/contrast/gamma back to zero doesn't update the image properly.

The funny thing is, Adam sees the first one and I don't, whereas I see the second one and Adam doesn't. So if someone would be so kind as to download pre4 and try to figure out which one of us is on crack, it'd be very helpful.

To be honest, the code responsible for both things is a mess, but I'm working on making it nicer.


Life? What life? I don't remember having a life.
