So a lot has happened. Had a part on March 31 for mtgordon's birthday.

Then I left for Linux Expo in Madrid, the talk is online here. Hopefully it translated ok from spanish to english. Excellent group of free software people in spain - i think i barely had a meal under 2 hours the whole time.

From there to Copenhagen for GUADEC. Where I gave another talk with campd. Excellent get together. Went to Christiana free town, a strange hippy enclave in Copenhagen that is fairly autonomous.

Back to the grind.

Ok, so today was the big day at the New England Poker Classic. 493 entries, about twice as many as I thought there would be. Played tough but missed some cards and got stuck badly in a hand with KQs which basically ended my day in between 200th and 220th. So-so at best.

Working on the purify box this week at work so we can pound away at evo. Chasing some pilot syncing bugs.

Leaving for madrid on monday. Then onward to the great guadec.

Gotta figure what to do for Easter.

Started trying to get ready for my talks at guadec and linux expo madrid.

Watched two movies sitting on the couch today, American History X and Silence of the Lambs. Went to a nice party with rachel and campd.

More gIDE related hacking - trying to get project modification working. Hacking away on evo as usual.

Busy ten days.

Girlfriend Tara and sister Tina came visiting last week as did my friend Mel. Went to a Bruins game Thursday. Aqarium and a lot of walking on Friday. Saturday was St. Patrick's Day and shockingly I went out drinking.

Poker last night, made a decent profit. Only a week to the New England Poker Classic.

More evolution hacking. Little bits on gIDE. Must put together presentations for Linux Expo Madrid (Evolution) and GUADEC (gIDE) very soon. Don't want to look like an idiot.

Took Friday off because my brother came to town on Wednesday afternoon. Went to Drinking Culture on Wednesday. Small but enthusiastic turnout this week. Watched some movies on Thursday. Friday wandered around town and picked up some CD's. A little Thoroughgood, a little Rob Zombie and some Coltrane which my brother deemed a "seminal jazz album". If you can't believe a jazz music major who can you believe?

Brother took off on Saturday and I hit the Foxwood's Poker Tournament. Finished 6th out of 112 and made some money. Big tourney in two weeks.

Lots of random evolution hacking this week. A little gnome-build hacking. Trying to do some current target stuff for hooking up gnome-debug.

Great weekend of gIDE/gnome-build/gnome-debug/gdl hacking. We have a control that provides a build info control and you can click on errors and such to jump to files and line numbers. Got syntax hilighting going for a few more mime types and campd is tidying up some debug issues. Mark Benvenuto has started sending us patches, hooray!

Not a lot else happened. A lot more people left, ettore, notzed and federico freed up our couch.

Watched a bunch of movies this weekend, The Prophecy, Southpark, Lethal Weapon, Conspiracy Theory - couch hacking is a good thing.

There was a distinct lack of beer this weekend, but excellent Japanese food. Turns out I might like sushi after all.

My brother will probably swing by for a few days this week. More visitors next week.

The end of recent gnome-pilot hacking is near. A couple little bits of tidying and then back to evolution.

Jimmac made some nice gIDE icons.

Drinking culture was ok, but lots of fun people are now gone. Sigh.

Woohoo, got to start planning my attack on the New England Poker Classic. Going to try and play in one limit and one no limit event. Mmmm. No Limit. See Rounders.

The gnome-pilot hacking continues. Egads this is taking a while. An open office tshirt arrived in the mail today from a kind lwe soul. Can't let jody see that!

Had a great gIDE "summit" with campd today. Bugzilla'ed a bunch of stuff, made time estimates and defined a feature set for the guadec-2001 milestone. The pressure is on now the meeks even referred to it in his diary!

So it turns out that Saturday's party goal was to get rid of 15 extraneous bottles of beer. There are now 37 at the house. If this is what happens, I should host parties often.

Saw a lot of people off at the Boston Beerworks on Friday now that the evolution summit is over. Afterwards me, sean, notzed and rachel hit the Burren. Never seen it so crowded - the bloody Guiness Toast thing.

Arrived at the casino 10 minutes too late for the poker tournament. Taylor and I played 5-10 Hold'em and took home about $140 each after 4 hours of play.

Hit rachel's party on Saturday night. Much drinking by all. notzed brought wine and zambucca. federico took care of the white russian making. I just brought beer.

The evolution summit proceeds. Man are there a lot of bloody meetings.

Everyone has moved to the new office. It pretty much rules. I have a big desk and a file cabinet and drawers. Lots of space. And more than one meeting room. VC funding is ok by me. The commute sucks though.

Good italian food in the North End on Tuesday. Jillian's for a company thing last night.

Discovered damon plays chess. Excellent.

Saw Brother Where Art Thou tonight. Mediocre.

Poker tournament on Saturday.
