Helped Chutt track down the CD audio bug in FreeAmp the other day. He still hasn't committed it to the CVS tree because his local tree is b0rked, but it at least works on my machine...
Moved over to using enlightenment V0.17 full time at home yesterday. It doesn't have enough features yet for me to use it at work, but for home use it does fine. I'm using gnome panel, since there aren't any root menus yet--it appears that the gnome menu in panel has become full of evil suck. At least in the .deb, there are a bunch of stupid application catagories that you can't edit from the menu editor, the only thing you can change is stuff under your "Favorites" menu. And why does each sub menu have a heading that gives you the name of the menu again in what looks like another menu item that isn't selectable? Since I just selected the Favorites selection on my menu, don't I probably *KNOW* what that menu is? Also, I found it annoying that if I had a 'sliding' panel and used the little arrow buttons to move it to the far right of the screen and then dragged it somewhere else, it would jump back to the right hand side whenever I added anything to it. After spending years defending gnome in #e, I find that I can't really stand using it anymore. Oh well...

My favorite place to eat in Georgetown, Burrito Brothers, is closing tomorrow. sigh

it seems that after quite awhile of stability, mozilla has had some problems over the last several weeks. I've had it crash more over the last couple of weeks then in the 2 months previous, I think. There have also been weird problems with dialogs, and it seems to have eaten this diary entry, twice. Ah well, hopefully they are doing cool stuff and that's what's breaking...
