4 Mar 2001 nullity   » (Master)

grrrrr. Netscape borked today for no apparent reason and forgot all its settings. So I lost my mail filters. I think I'll go back to Gnus at this point, if I can get it working with Eazel's CertificateAuthenticatedIMAP (TM) servers, or maybe Evolution. I have been keeping NS4.75 around exclusively for mail, so I'll see this as an opportunity rather than a curse, neh?
Looks like Nautilus 1.0 freeze is really happening this time. Even though I wanted to get all my bugs fixed, the obligation of Nautilus hell had become opressive. Nautilus has had 600% more of my time than I could afford to spend on it this week, so code freeze means final relief w/o guilt. Hey, its not my fault I had to stop working, the bastards just wouldn't let me commit anymore ;-) I am happy though because we will be shipping a Nautilus that performs, if not perfectly, admirably, on Solaris. Actually some of the Solaris code (notably MP3 playing) is better than the Linux equivalents right now, though sadly not of my doing.
Work on Tadpole may resume again now that Nautilus recedes in urgency... I need to dig more into the core code and wrap my head around it before I can really be productive. Its just not at the point where I could (even if I wanted to) devote myself soley to, say, writing CODECs. My threadfu has grown weak as of late owing to a year of crappy "We hate threads, we hate C++" GNOME programming....
