Wow.. I hate working late, and last night was no exception.
I finally stumbled out of the office at 11:30 PM. I arrived
at 8:30 AM. Ugh. HOWEVER, I finally got my Matrox Corona
Frame Grabber card and my Matrox G200 AGP card to work in
Dual Monitor mode, AND I was able to capture live video
into my development environment. Wicked cool. I LOVE having
cool toys to play with :)
Before that stuff, I had a pretty mundane day. Finally
patched up the last of 3 customer databases I had to fix.
(Why do BLOB files have such a propensity for getting
currupted???) Worked some more on JabberIM. The client is
really starting to come together. I still need to tweak the
graphics I got from Tom @ Webb to deal with transparency
issues, but otherwise, the thing is Really starting
to look slick. AIM and MSN beware. I got a MUCH improved
message history working in Winjab, and it's ready to be
merged into the JabberIM codebase as well. I talked with
temas about other ideas for displaying message history, and
he had some good thoughts, but I need more time to
implement them yet. Maybe post 1.0 stuff.
I feel pretty good about both the JabberIM and WinJab
clients... they are both coming along nicely. The Flush meetings
on Friday went well, and we hashed out tons of remaining
issues. I'm still waiting for some JUD portions to get
coded out on the server side, and am eagerly awaiting the
file transfer (oob) stuff.
Today I'm hoping to plow through the rest of Andre's
comments about JabberIM and deal some more with my Frame
Grabber and CNC machine...maybe the phone will be
relatively silent and actually let me work today... I can
Last weekend was busy but fun. I had a Koinonia
team meeting on sunday where I'm playing my guitar for
a retreat on Mar 24-26. Afterwards I showed off WinJab to a
good friend and blew him away with ideas Jabber World
Domination Theory :) Finally cleaned the apartment on
Saturday afternoon, my bathroom and kitchen were beyond
disgusting, and actually got to the gym Sat nite to climb.
Full day. Sunday we had an amazing Footsteps Reunion after
church (30+ kids showed up) and had a good meeting
