Well, it seems only robocoder caught on to the joke in my diary entry last Thursday. Thanks, robo, for the comment. It was meant to be funny.
It goes like this: I was talking to someone on #kernelnewbies. The poor guy was suffering from analysis paralysis, what with so many guides and how-tos out there. And he was taking a survey to determine which guide was most recommended so he could read that one (which I think is such a waste of time; just pick one and read it, and if it doesn't help, pick out another one). He asked me which kernel guide I recommended reading just for starters. I mentioned Val's "LinuxChix Kernel Hacking Lessons".
He answered with "but that's for girls!" I thought his response was very funny, so I wrote a parody of it for my diary.
I've started writing a chapter on System.Windows.Forms for the Mono documentation project. With the upcoming holiday and things going so slow at work for the next two weeks, I should be able to post it for review by next Friday, if not sooner.
More GTK+ and GNOME hacking
I am also writing lots of little GTK+, GTKMM, and GTK# test programs, to continue my learning. And I've made progress unraveling GNOME calculator. I'm thinking of revamping the GUI, for my own enlightenment at least. I just think it looks so bland compared to all the newer GNOME software out there. It clearly hasn't been touched since GNOME 1.0.
