What's the problem with witchburning censorship anyway? I don't see why anyone should expect to be allowed to broadcast their witchburning exploits.

Spent much time last night trying to figure out why the persion translation for gtk2 wasn't working on Red Hat 7.0, and ended up discovering that this was due to UTF-8 being in lowercase instead of uppercase. This was then causing glibc2.2 to try and convert it from latin1 to UTF-8, when it was already in UTF-8. Madness ensued.


Bidi xterm hacking going well, should be feature-complete by the end of the month.

Er, that's about it really.


Starting to add support to Xterm for bidi. This is making my head hurt. (well, metaphorically)


Made a nifty little panel applet that uses xkb to figure out an appropriate flag for the current keygroup, with no configuration required at all. Ported my Hindi/Bengali keymaps to Xkb format. Now pondering how to get Xkb to combine arbritrary combinations (e.g. say I wanted a three-mode Russian/Hindi/English layout, how could I do that without editing a config file?)

Xterm & bidi

Spent quite some time staring at the ECMA specification for how-to-do-bidi-in-a-terminal and failing to understand it.

Can we have less flamewars in the diary entries please?
