I've been AWOL from Debian for a while, but I plan on coming back and helping out in the near future. To get my RSA and DSA public keys, as well as a good bit of other info on me, finger

School-wise I'm currently attending Northeastern University to study for my Ph.D. in CS at the College of Computer and Information Science there. I was a student at the Georgia Institute of Technology for both my Masters of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) for which I graduated in 2004 and my BSCS which I received in 2002.

Just got my Wacom tablet working under Xfree86 4.0.1... pretty happy about that, especially since the documentation that comes with it doesn't seem to give you everything you might need.

The extract that I use is below:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Stylus"
        Driver          "wacom"
        Option          "Device"        "/dev/ttyS1"
        Option          "Type"          "stylus"
        Option          "Mode"          "absolute"
        Option          "AlwaysCore"
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Eraser"
        Driver          "wacom"
        Option          "Device"        "/dev/ttyS1"
        Option          "Type"          "eraser"
        Option          "Mode"          "absolute"
        Option          "AlwaysCore"

Then you just add the two to the ServerLayout section like so:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier      "Default Layout"
        Screen          "Default Screen"
        InputDevice     "Generic Keyboard"
        InputDevice     "Generic Mouse"
        InputDevice     "Generic Stylus"
        InputDevice     "Generic Eraser"

And voila!

Spent some more time reconfigurating this computer, putting Apache and Bind back on it. Registered a new domain name, also - Hopefully that'll be up and running soon.

This week needs to end so that I can have my four day weekend and finally start on the projects I want to do. Need to learn wml, both for work on my homepage and for my local homepage. Also need to look on the WNPP list and see if there's any packages with which I might want to start working.

Probably will still be random ramblings on here until I pick a project to work on and do so. If I'd actually sit down and do something, though, I'd probably get a lot more done... I act like I have less time than I probably actually have. Oh, well.

Pictures of my wall are now up - ALS badge and other developer caricatures and the poster Illiad made (and signed) . The shots are a bit dim, but the quality is very good; however they're 1280x960 or so.

Working more on getting my system re-set up after ALS. However, things are progressing very well. I might even have time to work on the French books I've picked up.

Meanwhile, I also need to work with LiViD/GATOS again, see if I can get them running. I've an ATI AIW 128 Pro, and GATOS is supposed to work while LiViD is still in alpha for ATI cards, but maybe, just maybe...

Once I get used to these diary entries, perhaps I'll be more profound, instead of just giving summaries of the day's events... it's a diary, but still. Debian stuff should also be done... I'd like to clean up the rules file for TiK more.

21st birthday today. Visited by the parents, then picked up some French books from a friend. Did Japanese and Perl homework, also. Need to get a digicam in here to take a picture of my wall.

ALS went well... met more of the other Debian developers, and generally had a great time. Glad to see the ones who met me last year remembered me, I was kinda surprised about that. :)

Need to get some more coding in. No project in Design of OSes yet, will get the midterm back Tuesday. NetI has homework, but I'm sure it's just more essay questions, not code. Perhaps I should try harder to come up with a project to work on. Should really clean up the xlock changes that Mercury and I made at ALS.
