Music (mostly harpsichord), bicycling, Go (weiqi, that is, the 4000 years old east-Asian game) and hacking, ecology, greenery, socialist ideology. Daughter Solja (5 1/2 months at the time of this writing), SO Kirsti. That's mostly it, I guess.

No diary for a while - just too busy. Now rethinking the graphics architecture for gzz one more time, the reason being that the move to OpenGL (in addition to java graphics) is going to be quite interesting. Flobs should be visible, as well as depth but how to wrap all this into a coherent whole is a really interesting problem. I've started a living article to discuss this design as it evolves.

Solja can now crawl forwards!

Whew.. intense concentration for a while to make the TextCloud window persistent (of course along with all other Canvas toplevel windows). Now to get rid of the SimpleClient crud and move to a completely structure-oriented way of doing things.

Solja seems more and more interested in the computer... she has already typed the "sign of the geek(ess)" when typing once: I looked at what she typed and immediately recognized "/.". Wow...

Ok, TextCloud editing now works - at least for a while. There seem to be some problems still but first I have to take a look at making the extra window that's created persistent. Which means deciding on the first cut of the representation of windows in the structure.

Non-military service is set to start on 31st of July - BIG trouble for my schedule. Will have to see what I can do about it.

I've had to help several people get CVS running on windows. Why is it so effing difficult? Because ssh and CVS should work together but windows has been planned so that programs CAN'T work together in any way. They can display windows inside each other's "documents" but you can't assemble a working whole easily.

I really wish someone'd make an easy-to use windows CVS+SSH setupper. But I don't do windows and so don't most other people who need these tools...

48 hours without computers. Whew. Now on train to Helsinki, posting this on a break from Gzz. Line breaking now works reasonably well for the demo case. Animation IS sorely needed though, because rebreaking the lines makes the text jump when just moving the cursor. Not good.

Gzz now has an XOR cursor - another little thing to help you click the right place quick enough. Animation for text (though there is the problem of dragging with the mouse: probably UpdateManager should know whether there's a mouse drag going on) and REAL cut&paste will be next. That will be exciting: finally a REAL writing tool. Or the beginnings of one.
