Oh dear, oh dear...

Within last days, I've done every possible screwup I can easily imagine... I feel as if my IQ had dropped by 60 or so (leaving it nicely just below -10 or something).

I made a new GIMP tutorial, but that's infortunately both a) incompherensible and b) obvious. No way I can allow things like that. ::sigh:: I wish I had a working GIMP-Perl + some documentation for it, I would script that stuff.

(Speaking of which, why does all GTK-related stuff have holey, if nonexistent, documentation? Last time I checked, glib was not documented at all; GTK-Perl doesn't have a POD, just some example code I couldn't make sense of because I have had too much coffee recently... ::sigh:: Repeat after me, now: Documentation gooooood. Documentation our frieeeeend. Wooorshiiiip dooocumeeeentss. Sorry if I'm whining too much...)

I also made something a bit more interesting - emphasis on "a bit". A small Perl script that checks if DRI is in use, and if not, runs the specified program, else it'll display a warning dialog (hence GTK-Perl whine above; this UI was built with Glade). This is mostly for menu use. I had a Nasty X11 Crash a few days back when I tried to use xawtv when DRI was in use...

OO Programming course assignment (exam tomorrow) report: Some Java objects were refined, some nice EOFException dilemmas were encountered, random "this is not Perl, grrrr" whining, and such. Nothing amazing... This will work. (Fortunately they said it needs to be turned in "before May", so I have some time left... =)

Now, not a drop more coffee or I'll need to see a doctor... =)
