Unsurprisingly, updating Gnome whilst using Gnome does funny things to your desktop experience.
Learnt enough XSL today to actually do something with it. I can't understate how awesome libxml is, the tools it provides are high quality and invaluable for any XML work.
I also made some progress with Ibex today. A few patches to the core have helped but instead I concentrated more on the structure of the widget code and made some decisions that should improve working with themes.
And a surprising but welcome development on the "how does one make money from working on Free Software" front when I received an informal approach to be paid by the hour for working on Ibex, from somebody who has been monitoring the project's progress. I really hope something comes of it.
On another note it's 2:24am. I see that staying up all night Monday really fixed my sleeping pattern. Perhaps I should just try pholyphasic sleep cycles instead. (Yeah, right.)
