Geez! Making a good interface for getting at this data in an async. way is tough! Not the kind of thing I thought would be challenging, but it's slow going.
I always thought, back when I was programming mostly for Macintosh, that if only I worked on a machine with real task scheduling, I'd never have to deal with a "completion routine" again. But these callbacks in GNOME VFS are basically the same thing.
I checked out the Lord of the Rings trailer. Pretty cool. But it won't be in theaters until December 2001. To put that in perspective, my daughter will be almost 2 years old (22 months) by then! I think that means she'll be talking? Yowza!
I'm thinking about posting a little something about "Preferences" vs. "Settings", a little musing about user interface. I think people would like it, but it's hard to find the time. I guess I'll get around to it eventually.
It's funny to actually have a place to put a (mostly programming) diary. It's nothing compared to my wife's journal.
I made what I call a "programer's typo" today, typing "pointer" in IRC when I meant "point". I think you should get some kind of hacker merit badge when you make enough of those mistakes.
