Have been trying to get pygame + PyDDR to work under Mac OS X 10.2 with little success - the little dock icon opens, and then closes in a spectacular lack of fireworks or crash messages or anything really at all.
Hmm. Shall wait for a little more stability and/or ease of use in that arena I think :-)

10.2 seems to be a lot faster, and the initial crash-on-wake problems have been fixed up by the security update of early this week of all things... strange but true. And all the apps look more finished and nicer, except that Mail.app has somewhat broken the ability for me to see folders on my IMAP server that have mail fed to them by procmail on the server... anyway, suffice to say that I'm now using Entourage with its somewhat superior handling of subscribed folders. The only problem with most GUI clients is their inability to handle proper threading - if anyone has a suggestion of a good threading OS X GUI client I'm all ears!


Have been feeling better this week than I have in the last three years. Huzzah for new routines and "prevention rather than cure" techniques. Getting a second (or in my case, third) doctor's opinion can be very useful. Other life is also good, with Uni group project working out very well so far (but it's been back to Java programming for me), fun parties, and generally all round good company. Yay :-)
