OK, long time no write, and a bunch of news.

Gadgets
First, we're now 3 people in class (11th grade), with a PalmIIIc. Thats cool, but I miss my PalmV, it was so small and nice, and fitted in my hand nicely. Also, I'm the second person in school to have a MP3 player. Though the other one got some weird Korean thingy, and we were reading the docs, they are hilerious.
Hacking
Anyhow, as you guessed, I hardly hacked all that week. Just fixed a couple of bugs in my sENCRet (a PalmOS app I wrote for a friend), and that was today, during school. (Thanks god for technology).
0.95
No 0.95 yet. Got a couple of more fixes from Bodnar42. No complaints from me - works like a charm, stable as a rock here. Somebody needs to shake jwise into releasing it already.
Pink Floyd
Found a site, with a really amazing interpretation of The Wall. Though my interpretation matched 90% of it, some of the added stuff I've seen there is really amazing. Pink Floyd's The Wall: A Complete Analysis

Hacked a bit on Walk500 - added a clist with categories and other stuff. So far, Walk500 is better then the Rio500 guy's utitility... Thats cool. I'm going to talk jwise into releasing 0.95 now - development on it has slowed down, and the icon themes/file transfer/multi-party chat seem to get only small fixes now... So we're pretty ready for a release. It will be one of our best releases so far.

Been busy with "real-life"(tm). Anyway, hacked a tiny bit on crescendo yesterday, going to hack a bit on Walk500 today. Gotta ask terral for permission to check-in stuff into the Crescendo CVS. hadess is just one more person to call me insane. Its good that he knows I'm insane so quickly. ;) Converted some of my Audio-CDs to MP3 for the Rio. I like it very much so far. And I'm still Palm-less :( It sucks. Big time. Anyway, off to hack.

Damn, couldn't really hack today :( School, plus hanging out, plus an exam tomorrow, plus lack of sleep yesterday. (I haven't slept for 37 hours now... Going to sleep soon)... Plus I gave my Rio to a friend... And Jeff submitted (gar) 2 more bugs to sf.n... Going to take a look at them later.

Been busy with real life... Been accompanaid by my new Rio500. The console rio_* utitilies got boring, and I found a nice program (though in its early stages) by hadess, hacked on it a bit... Will do more stuff. Its 5:30am, I couldn't really sleep, had a bunch of news and other real-life related bullshit on my head... Need to wake up at 7am. Cool stuff. The 1st of next month is the deadline of one of my projects, and I'm pretty sure it won't make it... Since I rarely see my computer lately. I bet my computer misses me. Or not. Life without a PDA sucks... I miss my PalmV, and can't wait to get my Prism working... I think thats it for now. Will give away more details as "life" (To quote Megadeth: Life? What do you mean life? I ain't got no life!) progresses.

OK, the multi-party chat rocks. Made a couple of remarks to Olivier... Closed some bugs... Nothing to see here, move along. Anyway, I think I'll buy a Prism here, not in the US... And return that broken Prism... A color screen is too falwky to live without warranty :( And I gotta buy a recharable battery for my Rio. I wanted to say something else, but I can't remember what ;)

OK, this thing seems to work... Thats cool. Got my Rio yesterday. Got my Prism. My prism's screen broke the first day :( That sucks HUGE time. At least I've got some music to listen to. Will rip all my Audio-CDs later...

WOAH, big news. Olivier sent me the first version of the multi-party chat. Ryan has been testing it already. This OWNZ THE GEGLS FIFTH CORN. Anyway, I'm getting my Prism today. I'm slipping on my deadline on another project. That sucks. Fixed some bugs in GnomeICU yesterday - got tired of paying projects. Spent the weekend on 2 parties in a row - was cool.

Been busy with Palm hacking lately... Built some cool paid stuff... Built some small non-pay thingy - will get it on my page soon, under the GPL. Will probably work on GnomeICU tomorrow.

I'm pretty sure not many will be able to figure what the heck were I talking about, though there is a meaning there:

<NetHunter> Stardate 20001110.3
<NetHunter> I think I have figured out the STG algorithm.
<NetHunter> This will allow us to communicate with the lower
life forms known as STGs.
<NetHunter> Those life forms inhabit most of our old home,
"The Earth".
<NetHunter> They allow the local STGs (in the other meaning)
to reproduce.
<NetHunter> It will allow us to figure out our own roots.
<NetHunter> Hopefully, we're pretty far from them, in terms
of civilization.
<NetHunter> This is ABS speaking.

To check the 2 meanings of STG, ask me in person, or ask L3ECH on Undernet ;) ABS means "Automatic Breaking System". In Russian - "Tormoz" ;)

OK, getting a Visor Prism soon. Hacking? The shortcuts are finished - they blink, drag'n'drop, and stuff. I got another weird theme. Its called Your-A-D**k. You don't want to see it. For conclusion - out of 7 themes, 2 are unapproporiate for inclusion anywhere. BTW - take a look at Project NetHunter. They want to rebuild me. Gotta send them a wishlist.
