Sorry for not posting for so long. Today I started working
on a list mode for EFM. It's been suprizingly easy so far,
and I'm worrying that the last 10% may be 90% of the work. I
haven't told raster yet since I haven't been able to contact
him, but I'll discuss it with him and mandrake tomorrow.
Since my last diary entry I have made minor contributions to
XMMS, X-Chat, and hxd. I'm enjoying this variety, and plan
to work more on miscellaneous applications that I find
useful such as these.
VA hasn't been working me too hard, and I've been having a
great time. As August draws near I am wondering how I will
ever be able to go back to school in September :-(.
I've had some adventures with web browsers lately. My
self-imposed policy of only using free applications at work
has forced me into mozilla, and I've been looking for
alternatives. I checked out GtkHTML from CVS, and I must say
that it is the fastest graphical HTML engine I have ever
used. I'm very excited about this project. But I'm quite
bitter that they made something so useful depend on Gnome.
Silly helixcode people :(. The stuff in CVS is nicely
experimental, but I don't dare use it for everyday surfing.
Mozilla is holding up well for that, and I'm reporting all
of the problems I run into. I still have major ideological
problems with mozilla, as I like small and fast applications
but mozilla implements its own whole damn toolkit. As for
Yuck. The developers claim that if not for this aproach, it
would only have been developed on Win32, but Mozilla sucks
so much more than Comunicator 4.x (which used sane, native,
consistant widgets) that I really have my doubts.
