A month later, to a day, and it hasn't gone by aimlessly.
I've successfully resurrected lxr.php.net and the daily
changelog/news updater on the new PHP machine. The only
remaning thorn is bonsai.php.net since it needs some help
from qmail and I need some help from sascha
due to my woefully inadequate knowledge of anything qmail
Inbetween work, job, employment, and profession, the new
build system for PHP-GTK got
committed. It was shamelessly stolen from PHP itself and
mutated a bit -- the end result is that PHP-GTK can support
configurable extensions based on GtkObject, such as GtkHtml,
gdk-pixbuf, and others. The only two currently bundled ones
are (surprise) gtk+ and libglade.
Nedit has always
good editor to me, so I contacted the current developers to
inquire whether they've considered making it into a Gtk+
widget. No response so far -- either they are busily hacking
away on it, or they are all in intensive care after having
busted their guts laughing at my amusing email.
Ihe PHP-GTK manual structure was finished, thanks to the
defs-to-docbook generator, and I've put up the initial
version online at gtk.php.net/manual.
only a couple of documented classes so far, but this should
make it easier to get contributors to concentrate on the
content instead of the XML tags.
Biking 25 miles every weekend has been an enjoyable
but still not as easy as I hoped it would be. The next goal
is to do 40 miles by the end of the summer.
Every week I get an urge to make myself a simple
with a couple of tools to keep track of my booklist and
other stuff, but somehow that urge keeps getting
transmogrified into something else a couple of days later.
Any tips on making myself do it?
Having joined language-dev list and hoping to impress
everyone with my erudition, I now have to fess up my lack
therof and ask, what are computed jumps?
On a less cheerful note, lately every day seems to be
like the last one. It's making me afraid that I'm starting
to lose the imagination and energy necessary to make each
day unique. I would guess that I'm not the only one who's
run into this, so what's the scoop? How do you get out of
And now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
