#gnome and gentoo
Yep, I triggered the "anti-Gentoo" sentiment in #gnome that voltron mentioned. Basically, nobody would help once they found out I used Gentoo. I had to struggle for 14 hours before I found someone who both knew the answer and was willing to help.

I'm sick and tired of the "j00 u$3 g3nt00, s0 j00 $u><0r" sentiment. And it's kinda funny that the only thing I've ever had problems with is Gnome...

data structures
Class is simple. I finished the meat of the last project in class... now all that's left is the UI.

Trust me, doing UI work in C sucks without a specialized toolkit.

Maybe I can turn the central code into a Unix-style utility and write another program, in another language (Perl? Python? INTERCAL?) to call it.

Today. Yay. Go Bucs.

Update: Buccaneers 48, Raiders 21, final. w00t.

Played yesterday, at the Magic Kingdom. Since I didn't want to play in my jeans (they're heavy and confining), and I don't have a decent pair of shorts, I ended up going to a tourist trap on 192 and buying a pair of swimming trunks that look approximately like 'normal' shorts.

I look like an idiot in them, but oh well. I'll get some real shorts soon.
