The above quote is the punch line of an old story about the power of art: an old blind beggar begs for money from an artist, and instead of some change, he writes him something on a paper and says it will bring him more money. Some months pass by, and they meet again, and the beggar asks him what he's written on that paper since his income has tripled since he keeps showing it, and the artist tells him all he's written on it, is "Spring is coming, and I won't be able to see it".
I have no idea why I decided to begin with that.

read-only?) and the PixBuf canvas item (I haven't figured
out yet how
to do libart affine transformations on a GdkPixbuf -- I
should somehow make an ArtPixBuf from a GdkPixbuf)
- Began testing of the person managment/diary entries
- I restarted Blade Runner, and already found
ways. Maybe this "replay value" stuff turns out
not to be
bullshit after all.
- I should begin learning tomorrow.
- Disturbing open source power play I shouldn't be
about. Can ruin your whole day. 'nuff said.
