Most of my coding time has been spent at work. But I've
been able to find some time to work with gnome-debug. I've
decided to delay the 0.2.0 series a bit to get a few more
important bits in. Hopefully it will be ready sometime
I've also become very interested in Mark Slicker's program
analysis framework. This will definitely help with our
development environment framework.
Speaking of that, some people have recently started a new
effort to create a gnome-based development environment.
They don't seem to be focused on writing code, but rather on
creating a roadmap document. One bullet item on their
draft roadmap document:
"promote the idea of developing solutions as opposed to
tools. we need more corporate propaganda!!!"
Good for them I guess, but I don't have much hope for their
efforts. On the other hand, they've kinda forced us to get
a bit more focused, which isn't a bad thing.
I was recently hired at Helix Code. I'll starting in about
a month, at which time I'll be moving to Boston. This will
certainly be interesting.
That aside, life hasn't been much fun around here lately. I
live in an extremely boring area, and even my dialup
connection is inconsistent at best. Everybody I know (in
fact, everybody that graduated within a few years of me) is
either at school or in the armed forces now. It is really
odd not to talk to *anyone* from your basic age group for
more than a month (except for a brief discussion with an old
friend that visited here this morning). Luckily I'll be
visiting Boston next week, that should help take the edge
Also, the school is mad that I haven't paid them yet. Since
I'm not going back this year I'm not too concerned, but it
still is a pain to owe somebody money.
I've been doing a lot of reading lately.
Well, that was a long entry, but it's been awhile. I'm
still undecided on whether I should stop doing entries
altogether or do them more regularly. We'll see.
