Ilan: Does bitching make you feel important?

I finished the picture of Spider Man. I'm starting a batman drawing now.

Also bought 'Grokking the Gimp'.

I got a wacom tablet today, so I've been goofing off in the gimp. I ended up with a half-done picture of Spider Man.

It's really a ton of fun, I wish I'd gotten one of these things sooner. My hand isn't covered in lead and ink when I'm done drawing now.

I've noticed that I only post diary entries when I'm in a bad mood. I'm not sure I like this trend. Maybe I'll change it someday. Not today though.

I assure you, I have good days. I have lots of them. I just don't write about them.

I've had a headache since friday night. It's a bit annoying.

zilch has been doing some cool stuff with bonobo-python and gIDE. I wish I had more time to play with it.

I really wish my cd player hadn't run out of batteries.

I've been up too long.

work Work's been hectic. The new build system is now live and we're pushing new packages. The evolution snapshots are running nightly and are basically working.

gide I've got a lot of changes to gIDE sitting on my hard drive that I need to commit. I wrote a bonobo-based plugin system for it, and put most of the functionality into plugins. The commit is waiting on a few name changes and a changelog, and will require some cvs surgery. blech.

life We found out from the doctors today that my little brother most likely has cancer. It's supposedly a fairly treatable type, but we don't know how far along it is.

It really sucks that this happened to this particular little brother. Anybody else in the family could deal with the daily trips to hour-away clinics and chemo and stuff with some books and a laptop. My brother *hates* being cooped up. He spends his whole life skateboarding and biking and snowboarding and stuff. It's really a shame.

Well, I move to the east coast today. I leave for my flight in about an hour and a half (2:30am pacific time), and will arrive at Logan Intl Airport at about 8:30pm eastern time. That should be "fun".

I hate packing.

Life

We found a nice apartment, and got the lease and stuff worked out. It will ready October 15 (it's undergoing renovation), right around when I'll be moving. Unfortunately the other people in the apartment will be here before then (one is already here), but they have everything worked out.

Hacking

I moved the breakpoint manager, register viewer, and stack browser to ETable. They are now much nicer to use, and the code is much smaller and cleaner.

aaronl

There seems to be quite a disagreement brewing here with respect to aaronl's little anti-gnome game. I think the issue revolves around two things. The first is Aaron's questionable technical decisions. That issue has been pretty well covered, I won't get into it.

The real problem as I see it is his deplorable attitude. Like most kids, he seems to believe that name-calling is an effective way of getting his point across. He has a history of coming on to #gnome for no other reason than to tell everyone how much he hates gnome. Combined with his complete unwillingness to listen to anyone without resorting to petty personal attacks, it is no wonder he is so widely disliked.

aaronl, you're doing yourself a disservice. Learn to act like an adult and you'll go a long way.

We went looking at apartments today. Boston is so much more expensive than where I live. Oh well.

I did a bit of work on gnome-debug today. I added some stuff to the register viewing code, including the ability to get single registers and modify registers. I fixed a bug in dryad's property setting code for the bonobo controls, and I moved the output terminal widget from dryad into gnome-debug.
