Had an interview with a tremendous software company yesterday. I'm apparently one of 3 folks up for the job, and I really hope that I get it (nothing against the other 2 chaps). I walk into their office and am greeted by a sea of monitors, all running Gnome and Emacs. My eyes got big in a hurry. I hope theirs did too, looking at me. I should know in a day or two.
LibRSVG has been coming along nicely. I think I have BiDi text working now as well as a nice shiny new CSS2 selection engine. The text engine needs a lot of work, and to that end, so does Pango. But at least Pango is at the point where I don't take a 2-second penalty hit the first time I try to render some icon's text (rendering an icon with 'Ogg' or "MP3' in it could take 2 seconds longer, I shit you not). Now if only I could decompose PangoLayouts into FT_Outlines, my world would be all fuzzy. That, and if I got that job thing I mentioned above. I think CrAppligent is contesting my Unemployment Insurance claim even though they fired me for "insubordination" (read: boss' gross incompetence, but when you're the owner, you can never be wrong...) 4+ months ago. Ticks me off.
