life

    Well, since last I've spent a weekend being slightly sick (think I got the Bolivian DeathPlague from Ramiro), watched dvd's all day with Ian ("The Filth and The Fury" and "Pi"). Other than that, it's been pretty much slacking around on my part. Been going to the kilowatt a lot (apparently so often now, that I occasionally get a free beer from Karla, what a wonderfull person!) went to a fun houseparty which was more or less in a Wallgreens parking lot somewhere on 3rd Street (party got shut down by SFPD around 4am).

    I was supposed to be leaving for .dk today, but alas Eazel must have felt my time was so valuable that they chose not to send me (røvhuller), so I'm still in my cube. But I'll be taking of for some solitude hiking over the next few days, spending my birthday in the second best company available (myself), some books, fresh air and optionally some snaps.

    We're still having fun with our property manager and the roofdeck (short summary is, that we thought we would have access to the roofdeck, but it turned out that only the topfloor appartment can use it, unfortunately our lease says we have access to it), he basically will not let us use it, so now we're at the point were we're considering filing a "reduction of services" suit with help of the SF Tenants Union to get a rent decrease or at least just to raise hell to ensure he/they don't get away with dicking us around too easily.

    The office is pretty different these days, empty and a lot of people have moved around to be closer to each other. We now also have a lounge with the bar and a fishtank, I've expanded my territory to where mfleming used to sit, so now I too have a cozy little corner in which I can sleep in my beanbag.

    And on the good side was, my muse sent me a package with two excellent items for me, that made my day.

    Tja, som sagt er jeg temmelig bitter over ikke at være på vej til danmark lige nu, der var så mange jeg gerne ville se igen... Næsten alle som skulle have været afsted til konferencen fik et nej, kun nogle få kom afsted. Begrundelsen var, at det ville være ufedt for biksen af miste så mange arbejdsdage lige nu, hvilket lyder ok, på den anden side er det ikke just fordi vi er ved at slå os selv ihjel, tværtimod...

    Men hey, jeg tager revance senere på året.

    (summary for the danish impaired : fuck off).

hacking

    Played around with writing a piece of python (evil language) thingy that talked to the trilobite-eazel-install-service corba object, I really don't like python now.

    Fixed various bugs in libeazelinstall.

    Still waiting for a pilot-link release so I can release a new gnome-pilot.

    Think I've found a bug in glibc's writev, will mail mailinglists next week.
