Been spending the past week hacking a ton of Apache and SVN
code. The Apache stuff is mostly DAV infrastructure,
cleaning, revising, etc. Also been working on APR stuff and
(just tonite) the SDBM support in Apache. Oh, and I
introduced some new DBM cover functions for Apache use,
then spun mod_dav_fs to use those rather than hard-coding
for SDBM. Basically, this means that a simple ./configure
switch allows mod_dav to use GDBM now. (mod_dav 1.0 has a
#define you can change, but no autoconf support; Apache 2.0
tossed that #define and just waited for these covers;
well... they're done now).
Been watching various movies... Gladiator, M-I 2, and some
crappy late night movies. Actually, the first two were
rather mediocre, too. Gladiator had great scenery,
character development, etc, but the plot line was just a
bit too obvious and the movie seemd a bit too long
(although I'll give it the benefit of the doubt since
character dev was very important, and that simply
takes time). M-I 2 was eye candy, but the whole romance
thing was rather bogus. Like they're trying to turn Ethan
in some 007 playboy or whatever. Sorry... just won't work.
Last weekend, O'co and I grabbed some new Playstation games
and hung out for a while playing them. It'll be kickass to
get a PS2... the graphics will be so much better.
Of course, they simply don't exist right now, for all
intents and purposes. I'm just going to wait until after
xmas to get one, when the demand eases up relative to the
supply. I doubt there will be any "after xmas specials" on
the bad boys, but I can hope.
Spent the weekend working on an xmas list web app. The
family can now enter their wish list online, and everybody
can see it, mark the items off, etc. It even filters on
families; I can be part of my family and Anni's family, but
not worry about seeing my brother-in-law's family. It's
pretty neat. I've been thinking about putting the stuff
over on SourceForge as a "gift exchange" app. Hell, it is
basically a neat gift registry.
Thanksgiving was kickass. Some friends were in town, and we
all got together and filled ourselves till we nearly
popped. What an insane ritual :-). Of course, drinking all
of that wine was a definite bonus.
I gotta say that satellite TV just rules sometimes.
Normally, I have a big conflict at 9pm between Angel and
Dark Angel (heh; coincidence?). But wait! Angel comes on
the WB, of which I have three channels from across the US.
I get Angel at 6pm, 7pm, and 9pm. So... I watch Angel at
7pm, Buffy at 8pm, then Dark Angel at 9pm. It works out
And yah... it just has to be said: Jessica Alba is
definitely hot. Of course, I still carry my official "Salma
Hayek Groupie" badge, but Alba makes for a more interesting
TV series. :-)
Speaking of sexism ;-) ... has anybody ever wondered why
all the women on TV always where clingy tops?
Seriously. Ever see an episode of Friends where the women
don't have tight tops on? Pick a show, and take a look.
Well, okay... maybe not all shows. But hell... I was
noticing it on X-Files on Sunday. Even Sculley was where a
tight top. Sure, a jacket over that for half the episode,
but my point is... I believe the costuming department for
these shows specifically provide clothes to (effectively)
put the women on display.
Tomorrow will be kind of busy. Got the painter here, gonna
have a nice meal at home with the woman. Gotta take the car
for a smog check and then get plates for it. etc etc.
Thursday, Anni takes off for a trip to Seattle for five
days. Bummer, but that does mean that I'll be a little
coding junkie for the weekend. Still have a ways to go on
SVN to hit the Dec7 milestone...
