since im not certified enough to post to the latest article,
ill post my thoughts here.
i agree 100% with Iain. read his posts.
my problem with the whole situation is that it is a
Russian citizen being detained by an American law. now, im
no lawyer, or even a law abiding citizen all the time, but
that seems like utter bullshit. he does his thang in
russia, comes to america, is arrested, and is still
detained. what am i missing? (please dont answer, its
completly retorhical, and i dont want to see a lot of 'free
dimitry' things in peoples diaries)
sigh. the whole thing is just so.. stupid. hell, thinkgeek
already has a tshirt for it. hell, i felt better saying
friday afternoon, i got the "great" idea to use gtk/glib 2.0
for prontoc, since its going to be out "soon" anyways, and
the switch should be done sooner rather than later. there
are glib features i can really make use of, and gtk features
i can work around. makes
fast forward to the present, sunday night. gtk 2.0 is the
most over complicated, ugly, bastardized pos ive ever seen.
well, ok, maybe not. but.. god damn. the "new, flashy,
super cool, solve-all-your-problems" tree/list widget is
slower than GtkCList! i thought this was one of the major
gripes about CList? its *SLOW* it would be really nice to
have a Fast table widget. like.. oh, i dunno, ETable,
without having to go install a dozen gnome libraries. i do
have respect for the new Text widget, cause its cool. but
that doesnt help my current state much.
in still other news, i saw the new planet of the apes
movie. it was good. worth 5.50. could it have been
better? yes. could it have tried to follow the original to
any extent? yes. could it have had a better ending? yes.
did it? no. so what?
i go to college/university
in 3 weeks. i called my roommates last week, and was..
dumbfounded. is it just me, or is the idea of
purchasing/renting a microwave for a dorm a foolish
endevour? why on earth would you need such a thing? plan
on buying a lot of meals, nuking them yourself? my
roommates were.. shocked to hear me say "im bring my
computers, my music, and my clothes. thats it. why? what
else would i need?" apparently people these days need lots
of things, like.. a TV. and VCR/DVD player. and a
Microwave. and an Expensive Stereo System with Lots of
Bass. and Furniture. sigh. there had damn well better be
enough room for me in my room.
