Hacked on Iagno II a lot in the past few days. Sure, it's meaningless fluff and not very important on the grand scale of things, but it's fun. It was gratifying to get a couple plugins submitted already (I mailed people 2 days ago).

I committed the "Swedish Chef" plugin (that's possibly only a codename, we'll see) yesterday. It's a lot better than any of the players that were included in Iagno. I'm still trying to beat it. I played Iagno a lot, but against the old computer players it was hardly a learning experience.

So anybody who's interested should check out the gnome-games head from GNOME cvs and give it a whirl (especially if you thought Iagno was too easy). Also, if you're interested in writing a plugin player, either drop me a line or just read the random player code (simple but demonstrates everything) and surprise me.

Sigh... very little sucks more than watching two sides of a flame war both stick their fingers in their ears and claim the other side isn't listening...

Well, after a long-ish respite from most free software development, it's time to get back into the swing of things.

So, working along those lines, I got Miguel to fix my broken GNOME cvs account, started hacking gnome-games again, and promptly ran into a gdk-pixbuf bug.

Instead I've sent off a patch for gweather (what a cool applet!), built some deb packages of unstable GNOME stuff, and am patiently waiting on #gnome for my bug to get fixed.

I don't want anything here, really, but if I empty it out totally, I break my homepage and poor raph has to fix it. So this entry sucks.
