I've been thinking I'm not well suited to GUI design, which I plan to do more often in the near future, because I use ion
as my window manager. I feel that I don't have a common usage and that in order to make my experience more "normal", I need to have resizable things. The only thing really keeping me from switching back to fluxbox
is getting everything to start. Session management is a really nice thing when you get used to it. While ion doesn't have session management, it's close enough - I make all of my gaim
windows appear in a common spot, for instance, which comes in handy because they're not popping up all over the place. I wish I had this feature in fluxbox. I'll probably end up switching to fluxbox sometime tonight or tomorrow.
Lately at work I've been struggling trying to get a Gravis Stinger working with an iPaq running familiar linux, and failing miserably. I'm not sure I'm doing it right at all, so tomorrow I resort to seeing if the controller works on a normal PC. If that works, I'm going to have to make sure my serial connection isn't completely bogus. Mabye I'm using the wrong adapter or something. I wish I had an iPaq to play with at home, it would be a bit of a help.
I find myself wanting to use vi commands in web textarea boxes, well, this one, since it's the only textarea box I write large things in.
