So jorn told me that SomaFM stopped broadcasting today. Killed by the RIAA. SomaFM had cool and special webcasts like BeatBlender and GrooveSalad. Internet Radio is dying at the moment and the RIAA also managed to destroy AudioGalaxy. By listening to broadcasts such as SomaFM and by downloading music and listening to it, I learned about new and cool music. Which I would actually buy if I liked it. And I sure bought a lot of CDs after hearing some of it via the Internet. And I'm pretty sure a lot of other people also did this (in fact, there was a study saying that users of file sharing networks started buying more CDs, see this page).

Wooohooo. I graduated today. I'm like very happy. Looks like I need to update my notes here someday now :).

Am also working now. I'm allowed to decide myself when I go to work. So that's pretty relaxed. (so I never managed to arrive before 10am yet :).

So I finished my finals a while ago. Eventually I passed too.

Cool thing is that I can hack without having to worry about school till September. I'll prolly spend the time working, hacking on GTK+ and hacking on some personal stuff.

Actually, my diary is pretty boring (:.

Lots of learning the last few days. My finals start tomorrow. I hope everything will go well.

I'm looking forward to the parties and the free time (time to hack!! :) afterwards. And of course leaving school and going to university.

About yesterdays Pim Fortuyn shooting.

I think berend is sort of misinformed. Please read thomasvs' response for more accurate facts.

Maybe I should start keeping a diary here or something. Not really sure yet.

jrb and I started working on a roadmap for the new GtkTreeView stuff. It seems the GtkTreeView will get some really nice new features in 2.2 and 2.4.

Other than that I started working on my finals. Looks like it isn't going to be too hard for most subjects.

So after hours of debugging I finally got the GtkTreeModelSort kind of working. It's a kind of frustrating debugging, that's why it took a _long_ time ...

Other than that, I'm also working on GtkTreeModelFilter know. Which starts to work. Fun.

I created this account today ... :)
