514 nm
More dynamic light scattering. For those who don't know what that is, it involves me sitting by a 800mW argon laser.

In the dark...

For long periods of time...

Ok, each sample takes 5 minutes, and 3 repeats + sample changing time. Not short enough to make the experiments "fast", and not long enough to do something else. I.O.W. tedium.

I wanna go back to my neutron beamlines now...

Looking at writing a little script to go through and comment all my ogg's properly...

...and I've been getting...

The Return of Imlib1
Imlib1 bug reports. Most of them have been good bug reports. Detailed, and people willing to feed back the proper information.

Then I got an email from a Debian developer taking over the package, and we had a nice chat about the Debian specific patches in their deb.

That wasn't the problem

The problem was this one. Somehow, the person who is listed on that bug got a CC or something. I simply requested that one, the bug be put in GNOME's bugzilla, and to attach the problem file to the bug.

But no. I proceeded to get chewed out for not fixing the "fscking" bug AND...get this...that I had the GALL to ask for the file to be as an attachment to the bug.

I almost ripped the guy new orifices. Note the plural. I'm so sorry that I'm not responding to your bugs I've only been notified as of 12 hours ago. I'm so sorry that your needs for a feature that is used by maybe 1% of PNGs out there isn't working. Lemme drop my research, writing my prospectus, and my LIFE for your little bug.

I have a patch in hand. I'm going to take my time with it, just for this little bastard.
