Work: Kind of designed an overall view of the
telex system, waiting to know if the main programmers are
willing to do something with it. It can be quite
intimidating when you are young and fresh :). Finally got
the damn DAT to work in the compaq server, which quickly
vanished into the depth of Opel afterwards. I hope
everything works right, I almost got no time to test the
server in the (long) run (more than a few days).
Wormhole: We pretty finished our paper about BTRC,
it rocks :).
Klosterrallye: Rewrote my set of gimp scripts,
which were slow, crappy (SIOD gets on my nerves, can't they
at least use some decent scheme interpreter) and big, to
make a nice little binary producing html with bigloo. The
html is then converted to ps with netscape (geesshh!),
html2ps produces nonusable output.
Entropia: The talk about GSM was very interesting,
with a good flow and a nice set of slides. The talking and
hardware stuff afterwards was quite fun too. And most
important of all, I heard we finally got the flat in the
Gewerbehof. This rocks, I'm gonna move all the Vaxen there
so I'll have a bit more room here.
Hadiko: I got some stuff done, mostly emailing
users about potential problems they could/would have or
already have (moving out, wrong email adress,
"selbstverwaltungs"-aliase), finished patching mirror, some
scripts and adzapper so they would work nicely in our setup
(mirror to use a ftp proxy, adzapper to forward ftp and
Hacking: Quite intensively learned LISP, which
really rocks. I appreciate all this integrated development
environment stuff, and may even try to learn emacs again :).
I also began to code some CLOS classes for my MUA, and wrote
down some ideas.
I went to the university library today, and spent almost a
whole hour just looking at some book titles. There is so
much interesting stuff out there, so much to learn, so much
systems I won't possibly ever be able to try (system 360
for example, or RSX, or system programming on the VAX 11).
This is sometimes frustrating. Nevertheless, got myself a
book about CLOS and MOP, and a book about software
engineering, testing, documentation. I really want to be
able to produce nice, industrial code :).
Life: Moving to my girlfriend's for the 1st of
May. This is gonna be nice.
