Work Work Work

Stayed up till about 2 this morning working. phew. The code isn't great, but a whole lot of problems were fixed and I am going to make a major release on SourceForge in about 2 weeks. The people around here really like it and it is about to go into testing. Lots of bugs, lots of bugs.

Unix Unix Unix

I think that I saw the new Unix guy around here. As soon as I am sure, I am passing him the backups. Apparently the guy had a long weekend. We needed to install some patches on one of the machine and he had no clue what he was doing. Applying one patch took him 6 hours, and after that they just gave up when he still coudn't figure out how to install a HP-UX depot. Not shitting about that.

And School

Just missed a class. Had to work. Well, I have an exam next Tuesday and not showing up might have not been the best idea, eh? Well, I have another class in about half an hour I guess I should make.


I have asked this before, but why doesn't gnome-vfs-ssh use the pty? I have written a hack that makes a password dialog work and pass through a pseudo terminal. This is what the KDE guys do with fish. I am asking here because I know there are a whole lot of GNOME guys that post here. I would like to send in my patch, but I have assumed that the GNOME guys haven't done this before is because it might not be portable.
