Palm

I received a PalmPilot IIIxe over Christmas from my wife and my in-laws. Thank you! I have been spending much time loading it with programs and generally trying to organize my life.

Hacking

I have been working on a personal version of GnomePM without the multiple account capability. I am experimenting with a few things and I may release it as a personal project so that I can get my feet wet. I have been an observer for a long time and I feel like making a contribution back.

Started looking at GnomePM over the weekend. Fixed two problems in the most current code in CVS. The first problem involved GnomePM crashing when the user did not select a portfolio in the "Open Portfolio" dialog. The second problem involved the symbol lookup function failing to print out the results in the list box.

I just ordered a copy of Debian 2.2.

This weekend I plan on ridding myself of Slackware for good. I have no problem with it though. I have used Slackware for two years, but I am looking forward to a more automatic packaging system. I have been having a bear of a time installing Helix Gnome.

After I finish getting my machine back in order, I plan to take a deeper look into gnome-vfs and gconf. At my day job, I have implemented a virtual file transfer library for the product I work on. I completed this far before I knew of gnome-vfs. I feel I could be of assistance with the project.
