Thesis
Thesis work has been a bit slow... in part it is due to the fact that I've been distracted by other things and in part it is due to the fact that I have a bit too much on my plate: not only this whole kind of work is new to me, but also the platform on which I have to work is experimental and little documented, it's modelled in SystemC, which I have to learn about and SystemC in turns is based on C++, with which I'm not that familiar either... Lack of people showing me how to get started and able to answer my questions doesn't help.

GNOME
Managed to get a bit of work done, some patches here and there. I'm helping out with the stable branch of gedit: not much stuff, but I managed to screw up anyway, committing a little patch that broke the string freeze. I reverted it as soon as menthos made me notice.
Since I'm not a native english speaker, I'd like to underline how much I appreciate the amazing work done by the team of translators in GNOME.
