Hacking: Finished the Gnapster modifications, but before I make a patch I want to see if I can avoid making Gnapster require libxmms. I would imagine this is possible, and would make my patch more likely to be accepted. On Polegame, I modified the timer code (fairly critical to gameflow) to run under Linux.. time.h allows much cleaner code than the Windows stuff I'm porting!

Annoyance: I finally compiled one of the 2.4.0 test kernels (test 9) to get USB support working for my friend's new toy.. Unfortunately my network card (DE205 / Etherworks 3) is no longer supported. Some digging reveals that back in 2.3.45, a bunch of new code was accepted into the driver (ewrk3.c), but at the same time, Config.in was changed so that you never see the option to compile it in. Manually editing .config (wow, just like the old days) allows me to get it in, but it doesn't compile. I have no idea what to do about this.

Movies: Have watched quite a few since last week.. Of these I highly recommend Rouge (red) (of course, see the beginning two movies of the trilogy first:) and Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run). I have been meaning to see Lola for a while, and as it was playing at a local independant theater, I went to see it. Unfortunately, on the way home, I lost my bike computer, so I put up a couple of signs to test peoples' honesty.

Life: My sister was in town last weekend, so we went out for various meals and activities. Unfortunately she sprained her ankle on Friday night so on Saturday we went to the hospital.. It's apparently much better now. Also went to Alia's birthday party on Saturday night.
