Freecell Solver

Adrian returned from his vacation and reported that the command line chopper did not work for him. After a few tests I discovered it could not handle a situation where a \\\n combination was followed by whitespace. I fixed it, and sent it to him, but have yet to hear from him.

I posted a message on Linux-IL, asking how I should render nested navigation bar menus in HTML, in a correct way. I received an answer that it should be done using <ul> and <li> combinations. By playing around with CSS a bit, I was able to build such functionality into the Freecell Solver site, instead of the &nbsp; hack that existed there until now. What I did see trying to look for the answer was that many sites still used  's, whitespaces or images that contained them. That's not good.

I also took some time to write the TODO list for the next version. It's in the CVS in case you want to take a look.

Haifux Meeting

Was very nice. Orr gave an entertaining lecture and we ate and drank a lot. After the lecture we placed the leftovers (quite a lot of them) in Orr's room, and took the Balloons. I was tired of carrying them, so I stopped in the Com-Net Lab and blew them using a tack.

Univ Project

I managed to get the E-mail verification to work yesterday, and today Roy and I set for some hours in the early afternoon, and implemented editing the permissions as well as a trigger to add relevant rows to them when a user is added.

We made good progress, and Roy said something about meeting me tomorrow at 11:00 or so. I'll call him and ask, just in case.
