Univ Project

I was finally able to make sure that all the pages of Zavitan are validated. Then, I restricted the admin pages for certified users, again. (oops! forgot to put it on SSL-only site - I am fixing it as I speak)

Registration

The second registration for the winter semester starts today at 17:45. A quick calculation showed that I need one extra course if I wish to graduate after the next semester, so I'll guess I'll have to add one.

I could not understand how to operate the delayed registration feature, so I'll have to be present at home at that time.

Freecell Solver

I wrote a man page for the range solver, and also made sure the man pages are rendered with the title "fc-solve" instead of "<standard input>". (which made the generation from pod a bit uglier).

Automake caused me a few troubles when I tried to build the Makefile.in in a sub-directory. But now it works fine, and I don't know what I did to improve the situation. Oh well, who is John Galt?

Translation

I finished translating the "Fetchmail Grows Up" chapter of CatB, which gives a total of five finished chapters. Someone notified me he (or she - I can't determine it by his or her name) finished translating "How Many Eyeballs Tame Complexity" but I did not receive the text yet.

Life

Lately, with the air conditioning, I wake up at around 3-4 AM and then goes back to sleep, only to wake up at 9 AM. I really wish I could wake up earlier, so I would have time to bike in the morning.

I was able to bike yesterday's afternoon. Today, I have the courses registration and my father, my sister Michal, and I are going to a movie in the evening. Thus, I'm not going to have time to bike.
