*yawn* 2am hacking...I'm beginning to feel like an undergrad again :-)

COFFEE is coming on nicely, and Python is much, much more pleasant than I thought it would be. The lack of static typing hasn't bitten me yet and the one-module-per-file thing makes me feel a lot less guilty about writing code that doesn't feel very OO-ish. Not that OO isn't nice, but sometimes a parser should just be a cigar. Er, parser.

Gripe-of-the-day: Galeon (lovely as it is) is annoying me. When you open a new tab, as soon as it has loaded it grabs the keyboard focus. I've been bitten by this so many times today. Grrr to Galeon. I've only switched from Mozilla because I wanted something with a smaller memory footprint, but the HCI issue is slowly changing my mind. No doubt kirby will tell me to switch to konquerer or opera :-) Maybe it's fixed in an upgrade, or I should pull my finger out and write a bug report. Guess I'm just being a bit lazy.
