Finally got off my ass and did a bit of hacking. Fixed a couple small bugs in gedit, and also a couple in nautilus that were really annoying. I also tried out thomasvs' new audio properties tab, and jamesh's font stuff for nautilus. It's great to see people doing really kick-ass stuff like this.


I have this portable mp3 player that I've been fighting with lately to make it work in Linux. Apparently, the thing is using a scanlogic chip to do the usb->ide stuff. There is a driver for said chip in the kernel. However, something is screwed up with the firmware in my player, and I have to flash it if I want it to work with Linux. Of course, the utilities they provide to do this are totally crappy, and only work in windows 98 (not 2000 or XP even). I am not happy.

I am meeting next week with a professor in the CS dept. about my independent study project. My goal is to basically create a replacement for FAM. There are some difficult issues to deal with, but I am really looking forward to giving it a shot. I will probably hack on it a bunch over christmas break (I get about 3 weeks), but I would like to get a bunch of GNOME stuff done in that time too (I am feeling deprived).
