Well it's another thanksgiving. I actually took the trouble to get up at 5:45 and see if I can pick up any good deals. I picked up a new tv for the bedroom and some bathroom furniture. The prices were negligible though. What a rat race though. Next time I'm going to Frys! :-) I also started putting the home lights. Being on the roof is no fun. One thing not to do is to use your pocket pc as a mp3 player. The damn thing kept changing volumes, run other programs it was a pain in the ass.

GNOME - Well I've been trying to hack rhythmbox for awhile and trying to add this one feature I wanted. The codebase isn't that hard to learn but working with some of the routines can be kinda confusing. All I was trying to do was add some tooltip loving and it looks like it might actually be easy to do. Today I finally figured out the part of the code that will do it. Admittedly I didn't have to try too hard it took me about 25 minutes to figure what was going on. I hope to get it up and going tonight if at all possible. I would love to see an embedded version of RB so that I can put it in my palm pilot.

I need to finish up GNOME summary so that it's ready to go by Monday. Last week was a bit of a mess since I wasn't getting all my stats. In fact I think I'm still running into trouble. Hopefully I will get it in time and I can add it again this week.

Heard in #freedesktop with Keith convincing Havoc to do something interesting with minimizing of windows. Looks like there might be some very interesting things with the new compositing manager for X. I can't wait. Too bad it doesn't support my nvidia video card. :/
