Spent tonite just setting up my compiler to build perl for the SDL Perl port, this is getting to be a bit annoying, I just can't beleive I've got to go ant get ~45 megs of s/w from the web just to get a compiler you have to pay for, to get to work properly. Although, I give MS too much by saying properly, because they could have a least upgraded there 9x 'shell' by now, errrgghhhhh. AND as a result I have to use someone elses (free) make utility, coz there's dont cut it. Argh, I never want to come back to win, and now it's flooding back why I left...
: ( :/
more stoopid things windows does, if you right click somewhere during copying a file the animation of the paper from one nice and lovely folder to another eqully nice and lovely folder still ticks by on a seperate thread, by does the ACTUALL thread thats copying the file still tick by ...... answers on a postcard purlease!!!!! (if you cant guess)
anyway, I dont like the way I feel when I try to do things in windows, I cant get wait to get back to linux. Although the thought of displaying me SDL-Perl wares on me portable down the pub for our first Southampton Perl mongers meeting gives me a slight thrill!! :)
