Hmmm ... while there are many things I should be doing (homework, things I promised, next article to IBM, reading/replying to email,...) I'm mostly spending my computing time on the panel again. A bunch of usability issues got fixed recently. Today made an attempt at the "menus larger then screen" thing. So I hacked something that looks sort of like what windows does except a bit different (because I was lazy). Many people have been pestering me about this so I hope it helps. I'm thinking of also adding a hack into the panel for the submenu navigation patch that Nils did unless that is backported into gtk 1.2. This is because I really want to have this for the panel menus in gnome 1.4. Other then that I've managed to do a whole bunch of maintainer-type-stuff in gnome-core/applets/libs(HEAD).
Outside of hacking, we went to some french restaurant with my parents saturday which was quite good. Today we went to some local theater to get a "culture" fix in the afternoon. Then there were some people over to dinner, so there was a bit of alcohol consumption and hitting balls with long sticks on a green table (pool). My dad god some really good home made slivovice (slivovice == plum brandy), 35 years old or so, for his birthday, which definately came in handy today. I didn't actually drink much, but now I have a headache (I wonder if it's from the slivovice, wine or beer, or perhaps from staring at gtk/panel code too long afterwards.)
