'Twas two days before Christmas, and I'm at home alone.
Well, not completely alone; one of itp's
friends is staying over at our place temporarily. So, I
decided to not go home over the holidays so that I can
instead go home for about two weeks in January and get some
skiing in and stuff. However, this means that now I have
plenty of time to clean up the filthy mess that we call our
apartment. Yay. I'm starting the Massive Orderlization
Project (aka MOP) today. And then, after I'm done, we're
hiring a maid; the three of us combined are obviously not
enough to keep this place clean. Yay.
This being Christmas reminds me of the many many people that
I should get into contact with that I just haven't because
I'm lazy. Sigh. Even with email, I don't know why I can't
just get myself to write out a quick email or letter or
something. Well, maybe I'll try to do something about that
I might end up going skiing in New Hampshire with Mike
Whitson on Monday; that should be fun. I haven't gone
skiing for two seasons, so it will definitively be exciting.
I hope I survive.
Work goes good; finished my large chunk o' rewrite, and then
spent most of this week writing a whole bunch of
verification scripts, editing tools, and the like. Quite
excited for LWE in January.
A few weeks ago I hacked up a Bonobo video player component
using the framework I had done for gnomotion; it works quite
well, except for A/V sync, which I will get to at some
point. It uses libquicktime for the QT stuff; the library
has some issues that I will have to deal with (like, there
is no way to tell it "you're going be streamed this file in
chunks, it will never be written to disk"), but that can be
overcome. I need to write up some white papers.
Moved into additional office space across the hall; I now
have a full desk to myself, with drawers and the like! It's
a large space, and should hold us over nicely until we can
move in February to our new space. Yay.
