4 Sep 2002 walters   » (Master)

Whee. Long time no diary entry. Well, I've been busy :) Since the job market sucked so bad, I took most of the summer since graduating off, and I've spent a lot of time hacking. I've really gotten back into GNOME, in a big way. I'm trying to get away from using Emacs for everything.

So what have I been hacking on? Well, my current favorite project is Rhythmbox, which kicks XMMS' ass all over town. I'm presently working on internet radio support, for which I've had to hack GStreamer. Let me just say that GStreamer is an amazing piece of software.

However, during the above project, I've been distracted by NetHack more than once. While playing using the GNOME frontend, I realized that it was one of the few remaining GNOME 1 apps left on my desktop. So I started porting it to GNOME 2, and I'm pretty much done.

Other than that I've been excercising a lot, especially skating. I got new detachable rollerskates that just totally rule. Many people on campus have asked me about them.

That's it for now. It's about 5am, and time to sleep....
