23 Feb 2003 walters   » (Master)

Last week was pretty crazy, and I didn't go to the gym at all until yesterday. It felt great though to finally get some good exercise in. I am going to try to get back into going every other day, instead of just two times a week or so.

I've been getting a number of netRhythmbox crash bugs, but they've resisted my attempts to track them down. Very frustrating.

So, my most recent project is to try to get a decent stream API into GNOME. I wanted to be able to load .pls files over HTTP in netRhythmbox, and parsing just became an enormous pain using the straight GnomeVFS API.

I finally got Gnopernicus to build; I am planning to get it uploaded to Debian RSN. It requires a CVS version of at-spi, though. It would be nice if these people made releases.

Added two new email addresses to my collection: walters@penguinppc.org and cwalters@gnome.org. I love collecting email addresses! Although, I guess there is a drawback to this: someone recently decided to send a bug report to every single one, because they couldn't decide which one to pick. Hm.

I am totally in love with both the "Smokey Blue" and "Spheres and Crystals" GNOME 2.2 themes! A big kudos to their authors for making my desktop look sweet.

School has been going fairly well. This math class has turned out to be much harder than I thought it would be, though. I thought medium-level graph theory and combinatorics would be easy, but there's some subtle stuff there.

Teaching is still fun. My students are particpating in class a lot more, which is nice. They seem to be learning things faster; I felt they understood arrays right away. It's really a gratifying experience to help people learn.

Well, back to math homework...
