- Free Software
SyntaxPolice and I have been hacking a ton on our apt tree. It basically works. So hopefully fairly soon Debian users will get completely secure software updates. Last time we sent the patch jgg rather trashed it, but we've realized that he was completely right, and hopefully all the issues are fixed now.
I really wish I'd get some time to hack on Rhythmbox again.
I've been playing with arch a bit more lately (I'm using it for a school project), and I must say I'm impressed. I was getting frustated by the limitations of Subversion (mainly its centalization). Arch has some weird things about it (like its strict archive/category/branch/version system), and that to do a commit you have to first do 'larch make-log', edit the file it generates, then 'larch commit'. But I think I'm getting used to it. It definitely has a good overall architecture I think.
School looks like it should be fun this quarter; almost all my clases involve some sort of programming, which makes me happy. This "Advanced Operating Systems Laboratory" class looks like it's going to be completely trivial. Our big project for the quarter is to write a simple shell. I mean seriously, I could like do that in my sleep.
