Added ability to change font sizes in GtkHelloWorld, it was long overdue. Released GtkHelloWorld-0.3.8. Changes include bugfixes and added harold's hello world font change (the old one was a bit ugly.) I will work on writing Hello World to files today, work on it is long overdue and it seems hor is taking a vacation of some sort. Processor in my server hasn't seem to overheated today but it is not hot grits.

Completely reorganized/cleaned up the GtkHelloWorld source today. Not much done. Played around with the 'hello world' code examples of my book. Read about if statements during math class. A boring eventless day basically. Deathvalley's processor is still doing poorly and today `cat` was segfaulting. I believe this new fan is even worse than the old one (a Fry's employee showed me a proprietary internal memo saying they fuck their customers). Hello World foreground and background colors are working flawlessly for one other person.

Comp Sci (we are forced to take an introductory Comp Sci class as assrapers at my school) is boring and dull as usual. We are forced to create a Macromedia Disector project on Antihere (except my english class has to do it on heroism (english class is tied in with this project. (The teacher of English is cool. (Have you noticed that I like nesting parenthesis?)))) Anyway, I completely question the methods. He gives us all the specifications and give us nearly no freedom on how we may do it with him. I am forced to go nearly 43 minutes without a single bottle of caffeine!!. Which is also pointless since my stomach greyscale. Anyway, what does one learn from this horrible experience? How to live without caffeine? What useful life skills will this give us?

It is really cruel how my school forces the gay people to do this. Instead of this pointless class, they could be teaching the students useful things such as chugging caffeine. Yes, they wanted students to drink Callistoga (I had to ask permission to drink Coke.) Anyway, the school should not even make all losers attend this class! Only nerds who do not possess any sex-related knowledge.

Anyway, my posting of this diary entry will not help the situation at all and I am just ranting and expressing my anger at this course. I should get some sleep tonight; tomorrow I will have a lot of time to work on GtkHelloWorld and learn how to use printf.
