Well, spent most of the evening on PyOpenGL and TTFQuery, with some cleanup work in OpenGLContext as well. New release of TTFQuery that works around a bug in FontTools. PyOpenGL 2.1.0 is getting closer, with the major change being compilation tweaks to try to tell the user what's wrong when the configuration doesn't work, ...
Dinner with Shiva and Shademan was pleasant, went to see "50 First Dates", which was surprisingly funny, not particularly cerebral, but funny. Went to have lunch with grams this afternoon, snooker game was very close, 5 point spread in the end. Been trying to set up SSH-tunnelled VNC for my desktop for when I'm away, ...
Well, Delcina's coming over in 20 minutes. I've been up since 5am and haven't really even sat down to work yet. A bit late now. Think I'll watch Saturday morning cartoons until she gets here. Mmmm cartoons.
Been working on refactoring the importer all day as I port the second import-type to using it. Mostly just lots of shuffling code around so it can be shared and finding ways to eliminate the custom handling of individual classes.
Altogether one of my more enjoyable evenings in months. I think that pretty much puts a cap on my (come to think of it, rather long, as it started at 4am this morning) day.
It's been 3 months since I've seen her, almost as long for Shiva, longer for Neda and Nousha. Honestly, how is a man, once exposed, supposed to be content while out of the presence of such beauties? I've been floating most of the day, and even the rather frustrating process of getting Debian Linux installed ...
Okay, according to the IHTribune (silly layout alert), a recent poll found that, among other things, 7% of Americans had never heard of the European Union.
What the heck! I'm impressed that someone even thought to ask. I mean, who would have thought that people could be so totally asleep on foreign affairs as to ...!-->!-->
As I'm sure everyone and their dog has linked to now, Groovy is an attempt to create a JVM language with some of the characteristics of Python and/or Ruby, but hewing to the "java way". So far I haven't been particularly impressed, but I suppose I should actually download and play with it some day.
Knoppix, as many of the none of you will surely know, is a bootable Debian Linux CD. It is also one of the easier ways to install Debian, you boot into the full Linux environment off the CD and run a (rather primitive) script to install to the hard-disk.
Sat down and did the review and final edit of the metaclass presentation this morning before work. I have more hope that it will fit in the time-slot. Basically if I only hit the top-level bullets and gloss over the sample code we'll be fine.
