Auto-conversions and distutils (Or how I spent my afternoon)


Turns out the auto-conversion script I was given is actually pretty limited in what it does. I wound up hacking in a few extra features (such as actually using the new import wx form), but I really should have just gone ahead and rewritten it. It's using a manually-maintained mapping set that's seriously ...

Kinda late getting started today (Up all night with wxPython migration)


wxPython 2.5 is finally making the import wx style "normal", so I figure wxoo should be converted to it. Ah, thinks I, 2 or 3 hour task I can do before going to bed (forgetting that it's the leap-forward-day). 6 clock hours (5 actual) later I've only converted 1/5th of the ...

Sheesh, $117CDN total income for a year? (I know, I know, I was doing open-source all year, but still...)


Just finished sorting everything out for the 2002 and 2003 years. $117 total income in 2002 (all bank-account interest), with $40 spent on the PSF membership and $40 donated to charity. Net income of $37 dollars (CDN, so about $4US). Hardly seems worth filing, but I'll have to anyway. Of course, turns out I ...

Oh yes, that stuff... (In case anyone cares)


I know no-one really cares about how the internal project is going, but I did finally manage to get the front-page tree control to display the (now recorded) summary data. So far only one piece of it, but the data is now getting in there, so it's just a matter for tweaking what's ...

Inevitabilities... (Chores and taxes...)


Did a few hours after work on getting the bit-rot out of ConflictSolver last night... not a lot of progress, though it's now able to at least load the main screen. The zcollection code is still seriously messed up, as the CS code is now expecting the new (heavily refactored) API, while zcollection itself ...

Well, I suppose that's one way (Silly things that trip across my desktop...)


Apparently university girls are selling themselves on eBay as "e-girlfriends" for those men too "busy, lazy or shy" to actually connect with a woman in real life. Sort of the kiddie-pool of escort services I guess. Tres étrange! and somewhat sad.

wxPython is migrating rather fast (Looks like maintenance on the wx projects would be a good idea)


Just reading through the wxPython migration guide and change-log. I need to get cracking and update wxoo for the new apis & the changes. There's a lot of stuff that looks like it may break some of the hackier bits. Also thinking that I should see about creating and donating a multi-method mechanism to provide ...

Correspondence of yesterday (My own little news service...)


For those following "The Life of Mikey":
  • Emailed the beautiful one last night. She's busy with job and university applications.
  • Rosey got her first acceptance letter for teacher's college from Lakehead (way up North).
  • Alexei wrote, need to reply some time soon.
  • Developer is needing help getting ConflictSolver put together, I'm going ...

The next bug awaits... (Hierarchy properly created, but no record of group's values)


Some day real soon I'll be able to make the front-page tree control display the group data... sigh. For some reason the group-data recorder refuses to actually insert any data (though it will insert empty records). I'm suspecting a problem in the database definition (i.e. lack of a unique key) as the ...
