Day sucked into the abyss of pair-debugging (Where did it go? It was just here a few minutes ago...)

Day was rather fragmented (again). Mostly due to calls from D'Arcy. Was getting weird failures in the "EFT" server (now the "Payment" server). Turned out to be caused by a socket not getting closed in the test cases. Only showed up on the production server. Only occurred when the tests were run in given order. ...

In a shameless attempt to boost ratings (Yet more pictures of beautiful women...)

Went to Lara and Melissa's party this evening. Was a mostly musical crowd, but very little real jamming occured. Did make me wish I'd learned an instrument back in school instead of just focussing on vocals... vocal improv takes a little bit more patience from the audience... and whistling doesn't quite cut it.

Afraid that ...

For the Eric3 users out there (Create an Eric3 project from your CVS working directory...)

I often find it extremely frustrating to have to re-check-out my working directories using Eric's GUI (especially since I normally already have them checked out and partially-edited). Maybe this is just a problem when you keep swapping environments, but anyway, it's an itch I felt the need to scratch.

The script takes a CVS working ...

What am I doing up so late (I asks meself I does...)

Just before I managed to get to sleep, I got annoyed with something in Eric. Basically, if you want to use a CVS project in Eric you have to check it out through Eric. That's annoying when you've already got everything checked out and you have to go through the rather awkward Eric checkout process. ...

OpenGLContext testing and finishing... (Little fixes here and there and a disturbing failure on Linux...)

Built PyOpenGL 2.0.2 from CVS; took quite a while as I forgot to clean out the old SWIG source before doing it. Result was completely non-functional. Once that was done no big deal.

Fixed a bug in PyOpenGL with handling of unsigned integers (was rejecting integers > 32-bit integer values as part of the default SWIG ...

Messaging systems aren't as fun as you might have imagined (Though if you were you a person inclined to imagine such things maybe they'd be a laugh a minute...)

Today seemed very fragmented. Don't know why. Much of the day was spent reviewing things trying to figure out why performance on the server tanked after yesterday's reboot. No luck there. It really shouldn't have been the CMTS OID rescanning. Also spent a while looking at what's required to move forward from a marketting standpoint. ...

Oh, about those silly slogs (Think its fixed now, will see...)

Think I finally killed the "rescan unresolved modems frequently" feature request. It wound up showing up a number of other bugs here and there and just made the whole process messy. Switching to Linux in the middle of it probably wasn't a great move on my part.

Speaking of which, I've apparently karked the video ...

About auto-programming (Genetics as programming isn't quite what it seems to be...)

I spent an hour or so today emailing Jelle regarding his project. He's using evolutionary techniques (or, rather, is intending to do so) for programming his experiment and that got me thinking. For those who aren't familiar with the idea, an evolutionary programming approach defines a feedback loop where a set of solutions are tested ...

Why isn't the mozsvg project a plugin? (Would seem like the right way to go, no?)

I've been testing my changes since switching back to Linux by using Firefox. That's fine, but there's no AMD64-compatible SVG plug-in that I'm aware of for Firefox. There's also no flag for building MozSVG into Firefox that I can find, so, it's off to Mozilla (the suite). Problem there is that it has started taking ...
