Little traction this afternoon (Bouncing around between tasks...)

I was fully intending to spend the evening on porting OpenGL-ctypes to Win32. However, I realised that the workstation doesn't have the Toolkit compiler set up, which always takes hours, so I thought I'd try wrapping some of the more advanced extensions (vertex shaders, pixel shaders, that kind of thing).

Of course, I don't have any extension-using code for those extensions, so I spent a few hours reading through various tutorials looking for BSD/MIT/public-domain licensed source code I could translate to Python... and by the time I was finished that I just didn't feel like coding any more.

However, I figured I would get a virtual machine set up for Win2K so that I could make the process of working on Win32 ports easier. Installed vmware, thinking it was a free package... oops, no. So here I am, 9pm, tired, no particular movement on any project all night and I'm just about ready to go to bed.

    VMWare Server is free and pretty cool to use, because it works in a client / server fashion, so that you don't need to have the client GUI running to have your virtualized servers run.<br />

    <br />
    It doesn't contains all the features of the Workstation edition, though, namely the very useful snapshot history (you only get to have one single snapshot at a time), but performance-wise, it's way, way beyond QEMU (I haven't tried bochs).<br />
