The tessellation code was broken because the vector passed to the vertex callback was being declared as a void_p instead of a c_double * 3 . Not working yet, as I have to figure out a way to have the callbacks use the preferred array data-type for converting the argument. Linux Caffe, however, is closing ...
Days when I'm just sitting down and coding straight, instead of bouncing between multiple tasks produce far more final product and get more billable hours in (6.5 today). It also helps when I'm at Linux Caffe, so there's nothing to do but work.
My workstation at home is upgrading itself to xorg-7.0 (modular), or rather, ...!-->!-->
The difference between Rose's little 17" CRT and the 20" LCD is... striking. Heck, even compared to the old, failing 21" CRT (which was really good in its time) it's a joy. Colours have good range. Quality is good enough that the PVR output actually looks pretty bad (can see the compression artefacts); basically I ...
The first two cheques arrived today, representing the first 3 invoices sent out. That means I really need to get a business account set up for the corporation tomorrow. I also need to set up something like an ING Savings account to hold the surplus where some (minimal) interest will compound over the year. Lastly, ...
Considering bringing along the laptop to try to get some OpenGL-ctypes work done during the UU meeting. Doesn't really seem likely that I'll get anything useful done, and carrying it all night is a pain... still, I suppose on the off chance I should do it anyway.
After being cursed one evening (not by me, I was hoping to get another 6 months out of it) my monitor refused to turn on the next morning. It was a nice $1600 Sony G500, now quite old, and beginning to fail in multiple ways (and, honestly, becoming quite hard on the eyes). Anyway, need ...
Apparently the sunburn just clobbered me. Slept most of yesterday and today instead of getting work done on OpenGL-ctypes. Have another hour and 10 minutes just to meet today's working target. Sigh.
Anyway, in the intersticies of the days I cleared out my backlog of Python-list emails (3000+, though I probably only read 100 or ...!-->!-->
Went out to Woodbine beaches on Saturday. Spent the whole afternoon out in the sun and wound up lobster-red across my whole front (including my feet) and back. Walked down to Sacha's barbecue when we got home. The jeans I wore down rubbed the sunburn into a nasty glowing red patch.
Also went to Sacha's ...!-->!-->
Having a very productive day down at Linux Caffe. Simon, Simon and now Dan are all here working at the same table. Some Cinemon work to fix a bug, then almost the whole afternoon on invoice generation issues for the legacy billing system. I'm going to take some time now to work on the next-generation ...
No my dear Mrs. Cratchett
I cannot stay to share your meal
Though it would warm my heart
To see you at last dine as you deserve
For though you might love me tonight
You could only love the man that I've become
You rightly cursed the man I was
While those people waiting there ...!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->
