Sometimes you just need to crash (Sleep is good...)

Came home early from Linux Caffe this afternoon to walk Caillou. Turns out Rose was coming home anyway to do it, but oh well. I took him out and then just crashed for the rest of the evening (until around 9:45, when he needed another walk). I would consider doing more work tonight, but I ...

StarPy patches integrated into CVS (Maybe 20 lines of changes...)

Taking the lunch-hour here to work on getting the StarPy patches integrated. The changes are fairly minor in terms of new functionality, a few bug fixes and adding a few (new) parameters to AMI originate. I haven't investigated, but I gather the "variables" patch is the exposure of the new api for originate that was ...

Tiniest little bit of StarPy hacking (Pitifully small, really...)

Discovered a little while ago that there were 7 unread messages about StarPy that got sorted into the Thunderbird folder and never read. Urgh. 4 patches, a bug report and an offer to work on the system Duh!

So yesterday I set up the laptop to have Asterisk, StarPy, and StarMail so that I can ...

GLSL demo ported into OpenGL-ctypes (Cartoon shading is fun!)

I just checked in the the (minor) enhancements to allow for compiling and running GLSL shaders with OpenGL-ctypes (based on the PyGame wiki page). This is by no means a complete wrapping, it's just the features that the demo uses wrapped up so that they have "pythonic" interfaces and match the C definitions (e.g. allowing ...

I need to work on my rock-climbing technique (Way too much stress on my fingers/forearms)

Had a fun time at rock (wall) climbing this evening. It was my first time. I didn't do spectacularly well; didn't make it all the way up even one 5.6 level run despite spending 30 or 40 minutes halfway up the one run trying to get past the point that seemed to require using one's ...

I'll just get one or two things done before I head down (Dangerous thoughts in the morning...)

I've switched to using the new cell phone as my alarm clock. It's with me, has a battery, and doesn't risk having the computer blast Rose out of bed in the morning if I'm not there to catch it. It worked fine, I woke up at 08:00, crossed the room, opened it up, pressed a ...

BarCamp this weekend ("Hacking perception, the core perceptual cycle")

Been trying to think of what would be the most interesting thing to present to a group of people with wide-ranging interests. I've considered all the technical stuff, but really, yawn. Instead I'm thinking of offering a short talk on human perception and cognition from a hacker's perspective; how do you approach an understanding ...
