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 ...
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 ...
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 ...!-->!-->
Tonight was going to be an OpenGL-ctypes hacking evening, but Rose's houseguests wanted to take us out for dinner... I can hardly say no to free Persian food, now can I?
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 ...
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'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 ...
I neglected to test the comment-posting feature on the blog. Oops, it's broken and I don't seem to have access to the error logs any more, so can't debug why it's failing. Sorry about that.
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 ...
Tim transferred the blog here to Vex's new Zope server. Seems much faster than the old server. Yay Tim.
