We're pretty much packed up, just have to drop the three computers in the luggage, pack up the MP3 players, check the cameras and otherwise assemble the panoply of gadgets that seem to have attached themselves to the trip. Turns out that travelling with someone else means that you take 4x as much luggage as ...
We spent the whole day on billing-system stuff, nothing huge, just going through and seeing which tickets we can get done before we head off to Italy. Bit of project management too, grooming the ticket-tracker to find the old, already-finished tickets, marking tickets waiting that are blocked, that kind of thing.
Tomorrow will be more ...!-->!-->
Spent the whole day working on the code for the Laptop. Some time on sketching the network-setup UI Myles and I were discussing as well. Biggest problem is that such a project will take months and we've only got about 3 months until we need to think about shipping. That said, I really wish I ...
Just had OpenOffice crash when I went to open the "File" menu to save the document I'd just finished. The computer was loaded, but not horrifically so, but once that menu started the whole machine just stopped responding (even to ssh logins)... other than a cursor, no signs of life.
This is now the second ...!-->!-->
Amanda, Soni, Myles and I did a documentation sprint today. We were adding docstrings to the various service modules. Still some of that still-to-land tomorrow. Anyway, very tired now, worked more than 10 straight hours myself. Seneca also did some work toward her idea of a Turtle "robot" built out of cheap motors using the ...
Reasonably good turn out at the OLPC Developer's meetup. I'd been hoping to get the whole group to sit down and work on documenting Sugar. However, most of the people at the meeting hadn't really begun working on the environment, and a number hadn't really been through any informational session... we should have spent some ...
Soni and I were just too tired to go back to work after lunch today. Wound up sleeping for 3 hours until just before Simon and Fan dropped in. Simon's going to try to drop into the Toronto OLPC Developer's group at Linux Caffe tomorrow (Thursday) night (7pm).
Since they left we've been head-down-and-working. A ...!-->!-->
Taking the TTC home today I had to get out a few blocks away. There was an accident on Bathurst. Looked like a head-on collision at very high speed. The car was completely totaled, the van had jumped way over into the courtyard of a nearby building.
Whoever had been in the cars was long ...!-->!-->
PyGTA this evening is getting a presentation from Myles Braithwaite :) . He's going to be showing us the IronPython implementation for use in ASP.NET applications.
While Python is normally associated with the Free and Open Source communities, contractors and developers using it often need to work on Microsoft's development platforms. IronPython is a Python ...!-->!-->
Nice visit with my parents this afternoon. Rosey had them bring up the summer tires for her car... even though there's the possibility of snow tomorrow. We're going to stay at the home office tomorrow to do training on the billing system. Rest of the day will be regular work on it. We've got 7 ...
