I heart contributors

Have been having a great couple of weeks for contributors.  Frank has been doing far more work on SquareMap (the visualization component used in RunSnakeRun) than I have, and Godson is looking at the Asterisk 1.6 extensions for StarPy.  It really does make me feel better about projects when they move forward without waiting ...

A few UI tweaks for RunSnakeRun

Quiet weekend, mostly out with friends and family, but did a bit of work on RunSnakeRun in the margins.  Got the toolbar finished, updated the documentation, got the "up" button working, cleaned up text strings so they are consistent throughout the UI (e.g. calling the "File View" the "File View" everywhere).  It's not ...

Stealing time on the subway

Stole a few minutes to work on RunSnakeRun on the subway home from Linux Caffe this afternoon.  Normally I just keep working on whatever I was working on when I leave the caffe, but this project is a CGI system and I don't have the server locally... so instead of working on paying work ...

Programming CouchDB with Python at PyGTA

Myles will be presenting the CouchDB document-oriented database system, and how to use it from Python at PyGTA on Tuesday at Linux Caffe.  First bit is going to be a review/overview of his LUG presentation, then it's to the meaty programming stuff that we can sink our teeth into.

Open Source Time

I'm not getting anywhere near enough time put into the various Open Source projects I want to work on, let alone time to work on my thesis.  I probably need a few solid weeks just to work on OS, and a few solid years to work on the thesis stuff.  A few weeks might ...

But I just need 1 little function...

I'm working on a side project at the moment, just a clean-up for an old customer who was acquired and needs to be migrated off our old systems and onto their parent company's systems.  To do that, we need to make a single, simple calculation.  About half of the time so far in ...

glHistogram and ARB imaging

The docs for glHistogram clearly say that if the GL_ARB_imaging extension is not supported then glHistogram is not present... except it appears to be present (and even accepts calls), but if I pass GL_HISTOGRAM to glEnable( ) I get an invalid enumerant error.

I'm pretty sure this card *should* support the whole of the imaging ...

Hoping to make Saturday a PyOpenGL day

If all goes as planned, Saturday should be a PyOpenGL hacking day.  Hopefully get 4-5 hours of solid work in, maybe enough to stabilize the OpenGL_accelerate module and try to get a 3.0.0 release candidate out the door.  There's still a problem with the crashing of the list/tuple handler, and there ...

Neat little feature added to RunSnakeRun

Just roughed in a neat-ish little feature for RunSnakeRun.  Basically it's a hierarchic view of your profile data where the hierarchy is directories/files/functions rather than function-call-record based.  It uses only the "localtime" values from the raw records so that you can see the total time spent in a given package, sub-package, module ...
