Further to back up nirvana...

Continuing to toy with rdiff-backup.  There's enough areas that you *don't* want to back up (or rather, don't need to, such as icon and font caches) that you wind up with some pretty hideous command-line operations if you go that route, but this post is about another need, namely the need to ...

rdiff-backup with source-control and mozilla-profile handling...

Can't sleep, so thought I might do some work getting a better backup system built for our machines.  I really like rdiff-backup so far, it's got the "rewind to any time" functionality I'd like, along with reasonable query features and fairly simple operation, so this:

rdiff-backup --exclude-if-present .svn --exclude-if-present .bzr --exclude-if-present CVS ...

Of Design release 1.0a1

As regular readers will know, I've been working (slowly) on a rewrite of my BIS Thesis in Design Epistemology.  The original thesis was huge, covering way more material than anyone should attempt to cover in one thesis, and as a result it was rather cursory in its coverage of most of the areas on ...

From where the short posts come...

Have been seeing weirdly trivial blog-post spam lately.  Someone will post a single-line comment that is entirely generic, no real content, just a bland "nice post" or "thanks for the article" where the user's URL is a link to what looks like a SEO page.

Turns out that there's a set of sites ...

Oh, OpenGL 3.2 in PyOpenGL, PyOpenGL in Python 3.x

Checked in the initial OpenGL 3.2 support, haven't done *any* checking on it yet.  So buyer beware on bzr trunk :) .  Really do need to get the pyglet-generator branch working some day.

Oh, also ran 2to3 across the package.  It finished (used to blow up on the larger files), so it may be possible ...

easy_install no longer working with SourceForge-hosted projects?

It seems like all of the projects I host on SourceForge are no longer easy-installable.  The only ones that can install are the ones that have been uploaded to PyPI, and then only the versions on PyPI install (i.e. a later version on SF doesn't install or prevent an earlier version from installing ...

Add context managers to PyOpenGL?

Playing a bit with Python context managers for PyOpenGL.  Considering adding them pervasively, likely with a configuration flag. (idea is from Florian's gletools)...

  • OpenGL.arrays.VBO -- make a context manager itself (this is already implemented)
  • OpenGL.GL.compileShader -- make the shader int returned a context manager (implemented)

Those two I consider non-controversial, as they ...

New tutorial(s) up...

Continuing to plow through writing tutorials.  There's now 10 GLSL code walk through style tutorials for OpenGLContext.  Next up should likely be texturing/samplers.  I'm going to have to start factoring out some of the common code, as large blocks are basically the same for each tutorial and they're making it somewhat ...
