Five and a half hours today restructuring a couple of web pages. These are basically huge (1000+ line) scripts with a handful of individual "functions", save that they aren't coded as actual functions, they're just conditional branches scattered throughout the script.
All the code's generated with print statements and embedded HTML strings (with all tags ...!-->!-->
Today I finally tackled one of the longstanding todos in the VoIP project, namely the point of interface between ISP account activation and VoIP account activation. Since the VoIP system is written to be largely independent of the ISP billing system there's a certain "energy barrier" whenever there's something needing to be done in the ...
I continued working on OpenGL-ctypes for a few hours yesterday (until I fell asleep), just sitting down and writing test-cases for those extensions I have and using them to see if the extension modules are working. There's generally some work to do for every module that has a function using a pointer, out parameter, glGet* ...
I've just checked the auto-generated extensions for OpenGL-ctypes into the Sourceforge CVS repository. The autogeneration is still quite crude, so expect any extension with glGet-like, pointer or image-based functionality to fail. I've also reworked the glget module to use the wrapper system, which makes it a much simpler module (and makes the patterns easier to ...
Nousha's party was well attended and lively. Rose brought along someone she'd met (Meagan), who is a U of T student studying Buddhism. We spent 3 or 4 hours discussing Kant, Hume and Freud as well as strategies and approaches to academic excellence.
Shane is reviewing and planning working on OpenGL-ctypes. I'm planning on taking ...!-->!-->
I guess the number one cool thing is that grams is fine. There's little pain from the surgery and she was in good spirits. The hospital has been dramatically remodelled since the last time I was there (to be checked for carpel tunnel syndrome years ago). Very pleasant foyer area. I wonder if anyone has ...
Boyle and Lavin are attempting to address a fairly simple question, regarding whether all desires must wear the “guise of the good”:
Can a rational being desire that which it sees as “bad”?
Or, if you prefer:
Can we want something without seeing it as “good”?
Now, Boyle and Lavin note that until recently, the ...
I need to rethink how I'm presenting the perception section. There's just so much material to cover and it's all interrelated. I'm thinking I'll spend the evening (post grams-visit and lectures) working out an outline for it.
I was doing quick mock-ups of the new product design last night. Nothing fancy, just throwing some text on a piece of paper to give investors an idea of that in which they'd be investing. But now my fingers... well, more my mind, actually... is itching to design something substantial.
What I should do, of ...!-->!-->
Was talking to <elided> this evening (no, I didn't call, she did), and it reminded me that I really need to get some people with whom to discuss design theory. There's a couple of philosophy lectures tomorrow afternoon that I think I'll drop into. Maybe there will be someone interested there.
Going to visit grams ...!-->!-->
