I was wondering why my dad hadn't responded to an email I sent him a week or two ago. Oops, it's sitting in my junk-mail folder. That's kind of annoying, as at the moment Thunderbird is letting seven or eight spams through every hour, yet its marking messages from people in my contacts as spam. ...
Just added a new developer to the PyOpenGL project. Charles is interested primarily in adding some of the newer extensions (i.e. ones I don't even have on my years-old graphics cards). Welcome Charles.
Dropped off the old monitor and UPS at the Environment Day. I managed to forget that it was today (was just about to head out to do the week's shopping, which would have meant I'd miss it), only the UPS sitting in the doorway as I was about to head out served as a reminder. ...
Well, the second day of work on the VOIP platform front end has now drawn to a close. The first day was spent familiarising myself with the platform and writing test scripts to make sure that the platform really does work the way it's advertised. A few bugs have shown up here and there, but ...
Ah, so this is age

In the deadness of their lives
In a crowded square
Hate fills the air

The function is failing when GLUT tries to copy one of the strings in the argv array. Unfortunately, I can't see what that array is (easily), as the ctypes stuff has ...
I've been getting annoyed with twisted.trial all day, as I look at test results declaring that there's a problem in test case <lambda>. So I decided (unable to just sit about) that I'd update to the lastest Twisted SVN root and produce a fix for it.
Apparently someone else was annoyed by the effect and ...!-->!-->
One of the things that kinda freaks me out is just how huge a feature set we're packing into this product. The one I built today is available from one of our competitors as a stand-alone tool that costs as much as our entire product. Sure, it'll take a few more days of work to ...
She makes cold marble soft with hardened steel
Long days in practiced craft of violent action
Run a hand across her downy flank
Try to feel the rain of tiny blows
That caught this Roman maiden in the stone
