Togl is a PITA (Still segfaults on init)

Togl is still failing. I'm guessing it's something to do with the stubs code (I seem to recall someone mentioning that it was broken a number of months ago). Of course, I don't have the message around to refer to by now. I'm tempted (again) to just disable the silly thing and let someone who ...

Rote from Other Tongues

Do men in truth seduce
Women with such words
Ripped from other's mouths
By rote from other tongues
Will someday I seduce
Some gentle-leaning lady
Love someone unawares

Whether I Still Can

Watching a couple walk
Down Bathurst yesterday
I was struck by the years
Since last I practiced
Walking hand in arm

Whether I still can

Don't forget to reboot your Linux machines every few months (Software upgrades from weeks ago bite me...)

Managed to get the X server into a weird state that just refused to do anything, so I rebooted my workstation. And it could neither find the hardware clock nor start the X server. Apparently I have a new x-org (likely from that security problem a while ago) and the Nvidia driver didn't seem to ...

I'd forgotten just how frustrating the SWIG-PyOpenGL build process is (So long to compile that I get distracted with other projects in the meantime...)

I'm finally sitting down to do some maintenance for PyOpenGL-SWIG. So far I'm just working on integrating the two major patches for GLUT (the FreeGLUT include patch and the glutTimerFunc patch). I'm really missing the instantaneous change-test cycle of OpenGL-ctypes at this point.

Anyway, have the package building on Gentoo again, going to have to ...

Long week-tail (Too few hours in the days...)

Wednesday I was off on work-related stuff from 8am until almost 1am Thursday. Wound up working on creating a Cinemon screencast until 4:30am before I remembered I needed to be at work for 10am. After a long day on Thursday I just wound up crashing when I got home and waking up late for work ...

Routing is fun (Or my day in un-billables...)

Spent most of the day on a Cinemon support on-site call. The installation was only half-finished, and they didn't have anyone who understood routing or network architectures sufficiently to sort out the unfinished setup. They'd spent weeks trying to fix it (not solid weeks, just weeks of back and forth) with the network guy who ...
