Need a decent unit-testing framework for OpenGL (Unit tests are good things...)

I've just moved the (rather small set of) tests in OpenGL-ctypes into a unittest test case. Discovered in doing that that the nurbs and evaluator code is working on the laptop (just doesn't show up in the real-world tests, suggesting that there's a problem in the setup there). Reinforces the idea that it's the amd64 ...

Magic of unit tests (Pinning down evaluator failure)

Sat down to write a test for the evaluator code. I'd gotten it to the point where it didn't crash the program a while ago, but it was not showing up in the tests/demos. Whittled down one of the tests into a simple unittest, getting rid of textures, lighting, etceteras, but couldn't come up with ...

Okay, I'm really excited about PyCon now (List of accepted talks...)

Just read through the list of accepted talks, beginning to think that I may wind up with a lot of conflicts. Normally I don't go to the talks at a conference (I hang out chatting in the halls), but there's quite a few I need to go to this time [2, 32, (51), 55, ...

Pulling the restructured code together (Refactoring core assumptions...)

Focusing on real work these days. Spent most of yesterday on the restructuring of the VoIP billing system. Got all save two of the test cases for discounts working, they both exercise the same missing feature (date-matching).

I've been procrastinating all morning in the hope that it will just go away :) . Guess I ...

What am I missing? (Things to look into on Saturday)

I'm still seeing failures in OpenGL-ctypes in the nurbs and evaluator calls. I've traced through them, compared them to C versions of the code and have basically run out of reasons for it to fail. What I'm left with is the possibility that I've started tickling a ctypes-on-amd64 error or that I'm doing something monumentally ...

Finally get workstation up to date (DLL hell resolved)

My workstation has been stuck in a quasi-working state for a long time now (a month?). Basically I updated to Python 2.5, then tried to update to Eric4 since Eric3's dependencies wouldn't build on Python 2.5. The Eric4 thing never worked, so I removed it. A little later when KDE 3.5.5 was marked stable on ...
