Hey hey hey! [Apr. 22nd, 2007|06:22 pm]

Busy busy busy, what else is new right? Well a few weeks ago we finally went public with the Gaim->Pidgin stuff. It's so relaxing to be finally rid of that AOL garbage.

Because of the name change, we did most of our updates to Guifications2.x and the plugin pack in private in our new monotone setup. So there wasn't a whole lot to do after the announcement. Although I'm still cleaning up parts of the build system for the plugin pack. One of those cleanups are basic stats about the build of the plugin pack. Namely, how many plugins there are, how many are incomplete, how many build by default, and how many for each ui.

For Guifications2, I'm still looking for someone to make us a new default theme. Although I've been considering having people vote on the theme pack, whenever we get back to it, for one to become the new default.

On the Guifications3 front, I've slowly been making progress like always. Last weekend I gave John Bailey (rekkanoryo10000) a basic online tutorial about the GType system and how it's used in GF3.

On the Pidgin front, I'm mentoring for SoC again. My student this year is Eoin Coffey who is working on the mono loader. Anyone who knows the history of the mono loader knows how ironic this all is. Eoin applied for the mono loader in SoC 2005. Unfortunately another application was chosen instead. By the end of SoC 2005, the student that was chosen didn't have any work done, and Eoin offered up his preliminary work on the loader to be included into Gaim at the time. I jumped into get it into cvs (at the time), and we've both slowly been working on it. But now, this year, he gets to finish what he started two years ago, awesome! Right now most of the developements on the mono loader can be tracked on the Pidgin Developers wiki at http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/MonoLoader.

I also recently picked up a Tux Droid. I'm some what disappointed with the current way of communicating with the droid, and have started rewriting the daemon as a D-Bus app. Unfortunately, I need to talk to the wireless dongle through raw USB, which means I get to learn libusb. Needless to say this is going to be an interesting project.

I think that about brings everyone up to speed on the state of things since my last post.

I picked up brain age for nintendo ds on tuesday. When i got it, without any of the "daily training" i scored a brain age of 80. The best brain age you can have is 20. So I followed the training and did a bit more than was required because a score of 80 is just not acceptable to me. So I took the test again on wednesday and scored a 60. Still not great, but that's a hell of a improvement. Last night I was bored so I was just doing the calculation training trying to get faster and faster. Today, I take the test, and scored a 34, thats right 26 "years" in a day. Obviously my brain was out of shape, and who knows, maybe I'll be at 20 by the end of the weekend :)

I've been completely swamped with school lately, so guifications3 dev time has been severely lacking. But tonight I threw together a trac plugin to pull in data from planet. It needs a bit of polishing yet but it works. Also cleaned up a bunch of other stuff on the site. Anyways, more time for development when I graduate in June. :)

Well I finally got images working correctly over D-Bus as byte arrays. Quite a bit of it was brain farts on my part. But here have a look at the fruits of my labor



With this working, I should HOPEFULLY have this thing working by the end of the month. But again, thats another date I'm setting and I missed the last one too. But atleast I'm making progress.

I had been planning for a very long time to open a cafepress store for guifications when I had finally settled on a logo. Well today I finally settled on that logo. You can find the store at www.cafepress.com/Guifications.

Guifications 3 Updates... [Jan. 9th, 2006|04:30 am]

[music |Tool - Schism]

A little over a week ago I decided that doxygen wasn't going to work for the documentation for guifications3. So after this past week's worth of work, I have everything except gflib-xmlrpc moved over to gtk-doc. I'm not too worried about gflib-xmlrpc since it doesn't do much of anything right now, and I don't even think it builds anymore.

Tonight I moved gflib-module to gtk-doc, and I'm really starting to question my judgement in moving it to a separate library in it's own source tree. Right now I think I'm going to move it into gflib's tree and have it built it's own library there depending on a configure argument. I can still keep all library specific stuff, .pc file, docs, etc, so it shouldn't be much of a problem. Plus it just seems better since it's basic functionality, and should have a more direct tie into gflib.

Aside from the documentation front, I'm getting *REALLY* close to finally getting GfFeed's implemented in D-Bus. I'm aiming to have all of the GfFeed API implemented on D-Bus by this weekend, minus the actual event emitting. Although, this will require finishing implementation of the GfFeedPool API on D-Bus, but that shouldn't take too long.

I'm still optimistic about being usable by the end of this month, but only time will tell.

[music |Against Me! - The Politics of Starving]

Well I start quarter 7 of 8 on my way to my associates degree today. I actually don't have class on campus until Tuesday. This quarter I have Calculus and Capstone on campus, and Group Dynamics online. I'm actually quite stoked about having Calculus. I haven't had a high level math class in over 5 years, so I'm looking forward to geeking out there. The Capstone class is actually two quarters long. Basically the entire class, which right now is either 4 or 5 people, work on a big project, usually real world. This is going to be an interesting class, and unfortunately guess who is going to end up writing the majority of it... Anyways, Group Dynamics is going to suck major ass. In every online class I've had, whenever they assign groups, everyone in my group never shows up. So yeah this is going to be interesting. All in all with my classes coming to an end and becoming harder don't expect to see a whole lot of code coming from me any time soon :).

Planet Guifications [Oct. 13th, 2005|02:10 am]

Well John (rekkanoryo10000) noticed last night that his name wasn't showing up and neither was his feed. It turns out that the planet software junks an entire feed if it has really old entries. He had entries dating back to 2003, so I just commented out the code in planetlib.py. I'm still kind of freaked out that """ in python is the same as /* in C. That just seems excessive. Speaking of retarded comments, why is it that these uber high level languages use ' and " as comment characters? Can anyone explain this to me? I mean is it really that difficult to hit // (no modifiers) than ' or " (which has a modifier...)</rant>
