“I just love that gasoline smell!”
Wait, no I don’t.
I finally got it working, but there’s still that annoying font bug. It sync’s with my Palms. I don’t really like the fact that it requires I use gnome-pilot to get my data. I don’t like running that daemon. I have to get a conduit in pilot-link for this.
Starting the daemon, sync’ing my data, and killing the daemon is not a model I want to continue to use. Still needs proper category support in the Contact records and a few other tweaks. Not quite production ready yet.
Things appear to be stabilizing. I just wish I was.
That Work Thing
“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
Work continues to be interesting. Unfortunately, there’s some internal projects I can’t elaborate on here. It’s rapidly become a great test of my mental strength and tolerance.
“The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.”
I found a bug in pilot-addresses, and some other redesign problems. The good news is that it appears that there are still several people successfully running 0.9.5 under OS/2. Small problems, but it works. Another “When I Get Time™” fix.
It seems that my internal Linuxcare email diary from PalmSource 2000 made it’s way into the hands of PalmPower Magazine, unaltered. How it got there, I don’t know, but now they’re asking me to print it in their magazine.
Let me be clear: “If you print that material without my permission, you put your entire company in a very ugly legal liability situation.”
AvantGo is still at it on my server. This time they’re trying to subvert my $HTTP_REFERER tricks. They don’t realize what I’ve got running on that box. I just love seeing this stuff. A small reminder guys, I stay on top of my logs, and now so do they.
- Have to work on my CVS For Secure Development talk.
- BBC Slides for LinuxWorld in New York.
- OLS Paper
- pilot-link fix, OS/2 builds, Autoconfiscation
- Capture all of my tweaks in the IBM Thinkpad HOWTO
- Finish the Secure Wavelan HOWTO
- Complete work on the Palm PPP HOWTO
- Begin the Palm, Linux HOWTO. The old one needs a serious update. Makes sense to do a complete rewrite from the ground up.
logic: well put:
“Christmas: Was there a class I missed out on in grade school that failed to prepare me for the efficient and thoughtful acquisition of gifts for significant others during holiday seasons?”
Take a breath, step back, relax.
I need to get back into writing. I’ve got so much work I need to capture on paper (electronically) and distribute to the community.
