Go forward in time to Dec 2000.
Huge lunch with Joakim at the Argentinian restaurant just across the street from his place. We discussed lots of ideas for our services. We then went back to his place and were rather unproductive for the rest of the day; digestion took away too much blood from our brains.
So, it turns out that my Visor *did* have memory problems. I installed the appropriate patch and it seems to be working fine again. I want to play with Evolution's palm syncing stuff.
Built the new pilot-link and the new gnome-pilot. The fact that gnome-pilot requires gob bites my balls.
Fixed a few memory leaks in the Wombat. The calendar part is clean again. Fixed several leaks in the shell. ETable and the Bonobo UI code are still leaky; will investigate more carefully as memprof is being stupid with respect to stack traces.
Lay in bed for most of the day. Having a big cold sucks.
Started adding thumbnails of the book covers to my books page.
I feel like a massive cold is about to take over my body.
Dinner and coffee with Luis Javier and Carlos in Coyoacán.
Woke up late-ish. Was in the GNOME board of directors phone meeting. Made some really good coffee in the morning which put me in a good mood.
Fixed an important event-handling bug in ETable, sent the patch off for review; filed a couple of other bug reports on ETable.
Removed plenty of crufty old preferences code from the Evolution calendar. This baby is getting cleaner and cleaner every day. Also made some prettier icons for the task list.
I got spam for that Dianetics bullshit.
Things like this make you think humanity just deserves extinction.
Comdex is over since yesterday. Too big, too loud, too clueless an audience.
Vegas, baby. All the money in the world and no taste to be seen anywhere.
I should write a summary of Comdex/Vegas after I get some sleep.
Flight to Las Vegas for Comdex. My first flight was to Dallas, on a ridiculously small plane. The flight was packed. On the plus side, I got to see an incredibly beautiful sunset a few minutes before we arrived to Dallas. The flight to Las Vegas was on a big 767 that was very empty, so it was nice to be able to hijack a row of seats and stretch.
The past four days have been incredibly cloud-less, clear, sunny, and nice. You can see the whole city and the volcanos in the distance.
Went to Luis's house for his birthday party yesterday. Had a good time.
Went to the Facultad de Ciencias to see what's up with the next semester. It starts until January and they still don't know when one can enroll. Sigh.
In any case, it was nice to see my old friends from school. It is still in a sad state due to the fucking morons from the student strike, though. People are depressed and disenchanted with the unwillingness of the University authorities to do anything.
Lunch at my grandmother's, as is usual on Saturdays.
Went with Paco and Gina to the OFUNAM concert, which was awesome: they played Schumann's piano concerto with some Brazilian dude as soloist with an incredible technique, and then Mahler's 1st symphony.
For some reason I was fully awake at 6:30. I managed to find my old sports center card and decided to give it a shot. It still worked, so I could go running and swimming for a while. Swimming felt *good*.
Some CD shopping action ensued.
Moved some signals around in the EDateEdit widget to make the event editor code easier to write.
