Go forward in time to May 2005.
I took the whole list of GtkFileChooser bugs and classified it by category. Over the next few days I'll be reviewing each bug to see if there are unapplied patches, interesting comments, or just things that can be fixed easily. Then I'll go for the most important bugs.
If you find a patch in one of these bugs and the patch works for you, please mail me. This will make the patch review process much easier.
Bad GUI behavior:
Niceties that we don't have:
Filename entry, location dialog, and interactive search ("typeahead"):
Fixed but frequently reported (possibly from 2.4.x users):
Please use the patches in the SRPMS here; they fix many of these issues after the last 2.1.14 tarball was released: GTK+ 2.4.14 SRPMS for Novell Linux Desktop 9
Today is Oralia's birthday, and I love her.
What I don't love is not being able to find good cake in Xalapa.
The other day we went to Parque Juárez, where they are showing some of Sebastián's sculptures.
Last weekend we went to the fisherman's town of Alvarado, about 70 Km away from Veracruz.
What a nice surprise! Track 2 in Dead Can Dance's Aion is based on the same 14th-century music as track 13 in John Williams's The Guitarist. DCD's is called Saltarello; JW's is the second movement, Double dance, of his Aeolian Suite for Guitar. This is not to be confused with the other Saltarello dance, which is the basis for track 11 in JW's album.
I just love it when the same music appears by chance in two completely different versions.
Reasons why I don't like traveling without my wife:
I get cold at night if we can't both curl up in bed.
There's no cooking, and there's nothing like cooking together.
Exploring the city in which I travel is far from exciting if I'm not with Oralia.
She's not there to comfort me when my stomach gets upset, like it was for the past few days.
I can't relax at night by brushing her hair.
Every couple has their in-jokes; being without your couple means there are no in-jokes to share.
Can't share moments in the park.
I'm looking forward to flying back to Mexico tomorrow.
We went to Mexico City over the Easter holidays, and did a little shopping for books. Oralia found a great cookbook, and we've been making a few of the recipes. Yesterday we made broiled eggplant parcels filled with tomato, mozzarella, and basil leaves.
First you slice the eggplant and boil it for a few minutes until it is soft. Then you lay two of them in a cross, and in the middle you put a symmetric stack of tomato, basil, mozzarella, basil, and tomato. Sprinkle salt and pepper between the layers. Then, you wrap them up and curse to high heaven when a recalcitrant slice of eggplant refuses to stay put.
You cook a sauce with tomatoes, onions, garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. We added a little chipotle for spiciness. Then, you brush the closed parcels with olive oil and broil them for a bit. You serve them with the sauce poured over the parcels, and with a little more basil for decoration.
For a starter, Oralia made a cream of broccoli and spinach. She has been perfecting her creams of vegetables: the outcome of this particular one led me to tell her that there's nothing left to perfect in that regard, but she insists that they could still be better.
Go backward in time to March 2005.Federico Mena-Quintero <email@example.com> Fri 2005/Apr/01 09:15:59 CST
