Or, maybe that’s just my drive to work on enlightenment stuff. I’ve been hit by a bit of a coding funk in relation to enlightenment lately. Just don’t have any drive to work on code or deal with people. Doesn’t seem worth it at the moment. Always seems like the negative response out-weights the positive.
I’ve been doing a bit of fiddling with Rails again, although I’ve run into a strange bug where using sqlite3 is giving my row an id of 1 while rails is giving it an id of 0 so when I save an image using that id it’s numbered wrong. Hopefully it’s just a sqlite3 thing and if I switch to MySQL it’ll work itself out.
I bought Stacy a new MacBook and inherited her powerbook. She likes the smaller size and the keyboard on the macbook a lot better. I’m loving the 15” powerbook. It’s quickly becoming my machine of choice. Using Textmate and quick silver make programming a breeze. I’m just learning Textmate so I know I’m still doing a lot of stuff the dumb way, but event still, it’s swanky.
In a related operating system based note, Solaris 10 6/06 was released to day so I can’t wait to get my sweaty hands on that one and stick it on the work laptop. Tho, I have to wait until at least Thursday as I have to do some presentations off of it in the interm, but, mmmmmm, zfs, yum
Other then that, I’ve been doing some traveling for work, playing World of Warcraft and reading. My readings been going in cycles lately. I’ll pick up a book and either get sucked in or get stuck. If I get stuck I sit with that book for a month or so without reading a page until I drop it for another one. (Or, if I’m lucky I’ll drop it right away and switch to a new one.) Maybe I’ll use some of my e-free time to catch up on reading. (Heh, probably I’ll just play Warcraft). But then, I’m getting to about the point where I get tired of Warcraft as well. I have yet to get a character over 30, my current high being this run to 28. I’m starting to get tried of the ‘kill 2million monsters to get 8 pieces of horn’ type quests where you just kill the same shit again, and again, and again, and again. We’ll see how long it lasts.
Stacy’s put up the next piece of ‘Night in the Sun’ over at perplexity.org which has served as a good diversion. Good reading, I can’t wait for the next chapter. Shaping up to be a good story.
Anyway, that’s enough for now, I may post some stuff on the books I’ve read recently (or am currently reading) we’ll see how it all goes. (Or, I may end up moving this blog if I ever get the new everburning finished.)
