Amy, Olive

[ #25206 ]

Woke up this morning and was surprised to see Amy on AIM. She told me she'd started working at the hospital on a 7-7 (1900-0700) shift, so she was exhausted and just about to go to bed. If we get to move back to Athens soon, I should go cook for her some weekend (or whenever she's off).

Olive b7 was released today. It didn't have the 2 big things I wanted it to have (OPML import, ATOM feed support), but so many little fixes and additions had piled up I just didn't want to sit on them anymore. Then the jerkholes at freshmeat decided to lop half of my "Changes" statement out of their release announcement, because apparently the other 100 or so bytes would have just been too much for their system to cope with.

Someone really needs to implement a non-sucky freshmeat. I know their (self-selected) task is a really cruddy one, but they've just gotten rather cruddy themselves in many ways (most notably their nebulous "non-trivial" requirement, which keeps a lot of useful but small software out of their listings but ensures a neverending stream of PHP image galleries and the like).

Finally pulling the diary2 code into a svn repo so I can set up a dev install on fornax and do some work on hit here and there. Nic wants comments first, so that's the major thing I'll work on, but I need to get prev/next in there (this can be stolen straight from my diary code) and bolt on RSS generation on publish (also very very simple).

Got into an interesting job-related email exchange involving Scheme today. More on that later.

  • Coincidentally, Freshmeat have just published my Sprog release announcement after a lengthy delay while they 'edited' the text (and changed the meaning of a few key phrases). Immediately before my announcement was one for a PHP image gallery :-)
