i have things to write about...
...they're just all sitting in my "posts.txt" text file that I keep on my desktop, which is essentially a stickynote to myself. Been busy around here, what with A Really Important Application we have to build (and a book to finish writing, which is completely unrelated to the Really Important Application). Yesterday I spent a significant portion of my day watching things compile and build. I don't know how many of my dear readers have ever spent a day compiling and building things (probably just one of you
) but it looks
like the green-dripping-letters-on-black screen from The Matrix
except that the letters are white on black, run horizontally, and are actual letters and words that you can read and understand.
Ok, so it's not anything like The Matrix
. But it is very tedious because there are dependencies involved and libraries have to be linked and available to other programs and some things just fail for no good reason and you have to track down certain files and make one itty-bitty change to it and recompile, re-make, and hope for the best...times several applications...on an operating system that is your fourth or fifth favorite, not your first, second, or third (but at least isn't M$).
Sorry, tangent. I plan to tackle my list of posts-to-write later today, after I get back from my friends' boy's soccer scrimmage. Priorities!
