I don’t have much to say today, but as a hobbyist programmer, I’m always looking for fun things to write. I think one of them will be to replicate how Bloglines works. It should be comletely doable in PHP, and it will give me a great excuse to learn how to do object programming in PHP.
Well, Fedora2 was released, and I sucked all the files from the ISOs into my kickstart server. Overall, piece of cake to get all my binaries over- some of the nice things was that Exim is now in Fedora 2, so I don’t have to do anything there. The only thing that sucks is that the file /usr/share/system-config-soundcard/system-config-soundcard has to be run from an X session- this is bullshit as I would like to be able to have the soundcard automagically detected in my finish scrips after kickstarting the box. Grr. Why can’t they do a “system-config-soundcard –try” or something, and it will try to use the defaults that it finds, and go from there, then, if there are problems, use the GUI for additional assistance.
Geeklog is no more. It was pretty nice, but it was more of a portal than a blog app, so now I’m using Nucleus. Seems nice so far, but it does have a funky interface. Who knows- maybe this will get me to start writing in it again. hehe.
Earlier today, I didn’t feel like doing crap. I managed to get the lawn mowed as I haven’t done that in like 2 weeks, so that is good. I had some fillet mignon in the freezer that I needed to cook up, so I grilled both- one with bleu cheese on it, and the other with a bit of salt and garlic powder. I figure I’ll save the garlic+salt one for work on Monday. Who knows, I may crave Pho on monday, and eat the fillet tomorrow.
After what I think is two years, I finally have use of the sliding door in the family room- it was disabled to act as a make-shift cat door, but I was getting tired of looking at it, so I took the plunge today and cut a 3“x8” hole in the wall next to the garage door (between house and garage), and cut the same size hole for the garage side door. The cats aren’t too happy about the change, but I’m tired of walking through the master bedroom if I want to grill anything! Now, I need to clean up the holes so it looks professional, and that’ll be one project that I’ve been putting off for a while that will be done.
One other thing that sucks, I was bored so I figured I would hit the gym. I got there at about 8:30pm to do my cardio, but after doing the stair mill for 30mins, I found out that they closed at 9:00! Son of a… I guess I can go tomorrow.
