As of yesterday, I have survived to 31 years of age. That is all for now.

I just finished touching up that GDK backend for rendering toplevel windows to Cairo image surfaces I briefly presented at GUADEC. It now compiles with the latest GTK+ trunk, and it even has a page with instructions for how to check it out and build it. There are some examples too.
With time, I can hopefully get this to production quality levels.
At GUADEC 2008. Istanbul is a fun and interesting place, and the talks aren’t all that bad either. Not much time to write or code, though.
I’m finally back in Xalapa after more than three weeks on the road.
After the wildly successful GTK+ Berlin hackfest, I spent a day in the Hague with my good friends Andrea and Marcus, then headed for home. The flight was awful as usual, but mitigated by the fact that I was bringing back good memories and lots and lots of Belgian and Dutch candy.
The second Novell hack week is at an end, and I’ve set up a public Trac instance for Sterling. Development will go on there. I’ll devote some ITO (“innovation time off”) to it next time I get a chance.
Four days down. How time flies when you’re having fun. I must admit that Sterling is barely past the point where it creates a panel applet that does nothing – but on the other hand, I’ve absorbed a bit of how-to on C# and Mono tools. It’s rather pleasant so far.
Apart from the panel applet business, I’ve gotten the build framework for GConf schemas, gettext, icons and UI files out of the way, so I think it’s fair to say it’s getting ready to administer kicks to the proverbial hindside. I’ll have a public Git repo up sometime tomorrow.
Hey, it’s a start.
Federico and Tambet came and hacked in addition to Mike and me. Got some stuff done, but not as much as I’d have liked to. The arrachera I had for lunch sort of knocked me out.
I’d better get some sleep now. More tomorrow.
