  • Long discussion with Chee Hong about version control, and the mess that is Panton's design and code organization. Curiously, he's quite eager to learn, but I can't vouch for the rest of the company. May have to write proposal and jump through hoops to convince them to properly version control to save themselves, but then, I'm not supposed to be Code Jesus am I?
  • Playing around with the new Gnome Do 0.8.2. Docks are still rather pointless without a 22" screen. Sorry Deskbar, but I'm removing you for the new kid on the block.

Going down to JB on Friday, so probably have to use Conboy for writing.

So. I've just decided to maintain a diary in Tomboy, as a sort of desktop blogging engine (actually, 'blog' without the 'b'). Plan for now is:

  • Re-enable the Note of the Day plugin
  • Write an entry every day after work
  • I suppose this may change after Snowy comes out, or if I actually bother to sit down and finish build Nii, but we'll see.

At this point, I'm starting to get rather annoyed by the annoyingly thick squiggly red lines from Tomboy/GTK's dictionary, however. But I digress.

Read an e-magazine, PragPub July 2009, written by the Pragmatic Programmers, with some articles on layoff prevention in the IT industry, as well as several tips on job-hunting/resume-building. Feeling HT is slowly wearing out my patience; guess it is precisely this branch in the fates where I start seeking greener pastures?

Tasks today:

  • Discussion on CVS to Subversion migration with Jim and Chee Hong. Don't look very good, damn bureaucracy. One can only blame the college factories churning out regular quality graduates.
  • Playing around with organizing and deploying Panton with Galileo/Glassfish v2. Failed, so gave up and just used Netbeans 6.7.
