At The Ritz.
I now own another two motors that look identical to those that come with the Lego™ Mindstorms kit. Slightly worrying is that these are known to fail. Conversely the four turntables should come in quite handy.
Another Moodysson. He almost reaches von Trier-levels of blackness here, and once again proves he is worth keeping an eye on.
With Peodair. The crowd was serious. I remember him blowing the outro to I Want You.
I've put off trying out darcs for ages, indeed, longer than I've been
putting off checking my stuff into a crusty old CVS repository. My main
operations are diffing (to see if I've screwed things up more than I'm aware
of) and finding that little bit of code from ten revisions back that hacked
around that little problem that came back.
pcl-cvs in XEmacs was
good for the former, and I just dug around in the repository itself for the
Well, it works, and that's a good start. A Haskell program doing useful things? Unheard of!
With Sean at the Academy Twin. If they'd billed it as a RomCom I could have saved myself $12. Audrey was her usual ace self, the rest more-or-less forgettable. As far as I could tell there's only one plot point, and Xavier (the French stud who incidentally writes screenplays for this sort of pap for a living) chooses the predictably capricious path of cliche purely so that the movie can last a respectable amount of time. Everyone loves being told what they already know...
I've been meaning to get a new X-server for a long time now, as the one I
have is bug ridden. I thought I'd managed to upgrade it in the past, as the
build process for these X.org servers continues after fatal errors... and
make World kicks off a big clean, which makes
this behaviour both misleading and somewhat useless to non-hardcore hackers.
The short story is that at this point in time X.org R6.9.0 does not
readily compile on Mac OS X 10.4 (using GCC 4.0), but R6.8.2 does
after you do some fiddling. Most of the trick is to replace the files that
fail to compile with their updated selves in a R6.9.0 tree, and the rest is
a small tweak to
darwinKeyboard.c. Here's a patch that does it
for you. Apply it with:
patch -p1 < patch-Xorg-R6.8.2-OSX-10.4.3-GCC-4.0.1
Thanks to Torrey Lyons for the pointers.
On Cath's recommendation. Very Swedish. The subtitles I had seemed to leave out a lot of nuance.
