YAWD (Yet Another Wasted Day)

Well not exactly a waste.... Thunderbird worked on Gentoo, so that's one of the major issues solved :) louiswu would make a wonderful salesperson. If he likes something, he'll go to great lengths to canvas for it. Did lots of things with Enlightenment today & in the end switched back to Gnome. Enlightenment doesn't seem stable enough for me & unless I can get themes working properly, I'm not switching to Enlightenment.

Got a few plugins for gkrellm (HDDtemp, Seti@Home, MoonClock). Quadra refused to compile (another thing i'll have to look into)

Started out with a bit of Linux Kernel Internals for the exam. No fun learning about the 2.2 Kernel when your using the 2.6.1-rc3 ;) I'm stuck at the Task Structure (didn't make an effort to go beyond that) & so that's as good as nothing done for the day. I'll do some Advanced Comp Architecture tomorrow, if I don't go to sleep after the first couple of pages.

The linux kernel internals subject is total brain dead one. From what I understand.. its nothing about the kernel, but more about mugging up all the data structures in the kernel

The subject as a whole is well written. Explains everything pretty well. The VTU wants only structures in the exams or we don't get marks. I don't know how its humanly possible to remember structures that are so huge & its the VTU that makes the subject a brain dead one.

And worse...
...it's the 2.2 kernel. Kind of annoying, that.

Re: And worse...
Blame the VTU. They have this extremely stupid rule which doesn't allow them to change the syllabus during the course. If you started in 2000, you do the 2000 thingy till you finish.

Point...
For the very same reason, I chose not to make my life more miserable by taking Linux Kernel Internals - opted for Distributed Computing instead - but that subject ain't great either! :-( At least I won't curse and swear, which I would have while mugging up the data structures had I taken LKI...

Not anymore :)

It was a WM, running on top of Gnome. Its a complete Desktop thingy now.

grrrrr..... it was a wm which ran only on gnome lon time back. Since quite a few releases it has standalone capabilities and is quite stable at that, but it can still run on gnome should any one so require

Ay-See-Ay!
Dude, this subject plain old sux! The book, though written by dudes from Berkeley, Princeton and Stanford, is as dry as a skeleton! Hope I pass in this monstruous p-o-s subject!

Re: Ay-See-Ay!
I totally agree. I don't know why in hell in the whole wide world should subjects like these be forced upon us ???

Re: Ay-See-Ay!
Hey, the subject is neat! That book is so freaky. Okay, it's not neat, but the subject is actually not too bad.

BTW, fox2mike will soon undergo a prefrontal lobotomy for equating me to a sales person.
