Sorry about the recent errors in the tutorials, you try to fix one thing and ten more seem to pop up. Apparently google has spidered this page(rather unexpecatedly, I might add) before I was fully ready to unviel the SDL series – my fault for putting them up. All is good now, as I believe I’ve found all the errors in the first one, and am on the lookout for people visiting now. Thanks to everyone that emailed me encouragement to continue the series – I plan to, although a bit more carefully. I don’t want to spend my life editing tutorials instead of writing them.

I’ve gotten a bit bored with the site look and layout, and since I plan on posting a couple new projects, expect to see some changes shortly. I’ve started moving toward generating all these pages via scripts(but keeping them static on the server), to make editing news, and adding tutorials a bit easier. The next set is in the works, but after I put them up(there are 3 more), I’m going to take a timeout to make this site a bit more managable – in addition to reformating the older tuts.

Distro news, not much new to report here, except that I’ve decided I hate RPMs. I hate that the LSB requires RPM compatibility. SPEC files are the devil.

Yet another day of mindless distro hacking. QT 3.0.1 was released today. Nifty. So far, LSB progressions have been pretty good, and QT 3.0.1 compiled without a hitch. Given the current status of KDE development, I’m going to start migrating all the packages to KDE-3. Now, the good news:¬†the major portions of the base redo are done.¬†This means that another beta is getting a lot closer.

DO NOT EAT AT MCDONALD’S. They are the Satan of this world. Part of the great head of evil. Yes fokes, today I have experienced the wonders of the Big XTra, little did I know that the Extra was a wonderful bit of food poisoning. Having had all sorts of nasty stuff in the past, I think that this is the worst I have ever felt, in my life ever. There is no escaping from the pain that is the golden arches – in either end. Now, excuse me as I puke up my guts, again.
