2:14 AM - The network is the computer...
Hmm.. i finally found 2 things i've been looking for. I've been wanting a serial cable to do beastie kernel debugging and an aui to ethernet adapter for my sun. Its rather useless right now sitting there. I just ordered those bad boys! Actually finding a cable for serial was trivial. I looked last year and couldn't find a damn null modem cable anywhere (that i'd buy from). They are in again for some UPS systems.
now i can connect the router to my dell and do serial connections :)
The sun will rock on the network. I'll have to figure out how to program the damn thing again. Its got solaris 2.6 on it :)
I almost tossed the sun recently. Its been awhile since i did sparc assembly, but i might be able to get into the groove again. At least i can test some of my code on a sun once in awhile.
music: Don't Go Away - Be Here Now - Oasis
12:33 AM - JJ
I've gone ahead and worked on JJ a bit. I'm in the middle of a very large change. Currently there is a Preferences class and a User class. I'm merging them into one. Most of the time I need to access the preferences class in my code and thats two object intstances plus 2 sql queries. It seems dumb and quite a few parts of my code could be tweaked (less params etc) if i merge them. The Preferences object has been around since 2003 and thats buried all over the place. I've also got some rendering and message bugs fixed.
