12:33 AM - JJ

Haven't posted much about JJ lately.  I've done some work on it tonight.  Source forge made some major changes to the CVS service.  I'm debating what to do at this point. 

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. 


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.
