Went by Ruby Tuesday to visit Stacie. Studied GTK+ 2 layout managers (packing widgets) such as packing boxes and packing tables. Stacie and I grabbed a quick bite to eat at Krystal for dinner and watched Citizen Kane.
Construction recently severed the connection to the Psi Upsilon Fraternity, where the server (
gehennom) that hosts this web site is maintained. As an unfortunate result, this web site was down for a number of days.
Katherine and Stacie wrote me testimonials on Friendster.
Stacie and I watched Manhattan. I got an oil change and also called Comcast (678-545-6683) to change the name under which our cable modem service is registered. Finally, I talked to the leasing office and they came by and fixed our leaky air conditioning and sticky lock.
I reviewed the GTK+ tutorial, covering the theory of signals, events, and signal handlers. To compile using GTK+ 2, we use simply the command line:
gcc file.c -o filepkg-config –cflags –libs gtk+-2.0“. Also registered a few domain names, such as zd9.net, ds-x.com, and sd-9.net.
Had lunch with Stacie and Tina at the Chinese Buddha. Upgraded Debian packages. I received my Instrumentation & Circuits Lab grade by e-mail today and filled out the class surveys. I can’t seem to get spell check enabled using Evolution, and it seems that the friendly folks at debian-user can’t either. Contacted Relevant Arts after fixing the e-mail exploit in cgiemail, and my payment should arrive in the mail sometime soon. Modifications were made mostly to the
cgilib.c file; you can get the patch here.
I took my excruciating three hour Microelectronic Circuits exam in the evening and it’s all over now. It has been an interesting term. And now I don’t really know what to do with myself except sit and relax and enjoy the rest of the day.
The group and I had lunch at Panera Bread, a sandwich shop near Doc Chey’s Noodle House. I spent most of the day studying for my Microelectronic Circuits exam tomorrow. Studied with Chris at Georgia Tech in the evening, and watched Sex and Lucia at night before heading to sleep.
For dinner, everyone met at Buffalo’s for Stacie’s twenty first birthday before returning to our apartment for the party. A lot of people showed up, many of them Alabama School of Mathematics and Science alumni. Even my friend David made an appearance.
I also met a girl named Beth at the party. She is Ethan’s friend, and attends classes at Emory University.
The final exam in Instrumentation & Circuits Lab went as well as expected. One more final exam to go. Stacie and I went to the International House of Pancakes for lunch. Stacie, Tina, Ethan, Nicky, and I went to Olive Garden for dinner.
The afternoon was spent installing the Apache web server and configuring CGI access for local development use in order to fix an exploit in cgiemail for a consulting job with Relevant Arts. I’ll take a look at the exploit again on Monday; I’ve got finals to study for this weekend.
I talked to Sarah today; it’s been a really long time. Spent the evening studying for Instrumentation & Circuits Lab. In the evening, Stacie and I watched a movie that I would rather not talk about in public, though I don’t think it belongs in the worst one hundred movies of all time.
Studied admittance parameter (Y-parameter) two port networks in the morning before class, and reviewed ideal transformers. Stacie and I had dinner at Fellini’s Pizza. Though I already exercise every morning, I’ve decided to try out the Hacker’s Diet fitness ladder.
Stacie and I had lunch Nuevo Laredo Cantina. After a short nap in the evening, we left for Sam’s Club. I installed the latest GNUCash for Debian unstable and all is well again. Studied about block ciphers, primarily, mono-alphabetic substitution ciphers.
