Have new glasses now. They let me actually read stuff better! I can focus now! Yay!

I've found out the writing documentation is an excellent way of finding missing features. The documentation is part of my project report, which has to be handed in, with my project, in Thursday 4th May (which, coincidentally, is a parliamentary by-election for the Romsey constituency in which I live). Up to about 1400 words. (The word limit in the report (excluding appendices) is 10000 words, so that's a fair amount. Of course, the bit I'm writing is an appendix. Ooops.

I am going to be hacking on gote very late today, now I have identified some definite things to do, and the deadline is flashing in big red letters in my mind. Or at least it should be by now.

I've noticed some people have removed diary entries. Is is of course their right to do this, but removal of stuff usually indicates it should not have been put up in the first place. Remember, everything you say is on-the-record. I remember a situation when a friend of mine was very upset about what was said about them in an online diary of someone we met up with. I'm not sure what I'm trying to say here, just, be careful, don't say anything you will regret.

At conferences and gatherings with many hackers, we should all attempt to exchange gpg fingerprints, so we can sign each others keys and create a decent web of trust. Right now, at Southampton I'm part of a rather pathetic web of trust containing myself, zoot, and 4 others. If I get the chance to go to something like guadec again, I will get business cards with my fingerprint on them.

Have spent too long writing this diary entry and reading news and dealing with mail. But nevermind.
