Random stuff

Εὕρηκα! I have found it: final and conclusive proof that I am not the biggest nerd in the world!

This past weekend, Emily surprised me by coming down to visit. We went to the 3rd Street Promenade and had sushi (her first time eating real sushi). We also went to Venice beach and watched this dude catch a flounder. We tried to go see Grauman’s Chinese Theater, but they were opening The Fountain, and we couldn’t get through the throngs of Hugh Jackman fans. So instead, we drove up into the foothills and found some excellent views of the city. I introduced her to Jeeves and Wooster and Penn & Teller’s Bullshit. A good time was had by all.

I’ve been making some really stupid mistakes at work. Hopefully I can put a stop to them and get back to doing stuff correctly.

and I know I need to post news soon…

After a great afternoon/evening with Mike, Michael, Kenny, and John (during which we had sushi, went minigolfing, and watched a really fucked up movie), I have spent the past 2.5 hours trying to help my erstwhile frosh, Steven, install Gaim-LaTeX on his new Ubuntu system. The worst part? It still doesn’t work after all this effort. We have been hacking the files together, which involved manually copying files into /usr/include and /usr/lib/pkgconfig, as well as editing config.h, just to get the damn thing to compile. Now, it’s compiled and gaim recognizes it as a valid plugin, but it doesn’t seem to do anything. How frustrating! Unfortunately, apt-get doesn’t seem to have a package for Gaim-LaTeX, which is why we’re trying to do this by hand. Any idea what might be wrong? Does anyone know how to get Gaim to print out debugging information about this sort of thing?
