I took the weekend off, and then work has been lots and lots of minutae. I opened Bluefish to work on a page to let production add some brigades. About 5pm, Ramp asked if I needed any help, and I showed him my 4 line page – all that I’d managed to get done inbetween distractions and diversions.
Gophur stumbled across a fairly crucial issue with oversupply and got stroppy about the oversupply “ceiling” – which has never been in the release game, so I went ahead and implemented it (its soft-set at 10% but its a config option production can set).
Found a bunch of text that was being sent in English (vs localization tokens), and started the final cleanup of fallback – including letting the issuing officer know what brigades/divisions are causing a problem.
Also solved a problem that was causing you not to get your vehicle reserved when you RTBed sometimes (primarily BEF/ArFR stuff).
Most productive thing I got done was the propagation of factory link status. I replaced it with a really elegant flood fill that takes under 200 microseconds (0.2ms) instead of 11ms before.
Finished Harry Potter book 7 – not bad, but the wrap was a bit of a dissapointment. The ending is fine, it just happened so abruptly. I can’t help but think the room it left opens the door for non-Potter books.
A while ago, I found a link or someone emailed me about some Mac widgets that use Wiretap. Rickb got an iPhone and has already been “hacking” it adding things like a shell and ssh access. I thought it’d be a great place to try out those Wiretap widgets. Anyone happen to have a link?
