Blog Shifted

Behind the times as always, I am no longer being aggregated on Planet GNOME. I had an amazing time being on the Planet, and got some great input from the amazing people there. Thanks to Lucas for adding me to the Planet in the first place, and everyone in GNOME for being so awesome.

I’ve finally found the time to set up my server (after almost 6 months…). It’s still in bare bone stages, but I’d love to hear comments on it’s design.

Since I’ve Bean Loving You

21 10 2008

Once when the heart did flutter,
Every moment passing only to draw us closer
To glance upon you, my thoughts stuttered,
To breath you in, so refreshing, yet so dear.

As you moved through me, a warmth filled my chest
I was at your every beck and call
I swore I would withstand the test
A test of loss. I failed, and now I fall.

A craving left unsatisfied
You have moved forward, without heed to my growing addiction,
Without heed to the feelings of this body of but flesh and bone,
My sensous brown coffee bean.

Try as I might, I can’t kick the coffee habit.





Vimjuta 0.1.1 and Online

21 10 2008

I made a promise last week to come out with Vimjuta 0.2 over the previous weekend. I hate to say I broke the promise, the best I could come up with was a 0.1.1-ish “release” (it’s on SVN), fixing a very irritating and troublesome reference issue. I spent around 14 straight hours fixing that single issue, chasing my ref counts through Anjuta and fixing several inconsistencies along the way. I couldn’t find the time to fix the problems with the debugger and to re-implement some of the interfaces (mainly the search interfaces, which vim honestly has better functionality in). My new goal is to cut out about an hour every day of this week and work through the weekend (during which I am going home, away from the hectic campus life), and try and come up with a 0.2 release in time for Diwali (huge Indian festival). Wish me luck!

In other matters, I have finally made a small webpage for Vimjuta, hosted on my webserver at: http://arun.chagantys.org/projects/vimjuta/.
