leave a comment »

I just added Insane Journal capabilities to Tickle Text, my super gro0vy, fully featured, tcl/tk text editor….

I so rock.
Now back to my translation work…

monitor = resolvido / resuelto / résolu

leave a comment »

Well…my staples “plug-n-play” monitor is now cooperating, and displaying at its “optimal native resolution” (being 1680×1050), without hiccoughing, complaining, or displaying “INPUT NOT SUPPORT” [sic] or “NO SIGNAL”.
The solution was, unfortunately, a proprietary driver…
I don’t like proprietary stuff.
But, I am using, now, the fgrlx driver, and all is visually gro0vy…

In other news, my car is here, in the driveway, now.
The guy I bought it from didn’t want it sitting around in his driveway any longer, so he slapped on a dealer plate and drove it over here…
I want to drive it now…
I’d better wait till I get the registration squared away on Tuesday, though.
Gosh…I could probably print my own “temporary plate”…but, I thinking risking being pulled over with a temp plate of my own creation might be unwise…
And, dude…those mechanics…they really know how to time a gas tank.
The car must have three drops of gasoline in it.
I hope it makes it to a gas station when I get the plate on it…
Of course, if I can get it to the end of the block, I could just about coast downhill to one about 5 blocks from here…

It looks as though, with the assistance of pne, that I have succeeded in adding mood, tunes, tags, to the lj posting feature in tickle text.

I have also succeeded in posting to other journals (ie. communities, first such post made to )

I may add additional features later today, but, I must catch a train and go interpret for a trial.

NEW Tickle Tunes release!

leave a comment »

I’ve released Tickle Tunes 0.7.

Added to this release:
support for DVD playing.
support for playing directories recursively (ie. a folder for an artist, and subfolders for albums, or, a folder for a genre, and all the artists and albums thereunder, etc.)

Also, the default theme is gro0vier.

deeper and deeper…

I’ve just totally sunk into a world of dark, blackness….
with pretty colored text.

I’m find myself using my terminal for anything I can get away with now…

chatting on irc with irssi
for instance…

listening to tunes while chatting on irc in irssi

the other tabs on my terminal or doing other stuff, too.

Heck, my last post…the long, long list o’ tunes, well, I did
ls -R /mnt/storage/tunes > tuneslist.txt
to pipe the list output from terminal to a text file.
Then I did use a gui text editor, my Tickle Text
to edit the rest of the html to make a web page with it…uploaded it with my TclUP
Before you know it, I’ll be editing html pages in nano in terminal and ftp-ing them to my site in a wish terminal (since tcl has good ftp tools)…
I’ll be writing lj-posts via e-mail with mutt, and reading my friend’s page with Lynx
I’m hopeless…
