accomplishments! [Nov. 19th, 2000|11:20 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
--- sent x2vnc author a patch that basically completes a feature that he never implemented but had all the framework for: saving encrypted passwords in a text file to use instead of typing it at the command line... this way I don't need to use an expect script to start it, my password isn't in clear text, and it no longer needs to open a tty to run, so I can run it from my gnome panel directly, without launching an xterm first.

--- did a bunch of chores, in an effort to clean up our house.

--- completed by compiler homework w/ scott. who needs a postscript printer when you have ps2pdf and a acrobat on windows? *sigh* ... anybody know how to get a HP Deskjet 970Cse to work under Linux? i suppose i could research it. heheh.... stupid Linux. gots to be all difficult and without any standards. *sigh again*
