Eli's computer is fucked. He installed some windows 3.1 device drivers and scanner programmer to get an old umax scanner and ISA SCSI card working, but upon rebooting it gives a ton of "can't find foo.vxd" messages. I looked at it for a few minutes but got bored. I'm so helpful. Erik's going to fix it.

I'm getting really pissed off at Swing. Key bindings for a JTextField work on windows, but not Linux. Listening to the key events and moving the caret and manipulating the text myself works, but does everything double on Windows. Java the language rules... Java the platform sucks ass. I'm reading all the bugs at developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/ .... wow. Incredibly buggy. *sigh*

Blythe and Chuck want to go to Marcus' soon here. I want to program... maybe I'll go for awhile. I dunno.

That's my biggest gripe with all the open source stuffs.. Sometimes its buggy as shit, and you don't find out til you start working with it.. but there's no real way to know til ya dig in.

And so it goes..
