After a fourth day of compiling software, my laptop is finally up to date and fully equipped for development again. I just need to get the XFire plugin fixed. Either I need to revert it (again) to an ancient version, or port the modern versions to FreeBSD; and hope the developers accept the patches. It's all because some stupid moron couldn't look up whether some function_like_this() was part of the GNU C library, or POSIX; which is silly because those functions tend to look likthis().
On the upside, this week I've gotten another 80 minutes driving time after dark. Giving a cycle since January, of: 60, 40, 40, 40 minutes. For a grand total of 180 minutes, or 3 hours out of the 6 required hours. It will likely take another 2 or 3 weeks... grr. The only good thing I can really say, is that modern lisp lets me express the arithmetic as:
> (+ 1 2/3 2/3 2/3) 3 >
Which is kind of handy.
Yes, I like lisp.
