Jesus I'm bored. I also noticed I only ever made two diary entrys here, and decided it was time for an update.

Problem with a public diary is that I can't talk about the things that are really bugging me, as I know some of my friends [Hey guys!] read this. I guess I'll keep my secret dark hidden diary, and use this one for fluffy happiness.

Anyway, I've (as usual) done absolutely nothing opensource related in recent weeks, as I've been concentrating on moving and other mundane life issues. I feel so damn old these days.

I'm eighteen years old, with my own two bedroomed apartment (I just moved, and I'm still delighted with it), a steady job and so forth. I feel like I'm 35 years old already. Maybe I need to go get rip-roaringly drunk and enjoy myself for a change. Or just get laid.

I noticed most people only use advogato to talk about what they hacked this week. More people need to use it to discuss personal things - after all, the point of a diary is to get these kind of things into the open. Nobody wants to read a daily list of activities, get personal people.

Well, I'm here sitting in the office listening to strange guitar music behind me, and typing away into this tiny little diary box. It really needs to be a whole lot bigger, like the size of the screen or something. Anyway, the place is filled with a bunch of geeks all playing around with their machines and getting absolutely no real work done. Oh well, it's a monday - nobody manages well on a Monday, right?

I need something exciting to do, I'm bored of sitting here reading slashdot repeatedly in the hope that something interesting will turn up. My life needs some spice.

Well. Advogato is growing fast. I think some sort of system is needed whereby you can have a shortlist of people you wish to track. I don't want to wade through every account each day to find certain people, and I don't want to bookmark them as I use different computers most of the time.

So basically I want a button to add them to a shortlist, so I can stalk^Htrack those people mentioned.

I'd also love to see an experiment with *two* levels. A general contribution rating, and a project specific rating. So for example, I could rate a FreeBSD developer as a master at FreeBSD, but a Journeyer in general.

I'm not sure it would be entirely workable, but it would be interesting to have multiple levels to rank on. Maybe even split it into "Documentation/Coding/General/SomeOtherStuff" and rank those. Might make the whole thing too much work.

Oh, and I noticed people rating ESR as dimwit, because they believe he's a fraud. Isn't that the wrong way to look at the whole thing? I ranked ESR as I really would, because then it stops being a reflection on the person hidden behind the alias, but a reflection of the skills of the REAL person. Much more satisfying to see.

Hmm. Unlike the rest of you eleet people, I spent my day attempting to make Enlightenment compile under FreeBSD.

It failed badly, because dox/file.c requires wctype.h, which isn't included in FreeBSD. I need to try my first real coding and hack at dox/ until it compiles and *runs* under FreeBSD. Jesus, I suck.
