  • Gotta’ get ’em all.

    And now I have them all. Maybe I can reduce the load on my wan pipe by setting up a mirror for the island.

  • Jenkara is building

    Okay… after this morning’s post, I decided to make Jenkara build. It is now. You can get it thus: $ svn co http://svn.colliertech.org/svn/trunk/jenkara or $ wget http://www.colliertech.org/downloads/jenkara-0.0.1.tar.gz You can build it with ye olde $ ./configure && make there’s no install target, so run it with $ cd src && ./jenkara but it doesn’t work […]

  • GTK+ OpenGL work

    There’s an opening at Canonical that I’d like to take after the current contract is up. It’s an opening for a OpenGL dev on the Ubuntu desktop team. Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy working with my current group quite a bit. We’re building a pretty neat tool. However, building OpenGL into the GNOME desktop […]

  • An update

    I don’t really have anything really exciting to report, so y’all get to listen to me blather. And after all, that’s what blogs are for anyway, right? Zelda is turning 11 months old this month. This is still my favorite picture: I have been dishonorably discharged from Amazon. It seems that I am incompetent. It […]

  • Producing relocatable packages with the GNU build system

    I’ve recently found a need to create relocatable versions of some of my favorite libraries (produced, not-so-coincidentally by the GNU build system). You might find yourself asking “What is relocatable software, and why should I care?” Maybe I can help. A piece of software is said to be “relocatable” when it does not rely on […]

  • Prebuild Autotools target

    Hello public, I’m putting some effort into GtkGlAreaSharp again. The supporting bits aren’t really production-ready, though, so rather than hacking on the widget itself and its associated examples, I’m beefing up the underlying platform. The first step in the process is making Prebuild a viable meta-build system. Right now it works pretty well for generating […]

  • A (round-about) story about Jeffry P. Bezos

    The following is what i wrote on “43people.com” about the boss. I thought it was worth keeping in my own archives, since it’s actually a story about my life as it pertains to Mr. Bezos. Back a few years ago, I was taking some classes down in Edmonds. The one I’m thinking of in particular […]

  • Mono.Xna status

    Thank you _Alan_ for putting together this report on Mono.Xna’s implementation status. A quick overview is that we’ve got 95% of the methods stubbed out and maybe 1% fully implemented. Thank you jendave for your hard work on this! https://colliertech.com/~cjcollier/Mono/Xna/Status/20061221/FinalPage.html
