Which Muse Doth Coding Inspire?

Unfortunately, due to the bursty nature of my creativity, I've not been very productive in the last month.

Working on Trebuchet, I've managed to make it look and work a lot better on MacOS X, but the sheer magnitude of bugs left to fix in TCL/Tk is absolutely depressing. I have managed to make a standalone Trebuchet.app application, that can handle SSL and JPEGs, though. I may need to consider releasing it as an alpha version, just to replace the really broken previous version, until Tk gets it's keyboard handling fixed.

I've gotten little done on FBMuck in the last month, but I've set up some other developers with access to patch bugs and such while I'm distracted by other projects.

The one burst of creativity I really did have last month was funneled into making a weather station data recorder and grapher, that I mentioned in my last post.

The Belfry is in need of cleanups, documentation, and interface improvements. I've been getting the itch to fix those up, recently, so that may be where my attentions turns next. I'm thinking I need to create a voting system in the submissions queue, to allow registered users to process the submissions in a more timely manner than I've been doing.

URANIA (muse of Astronomy)

Burning, thousands of light-years beyond,
The cold light reaches her upturned face.
Moon and sun eclipse her expression, yet
She is caught in valleys of light describing
Cosmic virtues and making patterns, weaving
Pictures. The songs she makes are of logic
And myth in time, in turn.

Which version of IMG are you using? I had *real* problems getting the later versions working, and had no suitable build enviroment to try to compile a static binary. (img wont even let you try to compile it in cygwin and I didnt have time to reverse enginer its make files.)

Sorry about not being able to get you a clean build of what I was working on. RL Work hassles dumped some extra shift paterns on me.

This was a MacOS X build, not a windows build I was referring to.

Yeah, I kind of realised that several hours later, but didnt have computer type access to retract it. Stupid me. How did you get img/tls support working on the mac then? I'd like to try and keep the Windows version of the same consistant if I can.

ps. Any thoughts on ability to autoupdate the tclkit binary?

Well, once I had TCL/Tk built for MacOS X, building Img was just a matter of compiling the Img package with the apropriate libraries staticly linked. At least I think that's what I did. This was a couple weeks ago and my memory is fuzzy.

Yep, thats what I'd worked out needed to be done on the windows side, but I dont have a windows compiler that it's willing to work with at the moment. Till then I'll try to wedge in the early version I'd got working.

    Clever! ^_^

    Was each link made from two pieces, or was there fill material inside that you removed? I'm having trouble seeing how to print these in a makerbot-compatible way (though I could just be overlooking…

    Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.

    Nice! ^_^ I was going to be flabbergasted if you were actually able to print it as a unit, but I guess that would take antigravity.

    I printed each piece individually and assembled them after some cleanup. I did print four segments at a time, though, unattached, in a 2x2 grid.
