Got a fair bit of work on the final year project user interface done — it is starting to look a little bit sexy. I had forgotten about the second speach recognition assignment, so I should start to look into that…

I have a CVS log graphing script, which I have been using for final year project. I thought I would run it on the Samba source code… Has anyone else noticed that the log file is 716,291 lines (thats 25,382,244 bytes)?

The problem with the current method is that there is a pretty column header jpeg generated for each source file which has ever been editted, and this slows down generation, as well as making the output of the script a lot bigger on disc (lots and lots of little images). I think that I need to refactor the script so that the days of the month (which hardly ever change) are across the top, and the source files are on the rows.

The old method worked well for smaller projects, but isn’t so crash hot for the huge ones… On the up side, the header images are only ever generated once, and then reused…

Check the report out for yourself
