Friday

Went to work today and didn’t get much done. I have been debugging the installer for my Windows NT Service, and it is a case of tweaking, building an installer, installing inside a virtual machine, rebooting, and checking. Over and over again. Argh! We all got an early mark from work today, which was nice.

My afternoon was ruined by the incompetence of Telstra ADSL though. After two weeks of telling me that my application was under way and that I would have a connection by Christmas, they have now decided that ‘available’ means ‘will one day be available’, and that as soon as they have the relevant equipment in my local exchange, then I can have ADSL. This is meant to be February 2001. I am thinking of ringing the telecommunications industry ombudsman…

Had a look at PandaScript. I think all I need to do now is make up some documentation, and setup the standard distribution files… There is also the minor issue of multiline strings.

I also had a look at PandaLex, but I am still having some grief getting the lexer just right… This is holding up the development of Panda, so I am going to have to put some more time into it real soon now.

Had a really sore back and went to bed early after having some funky pain killers…
