The most obscurely English page on the entire Internet. Molesworth meets Mornington Crescent.

Coo ur gosh.

Sonic BOOM!

Couple of mornings ago, I was woken up at around 5.10am by two loud bangs that shook the house. “What was that?” I think… I figure it was a brief earthquake jolt of the kind that are common here, and went back to sleep.

Today I realised what it really was… the Space Shuttle entering the atmosphere on its way to land at Edwards. Bloody astronauts. Always making a big entrance.

DLL Hell

Gaim & Eclipse don’t play nicely together!

At least not where Cygwin is concerned. The problem is the tcl dll you see. Eclipse (actually CDT) requires Cygwin in the path to be able to run gdb. gdb requires that I install Cygwin’s tcl. As soon as that happens, Cygwin’s tcl masks Gaim’s tcl and Gaim fails to run.

But if Cygwin isn’t in the path, try as I might, I can’t get Eclipse to launch gdb properly. However, I can get it to run make, g++, etc by setting the project paths correctly. Perhaps I can get this to apply to gdb as well.

Curiously, gaim runs correctly when I launch the exe, just not from a shortcut.
