A collection of opinions, thoughts, tricks and misc. information.
Short rant, but to hell with gnome for their libraries and dependencies. Just package glib, pango, atk, gtk, gtkmm, glibmm, and every other freaking pain in the ass library I need to install to get the gimp up and running in ONE thing!
Pat from Slackware thought the same thing, and I'm sure the folks over at Freerock curse your name every time a new library comes out. ARGH!
Heh. The framework's getting MUCH easier to use
... And it's still not quite where I want it... Here's a quick little sample, a user registration process. This is the ENTIRE thing. Form validation, generation, database entry,
etc. We've even got a great captcha generator that handles them fairly transparently.
A focus on finishing up unit tests comes tomorrow after work... After that I'll be doing a separation between the server and framework, and then a few touchups and additions to the library and it's ready for the first alpha release... (it might be a while).

# Creates a quick template file... We delete this command as soon as it's been run.
