16:28:50 # Life gworldclock i18n. It took me a long time to hack it up, since I was not accustomed to GTK2 which tries to handle all chars in UTF-8. The patch is here. The notable portions were:

	 item_factory = gtk_item_factory_new (GTK_TYPE_MENU, "<main>", NULL);
	 gtk_item_factory_set_translate_func (item_factory, translate_func, NULL, NULL);
	 gtk_item_factory_create_items (item_factory, 
	 popup = gtk_item_factory_get_widget (item_factory, "<main>");

set_translate_func here.

const gchar* 
translate_func (const gchar * s, gpointer * v)
     translation function used for itemfactory

  return gettext(s);


  bindtextdomain(PACKAGE_NAME, LOCALEDIR);
  bind_textdomain_codeset (PACKAGE_NAME, "UTF-8");

20:10:09 # Life Found that there is a trackback for elisp implemented on 10 Jul 2003. google couldn't find it yesterday, but it does find it now. Interesting to see a different and elegant implementation. probably here, currently not available and google cache

18:12:30 # Life Added trackback ping send ability to dancer-diary.el. It is quite interesting. I don't think it is possible to extend this system to receive trackback pings; but anyway, ideas are flowing inside my head.

23:34:32 # Life Is dancer-diary.el the first elisp to implement trackback protocol?

22:04:51 # Life Updated documentation for pbuilder. I consider important that documentation reflects the bug reports, so that users won't have to search over the Internet. Internet has some good information, but it is not always updated and never centrally controlled. You never know whether to trust information on the Net.

21:04:10 # Life Response from Greg KH, saying that my patch does not apply cleanly on 2.4.22-pre3, so I need to resend the patch against the latest (unreleased) source. Do I venture into bitkeeper?
