Ouqi's thing:
Joining works. The page looks absurdly similar to livejournal... I need to change that later.
Logging in kinda works. Damn cookies are being stupid and not applying sometimes. I think the way I'm "installing" them is messed up.
print header(-cookie=>@cookies); (using CGI / perl)
Logging out... eh, also kinda works. Goddamn cookies. I think the problem is that I'm not... deleting cookies before making new ones? o.O So I have multiple cookies with the same value? I don't know. Safari has no nice cookies viewer, and it irritates the fuck out of me.

I need to toss in taint mode. I've been careful, but I'm slipping with the amount of code I'm spewing out. Eh. No, I'll pass on this for now. Not writing anything to file, only to database. Need to check everything from the user though, cookies, post, get, env...

Honestly, this is the project I'm most interested in at the moment, since I'm learning the most here, and there's less... reading of code, which is always harder than writing new code. But since this the the project where I don't get paid immediately, and I don't exactly have a _deadline_ set, dropping it until I have more time is an option. A bad option, but an option none-the-less, should time run out.

LiveJournal / Google SOC2006:
Honestly, it feels like it's not getting anywhere. Sure, I can upload zip files right now, but I might need to change the thing reading the uploading to use something else. And it's already July 18th. Precisely a month before school starts again.
I still need to save the data. Install it into the user's.. space/area. That's another challenge I'm not all too sure about.

Google begins issuing payments to mentoring organizations

I would like to get this done before Karen gets here from Canada though. That means getting everything done by Aug 4.

Plus, I had originally planned to study that class I dropped. >.> That's not happening much at all.

[edit] I also need to clean up my room and my e-mail and get my family-related life more organized. Mom's leaving tomorrow to go back to Taiwan until the 6th of august, I think, or some time around then... so I'll be in charge of cooking, cleaning, keeping the little sister in order, driving said sister, etc.

Mmm, 5 star hotel. =^^= Or, well, whatever, it has internet, and that's all that's important. Free for only the first day, but hey, I'm only here for the night, so that's not a problem.

It's just 10:40 here. But 1 AM at home.

Uh... AirTran, the airline I rode, was pretty good. Their flight attendants were pretty active, with at least one traveling down the aisle once every 30 minutes or so to ask if people wanted water or to offer cookies. XM Radio was spiffy.

San Francisco's airport (SFO) is pretty awesome. At least the trams that circle the airport. They kinda remind me of the (kinda) new trams in Taiwan.

It's cold here. Like... 60ยบ. O.o I'm in shorts and a t-shirt. ::makes a face:: Thanks goodness my more formal stuff is long sleeved.

Rode the BART from the airport to the hotel, their equivalent of our metro. But not as new looking. Announcements of doors closing, and arrivals at stops were announced by the driver. And occasionally couldn't be heard.

Uh. I'm going to bed. I'm tired, despite sleeping lots on the plane.

AirTran Airways # 67
Washington Dulles Intl (IAD) to Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson ATL (ATL)

AirTran Airways # 57
Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson ATL (ATL) to San Francisco International
Departure (ATL): June 19, 6:25 PM EDT (evening)
Arrival (SFO): June 19, 8:40 PM PDT (evening)
Check in, maybe wander around San Francisco a tad bit. Anyone got places I should try to visit? Keep in mind I'm arriving at 8:40 PM~ so most places might be closed already.

Sleep the night at the Courtyard Downtown (299 2nd St).

Check out, head on over to SixApart's office (548 4th Street) around 10. If I manage to wake up earlier, there'll be the option of wandering around a bit.

That'll give us 12 hours to talk, more or less. Minus lunch and dinner. Although I don't think we'll need 12 hours~ so I think I'll still have time left over to wander a bit. And since transportation back to the airport could take 30-60 minutes, I should probably plan to be heading back to the airport around 8:30 or so. Granted, I'm paranoid, so the numbers may seem silly. ::doesn't want to run for planes again though...::

God bless Google Earth. :D Nothing like doing a bit of bird's-eye sight-seeing before wandering out there.

Yay, my surprise present came today! Only slightly disappointed, 'cause I was kinda hoping for some awesome geeky toy or other. And I'm not too sure how I'll use this.

It was a padded brown notebook, with Google on the front cover. There's "CASTELLI" and 67625, "MADE IN ITALY" written on the back.

It is really pretty though. Thank you, Google!

[edit] whoops, "made in italy", not "made int italy"

Mostly so I can keep track of my thoughts for the LiveJournal Style Upload system...

It was originally a user, until I realized how annoying it would be to post to the journal... so it's now a community. Posting access is restricted, but it's open membership. There wouldn't be a point in joining though, 'cause it's just going to be me rambling on about... thoughts. -.-;;

Deck is now 1/3 of the way powerwashed. Took me... mm... 2 hours? ^^;; I think I'm going too slowly. But the new 1800 psi electric power washer thingie is nice. It's only noisy when you're actually using it. And it means I can't run out of gas and have to refill it and what not.

Sure, it's slightly less powerful than the old 2300 psi gas-based one, but meh, I don't need that much power anyways.

Now to unplug and shove it into a corner so it doesn't get rained on, eat lunch, shower, and figure out how to get to Jai's house.

LJ-G SOC2006:
looking at MT templates. Need to download MT::Template and see how I can use that to my advantage.

Should be able to upload not only layouts, but also mood themes, mayhaps? Mood themes wouldn't be too bad, although I don't know if I'll still have to go through the console. Layouts... I think we may end up breaking it up into separate pages, one for recent entries, one for single pages, one for calendar... one for friends... anything else I'm missing?

I really ought to make a separate journal for this.

Let's see. My last significant post was May 24th, more or less... So starting from the most recent events

So I have my LiveJournal mentor now: [livejournal.com profile] whitaker. I should probably friend him here, although chances are, most of our communication will be done over e-mail. I'm still trying to decide if I want to branch off a new journal for the project.

Copying and pasting from the LiveJournal Summer of Code project idea page:
LiveJournal Style Upload
Create a system to upload a style/theme as a zip file of template files/CSS/images/etc, and then convert/compile that into S2. Support MT/Blogger/Wordpress/Smarty templates? Something that's easy for users to open up (the zip), edit, and re-upload. Involves defining archive format, and implementing server-side code to parse and recompile to native formats.

Which, by the way, if you design layouts ([livejournal.com profile] xella and [livejournal.com profile] selphish, you two come to mind), what would you like to see supported? It's still in the design stages right now - I'm still looking at various styles/themes/layouts and trying to figure out what we'll need to support.

I was originally just thinking it'd only be template files, but my mentor tells me that images may be included... possibly... and hosted "somewhere in lj-land".

More recent stuff, along with plans for the next few days.... )

Congratulations! This email is being sent to inform you that your
application was accepted to take part in the Summer of Code. Please
check your student home page in the SoC web app at
http://code.google.com/soc/student_home.html to determine which of
your applications was accepted.

You know what's weird... I would have sworn I dreamt this morning that I went to a page that said out of all the applications accepted for that livejournal project, mine was the third best. ^^;; Damn realistic dreams. So I've been confuzzled the past... 15 so minutes, trying to figure out if this was some mistake or joke~

But it does say "Application accepted!" on my home page. So I'm assuming my application did make it through. Yay~!

Your mentoring organization will likely also set up similar lists for
you and your cohorts so that they may interact with you on your
project. You should not wait for them, please feel free to contact
them and let them know you are ready to start developing open source
software with them.

Right, must go hunt down... errr... people... I guess I should ask [livejournal.com profile] brad first? Eh, either way, it'll have to wait until I get back from my doctor's appointment.
