My sleep schedule is totally out of whack. I cannot sleep before 3 AM (sometimes I stay awake until 7 AM), then I cannot get up before noon.
As a result I have more free time for hacking. Today I tried to play around with Metacity's compositor, with some mixed success. I also built a patched FBReader with a numeric page indicator tweaked to the size and position of my liking (screenshot). Bzr rocks for maintaining branches!
eazysvn also got a facelift today. It is now installable with easy_install.
I do not like easy_install. It wants to install stuff into /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages. That location is reserved for Debian packages. A sensible default would be /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages or, preferably, somewhere in my home directory, with the caveat that I'll have to set up PYTHONPATH myself. You can force easy_install to do more or less what you want, but that involves reading tons of documentation, invoking arcane multi-thousand line scripts, or sacrificing small animals. Not my definition of "easy".
In the mean time, actual paying work suffers. Karmic retribution for those three 11-and-a-half hour days I spent at work during the first week of January? No, just lack of willpower to force myself to go to sleep (or wake up) early instead of, for example, blogging.
