Basically, bt let me know about a slight namespace collision between Solace (my ongoing renderer project) and Solace (an online boardgame). Fwee.
Update: The situation has been resolved in a way agreeable to both. If only all trademark issues were so easily dealt with. :)

Thank you for applying for the Graphics Programmer position. After careful consideration, we have decided that we need to keep looking for someone who is a better fit. We will keep your resume on file in case other positions become available.I wonder how careful the consideration was, considering they never even, say,called me on the phone to talk. What, am I supposed to put every single graphical effect I've ever coded on my resume? It's not like they even requested a portfolio...

Though the really upsetting thing about this is knowing that I would have gotten an interview if I'd known about the job posting just a few weeks ago. Bad timing strikes yet again.

Anyway. The presentation I gave on my research and such today at WSMR went well, but of course they're not hiring right now. They were pretty interested anyway, though, and very impressed with my work. No prospect for a job through them at this time, but at least it gives me networking contacts.

phpBB needs a better upgrade mechanism. One which doesn't require the admin to take a crash-course in SQL to learn how to fix the horribly-broken tables.
(If you already had an account, it should still work just fine, though you may need to clear your cookies to get in. Also, all avatar images got deleted.)
Update: Except for that little problem of not being able to post anything. God damnit.
FUCK SHIT ASS TITS CUNT MOTHERFUCKER COCK MEKROB Golly, something still seems to be amiss. Anyone know how to get postgres to list and possibly drop all tables matching a certain pattern? I think a total from-scratch reinstall is in order. (Don't worry, I backed up all the comments first.)
Update: Fuck it. Just fucking fuck it. All prior comments are lost, and there's nothing I can do about it, thanks to phpBB's fragile database schema and totally opaque configuration, relying on SQL to configure things which really shouldn't be configured in SQL.
I think I'll try Ikonboard. Tomorrow.

Maybe I'll try replacing the cover with the hardwood floor cover that ddrfreak.com recommends so highly. In the meantime I think I'll switch to using the 2P pad for a while.
