Ok, that makes me feel a little better.
Insane kitty is getting wise to the "medicine hidden in the food" trick, and I had to catch her without her being medicated. Got her to the vet, and it's not what we had originally though (infection with abcess). Test results for fungal infection (ringworm) should be back today, but we expect it to be negative. Now, assuming it is negative, we just have to catch her twice a day to put ointment on it and hope it heals...
On the technical side, I've mentioned my favorite C compiler before. It really is.
I've been using it long enough so that my fingers "think" in this dialect. And a few years ago, I found myself doing (as usual) a big project in DeSmet C. And started thinking about C compilers and playing with them.
So, I went on a hunt for the source to the compiler (the compiler vendor had long since vanished). With a little help from Google and Superpages, I managed to find the people, and recovered the source.
But the one thing I couldn't get was the source to the version I use all the time, and the most common version out there -- version 2.51 (found around the net as PCC 1.2d). So, a while back I started re-creating it. I'll talk more about that next time.
