Actually, I suppose the flight has really just begun. It's true that GSoC is nearly at its end but, ironically enough, it doesn't really feel like the end but more of a new beginning. A new debug data format is in the works and it has so much potential!

Well, GSoC is starting to wind down. I can't believe it's almost over. It feels like the "pencils down" date just jumped up out of nowhere. I had a lot more planned for HBDB but there are many flaws in Parrot's design that make even some of the most basic debugging tasks very difficult which I'll explain in a moment.

It is a period of binary war. Rebel hackers, striking from a hidden base in New Jersey have won their first victory against the evil IMCC Empire.

This past week was admittedly dull. I've reached a bit a road block and this time it's blocking the way forwards, backwards, left, and right.

Okay seriously, besides Futurama being the greatest show ever, I actually do have good news. Last week was a very successful week. I was able to implement several commands within just a few days. They're still a bit "rough around the edges" but they work none the less.

Nothing too spectacular went on this past week. It mostly consisted of typical technical work. If I had to pick one thing that was significant, it would be that I was able to eliminate all build warnings/errors in gcc and g++. Eliminating those warnings was incredibly irritating and honestly, I don't really know how I fixed it. Actually, I shouldn't say that. I do know how I fixed it but what I don't understand is why the first method didn't work in the first place but this one does. Oh well...it works.

I must be brief again as 1) I am using my laptop which has a terrible battery and 2) I am writing from the car and this is making me carsick. :-C~
This past week was a little bitter sweet. Bitter because I did not have much time for GSoC work but sweet because I was at YAPC::NA with some of the other Parrot developers. As much as I would like to talk about YAPC (which was awesome sauce), I must limit myself to GSoC-only topics.

This week in HBDB-land was very significant. I was finally able to achieve command recognition. I had abandoned work on it for about a week because it was such a nuisance. Instead, I focused on testing which was a pain as well but it got done. Reluctantly, I returned my focus to the command parsing logic and within 5 minutes, I had solved my problem with a single ampersand. This makes me so happy.

Ok, not literally. Though I wonder what code would actually smell like. Burning brain cells, maybe?
Alright, here's the scoop. I'm going to keep things brief as I eagerly want to get back to my adorable little segfaults. :)

This week in HBDB world was very productive. I was able to identify the root of all the difficulties and complications that I've been experiencing: poor design.
