Seahorse 0.9.6

We kicked a new release of the Seahorse development branch out the door last night. This is the first release with our Epiphany plugin and management of gnome-keyring passwords. There were some usability fixes committed and several crashers fixed as well. You can read the full release notes here and grab the source from CVS or GNOME FTP. A Slackware package is already available in Dropline GNOME's 2.16.1 Pre-Release.

Good day Sir! I said Good Day!!

Today was indeed a good day. I confirmed results from code that computes radial and angular prolate spheroidal functions (fixing several bugs along the way) which moves me one step closer to performing computations. My new sculling oars from Concept II shipped today, a whole 12 days before the predicted ship date. That's the kind of thing that makes me have warm fuzzy feelings about a company. Never you mind that all oars ordered from them are custom made.

Food Science

Yesterday and today have been spent in the kitchen.

Yesterday I finally brewed up a batch of Raspberry Hefeweizen that I've been meaning to. The partial boil went swimmingly and the yeast started actually started this time, but fermentation was a bit slow to start. I can only assume I didn't get the temperature of the wort down to 70 degrees Fahrenheit quickly enough. The airlock was cheerfully bubbling away this morning though and the out gas smells good, so I'm hopeful for a good batch of beer in the end. I'll get around to posting pictures of my kegerator for homebrew at some point.

Today I decided to try my hand at pasta; specifically ravioli. So far the pasta and the filling are made (so far so good). I was going to serve them for dinner tonight, but a roommate asked me to switch dinner nights with him so they're on the menu for tomorrow night. I'll probably finish making the ravioli sometime this afternoon.
