Scheming for freecell

I didn't really feel like starting work on Straw's subscription categories today, so I was procrastinating playing freecell. Then I got once again annoyed by the fact that the Aisleriot freecell doesn't support supermove, so I decided to fix that instead. I think that was the first time I did anything in Scheme beyond a hello world (so the patch isn't big, but I needed a bit more code to create an initial deal to make testing things fast.) Gotta love Aisleriot, it was just so much nicer than it would have been had it been in C.

PCL-CVS

Argh. PCL-CVS (2_9_9, comes with Debian's XEmacs package) is giving me Connection refused to Savannah when plain old CVS works just fine, even from a shell buffer. Can't figure out why.

...

Oh well, it works from GNU Emacs. Maybe time to switch Emacs families once again, I've been now three years or so with XEmacs, that's about as long as I usually stick with one of them.

Lisbon

Flew to Lisbon early Friday morning with coworkers, saw some sights, got plenty drunk and afterwards a two day long splitting headache caused by neck pain (luckily painkillers helped at least the first day), ate several servings of absolutely lousy food (you get the idea that the Portuguese aren't big on vegetarianism), thought the city was really beautiful, was extremely happy to get back home at midnight yesterday.
