Yes, yes, I know ENIGMA has problems. Stop checking out before Ism posts a compatible revision number (which you can look up at any time on the IRC... Maybe I can have a2h keep one here and IsmBot can check it as well).

ANYWAY. I am in the belly of finals week. Right now, I can't whimsically fix things. Ism recommended I update to Lucid. To do that, I'd have to go through Karmic. Well, now my box won't boot. So even when finals week is over (Thursday I either sink or float), I can't immediately fix ENIGMA as my box is dead. (It can heal while I work from a lap top, though).

- Hey, how are finals going so far?
Great, thanks for asking! (No, no one asked.)
So far, I am done with Computer Architecture. My professor may be the kindest on the planet, I'm thinking. I finished off with a 101% or so, which may be enough to help counter the 10% I'm about to be awarded in Political Science by a professor I can only describe as a typical politician. There's a sort of metaphysical wind blowing between the two buildings housing the aforementioned professors. If that sentence doesn't make sense to you, go study how wind and convection work and get back to me later.

And speaking of metaphysical whatever, today (in seven hours as of the posting of this message) I give a lecture (for 5-15 minutes) on Xenu. In front of 300 people or more. If I don't edit this by 9:00 that night, assume that I have either been shot on the stage or suffered some sort of conniption.

I also turn in a fifteen page paper at that time, which I will spend the rest of the meantime proofing.

Thank you for your ETERNAL PATIENCE and UNFLINCHING UNDERSTANDING coupled with a COMPLETE LACK of NAGGING. I GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.

I will see you all ASAP.
And no, I can't commit changes from here.

The presentation went great, except that, as stated below, I was shot and killed. Shame, really. I may continue to work on ENIGMA as a ghost if conditions permit.

I hope you survive your speech. I would suggest not plainly reading your 15 pages, have some sort of summary in your mind.
And a timeline, if late, and you can't say it all, you need to know what you can skip and what not.

I seriously hope somebody explained that to you, otherwise, good luck, you may do just fine anyway. :D

er, I usually add the revision as soon as it appears on the svn; wasn't aware I was supposed to be testing if it works or not before adding it. At any rate, since you mentioned that, I've tested the revisions and updated the irc channel topic accordingly. revision 201 works. revisions 202-203 do not compile. If you checked out 202-203, either wait for a newer, working revision to update again, or revert to r201. Or, heaven forbid, try and fix the problems yourself.

11th:
Hah, no one ever tells me anything. But yes, I won't be doing that. I'm about to proof the paper with my partner and possibly rehearse something.

Ism:
I never explicitly told you to do so, as the thought never occurred to me until its anti-consequences made me want to rip out my hair. Rev 203 should work for people who do not need to include stdio explicitly to use it. If not, then yes, wait or revert. Or add #include <stdio.h> and if that doesn't fix it, I give up for now.

I hopped buildings, but am still far from home...

Don't worry Josh, I've been doing your job modding the IRC so you can focus more on your finals. :eng101:
However, I have my own english final due in less than 2 hours and I barely started it :eng99:

Well, while he's busy doing that, I committed r204, to fix the stdio.h stuff. It compiles for me and LGM starts up without incident.

See?
This is proof that Enigma can survive without Josh.
I'm modding the IRC, Ism is coding Enigma, and uh is anyone else doing anything?

Also, I just found out that I can pass in my 2 english projects later by using e-mail  :eng101:

As usual I'm feeling slightly more religious after today's turn of events.

I'm glad Ism fixed that problem.

Tomorrow holds calculus.

Thursday holds the worst test of all... Political science... God have mercy on my soul, &c.
