The graduation went well enough. I got to the University Arena early and met in the back to get ready, and get my name card filled out. I managed to get into the right line 15 minutes before the ceremony (the College of Arts and Sciences had a huge sign next to their hallway which dumps right into the meeting room, whereas you had to go through a few unmarked doors to get to my College’s line).
After that, I got stand up for 10 minutes, then sit down for another 20 listening to speech after speech, after which our row got up to get our fake diplomas. We then sat down for another hour and a half or so, and the ceremony was finally over and we were able to go.
We went to Olive Garden to eat after waiting a half hour for my sister-in-law’s boyfriend to come home from work. Once at the Olive Garden, we had to wait another 45 minutes or so just to get inside the restaurant. The food and service was both excellent however, at a nice price point, so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much.
There was still a lot of time left in the night, so my sister-in-law and her boyfriend accompanied me and my wife home. There we played Trivial Pursuit, and I finally won after 3 or 4 hours. On that note, Trivial Pursuit isn’t my favorite game ever. After that we played Donkey Konga, which was so fun that our guests didn’t leave until around 5:30 in the morning.
Since then I’ve tried out the updated gstreamer plugin by Chris Lee, and it now works magnificently. So I’m now working on getting SPC support for taglib so that I can play SPCs in JuK. I’ll let you all know when that happens.
In the meantime I’ve finally made another release of kdecvs-build to bring the release version up-to-date with the CVS version.
