Quite an eventful weekend. Terrible news about Mark Finlay, who has passed away. Obviously battling (and hacking) to the very end, his illness never showed on IRC and the mailing lists. My promise to him to implement gnome-scan has been renewed -- the mockups hashed out on his blog were looking very promising.
My grandmother went to hospital last week with pluracy and an irregular heartbeat. Outlook is good, but having a nasty cough I thought it would be best not to visit her just yet.
Saturday I played with Thomas's audio profiles for a while, creating a combobox listing all available profiles. Thomas rewrote it on Sunday, so hopefully I'll be able to put it into Sound Juicer shortly. This will entail a rewrite of SjExtractor, but it has been needed for a long time. The same rewrite will allow the gnome-vfs method to be a far cleaner patch, and satisfy my problems with the user interface.
Finally, Mr. Kilroy-Silk, apart from having a silly surname, is also a fool.

Contact Lookup Applet 0.4
I've now committed the API changes to evolution-data-server, so can finally do a new release of this applet. Featuring display of video conferencing URL, complete asyncronous lookup and demonstrates a rather annoying bug in gnome-panel 2.5.
If you run GNOME 2.5, you will not be able to focus the text area by simply clicking. Alt-click instead to focus the applet, and then click to focus the text area. Hopefully Mark McLoughlin can figure out a way to fix this before 2.6 is released...
