Busy Busy

I’ve been really busy lately. I worked basically all weekend at the warehouse in Ankeny and at home. I think we’re making pretty good progress with the order verification system. I expect to have it up and running fully by Wednesday or Thursday. There’s a few issues with scanning certain UPC codes and an few issues that can easily be fixed by modifying our export order process.

I plan to implement these fixes tomorrow. I’ll probably have to go to Ankeny tomorrow to program the flatbed scanner a little differently. Doing so should fix the issues with scanning those few UPCs. PSC’s help forum has been a great help.

As you can probably imagine, I didn’t get a chance to upgrade this machine to Slackware 10.1 this weekend. Hopefully I can do it next weekend. I’ll have a new graphics card for it by then. I ordered an MSI Geforce FX5200U-TD128. Direct Rendering (DRI) hasn’t been working in the new Xorg with my Radeon 7200. The shitty frame rates are no longer tolerable. I’ve been using the gateway PC I got from work more than my main PC due to it’s crap video performance. I did a lot of research before buying a card, and this one works very well with Slackware and Dropline Gnome. Mostly due to the great driver provided by Nvidia. I’m very excited to recieve it.

Well, now what?
