The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Sick all day
I went to bed last night with every intention of resuming work on my Summer of Code project today. I had worked on it from about the time I got up, 10 or 11 am, until about 10 or 11 pm. Apparently my body had other intentions. I got to sleep about 2 am and first woke up around 7 am. I was so groggy I just used the bathroom and went back to sleep.

I woke up again around 10 or 11 am with my back killing me, most of my muscles as sore as can be, my stomach feeling like I ate something it didn't like, and my throat feeling raw and in pain every time I swallowed. The throat is probably due to the fan being on and it drying out. The back is probably due to the way I slept (with my feet off the side of the air mattress). I don't know why my muscles are sore and tense or what's wrong with my stomach.

I ate half of an apple and half a dozen saltine crackers, as that's all I felt like I could eat. After my sister came home much later I had a helping of cream of wheat (we're out of milk now) and made a mess while at it. This is the third time I've made cream of wheat and every time I make it it boils over and everywhere before it is done cooking. My sister threw a bunch of stuff together (mixed vegetables, cream of celery, pieces of cut up chicken, etc) and put it over rice. I had almost an entire plate of that and then took a nap. I felt a lot better after the nap, although I still don't feel good yet.

I think I mentioned it once or twice before and after getting accepted, but I haven't actually talked about it much. I don't want to seem full of it just for getting accepted.

My project is for Gallery (web based photo album organizer) to write a notification module. From the list of ideas:
Notification Module
An active Gallery 2 site can have numerous events occur over time (new photos are added, new comments are added, new members register, etc.). A generic e-mail/notification module that lets other modules use it for sending e-mail when an event occurs would be a welcome feature.
Deliverable: New G2 module that implements e-mail/notification that can be used by other G2 modules.

It sounds fairly easy, but I can't just hack on something and add it in. I have to use their existing infrastructure to make it work and there is a very steep learning curve there. The documentation has been very lacking for new coders so it has been a daunting task for me to understand the basics.

Gallery is in PHP.

What I'm doing is providing a central management module for notification events (add comment, add photo, etc) and methods (notify by email, rss feed, SMS, etc). It won't actually provide any events or methods, though; just a way for other modules to add them. From there other modules can register new events or methods and the central module will handle the configuration. I'll make a module to provide the email notification method as well as common Gallery events.
