19:29 whiteknight WHAT I DID: Stymied by test failures on various platforms. No progress. EOR
19:30 cotto It appears to be that time.
19:32 whiteknight hello
19:32 benabik o/
19:33 benabik Progress has been very slow due to small child, lack of sleep, and wrist injury.  :-(
19:34 whiteknight all those things were expected
19:35 benabik Wrist injury, not so much.  Been off the computer for a few days.
19:35 benabik Although I will admit the new dictation in Mountain Lion has made it easier to be on IRC.
19:37 cotto Are there any big questions or concerns this week?
19:38 whiteknight none from me
19:39 benabik Keys are too magical.  Writing tests involving them is difficult.
19:39 cotto seriously
19:40 cotto For what they do the code is almost reasonable if you squint right.  Parrot expects a lot of magic from them.
19:41 benabik It's difficult to manipulate them directly, really.  Part of it is just that no current language lets me pass a key into opcodes directly.
19:43 benabik But really this is just complaining.  I'll work around it.
19:47 benabik Also: there's a very loud cricket in here!  Arg!
