Okay, I haven't been doing much since I've been going back to school. I've been swamped with homework and school just leaves me too wasted to program. :) It seems my sleeping habits need readjustment and that means no caffeine after school. :( I actually did manage to bang out two programs before school, Alarm and Pig. Alarm is usable, but for some reason the eSound process leaves a core file behind. Can someone fix that for me? Both programs were made for the heck of it, (but I acutally use alarm to remind myslef that the Invisible Man is playing on SCI-FI! Too bad I forgot to set an alarm yesterday.) I've decided NOT to make a FreeBSD ports manager because the fatures that I'd put in it were already provided w/ console commands, so making it would only be academic. I'm looking for programming projects peoples! Help me fight the boredom! For now I'll just be working on my webpage and maybe to a regular article on stuff I see in the news. *shrug*

My preliminary webpage is up (see url above.) I'm starting to learn GTK+ so I can possibly create a ports manager for FreeBSD. Hopefully I won't get bored or forget about it before I start. :)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
