I got langmast back to the way I had it before, only now in GTK-- (config file w/ checkboxes to modify.) Okay, so it's a tad bit more advanced in development now (creates tab in notebook for each language in config.) I ran into a little jam, but hopefully I can get it out of the way by monday. I haven't been programming for a while cause recently I've been extra lazy. I set up a simple perl script to display text files in a textarea so I can edit files from school. The java ssh app screws up the vi session so badly I can hardly stand it. Now all I gotta do is bug my bro to install gtk-- so I can start developing. Humm, but I can't actually RUN it from school. >Stupid though< I'll modify the vnc server (vnc no like firewall) so it displays a single window as a gif w/ an imagemap. Clicking on the imagemap makes the xserver click there on the x app and reload the page w/ the results. Text could be entered with a small input form. hur hur hur, boy I have some stupid ideas. Maybe though...maybe.

I recently switched back to WindowMaker from E, and this time I'm accepting the dock (but not the clip.) Becuse I'm using the dock I have to rewrite a modem control app I wrote a while back. Most of the code was ripped from Beej's Network Guide, but it does the trick. I have a crappy little 486 dial on demand server and I wrote a set of apps to turn on and off the modem w/o telneting in using UDP. It's very insecure, so if you feel the urge to trash the system look around magpage.com for a box called rooter. Yep, I have a dynamic IP, so I pretty confident you can't do much. Maybe I'll package the whole system so lazy people and non-programmers can have the luxury of not logging in.

I'm reworking my webpage. Right now there's nothing, just a stupid coverpage. I dunno, should I go ultra-graphical or keep w/ the simplicity. Ohh well, I guess it depends on what I want to put on the page (programs I made for sharing and braging, and that's as far as I got.) Ohh well.

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.
