Got the announcement from RoUS that registration for ApacheCon 2001 was online. So I popped open the registration page, only to see.. the price. My God, was it that much last year? Of course, I don't remember last year's full price, because I went as a student then. $1300. That is a great deal of money for a relatively poor coder. (As it turns out, it was cheaper last year)

So, despite all the fun I had last year in Orlando, I think I'll have to pass on this one. Maybe next year I'll be a student again. Or, maybe the O'Reilly Open Source one will be cheaper. Who knows.


It's nice to get feedback on your projects. I've gotten a dozen or so pats on the back for php_imlib over the last few months, but January saw two people package RPMs for me, one of whom sent a patch against one of the PHP classes today. So that was pretty cool. Still need to look over the RPMs, then I'll put some links on the website. I also noticed, by way of referer logs, that the Apache Toolbox had added php_imlib to their todo list. It was later downgraded to 'doubtful'. Alas. :)


Submitted a short (1388 byte, 15 line) patch to raph to add the <proj> tag to advogato. It turned out to be a very simple thing to add, given the way the custom tag parsing is done.
