Not been hacking a lot as of late, with my b-day and all... Today's my first sister's b-day.. she's not hooked to the Internet, but here goes my happy birthday, Cristina! :-)

Been working on a revision on my self-defense sprays for the Journal of Non-lethal Combatives, I hope next submission will be closest to the last one...

Nants is gonna have to wait for a while, as I'm gonna start a new project and try to finish it this time... Space Realms hasn't gone too far, actually has not gone, stop. This will be different, more strategy oriented toward space battles... I already have an interested programmer (actually one of my co-workers) which is good, as I started yesterday late night :-)

Core will be in Perl 5, which is cool for this, then the GUI will be GTK+ or some other, we'll see when it's the time... Actually GUI independence is a part of the overall design phylosophy... As soon as there's more than shiptypes, a pic of ships silouettes and a skeleton base Ship class, we'll post it to the Net for collaborators... GPL, btw...

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!
