Oh happiness! Started my embedded systems class at UC Davis today, gotta admit I've been looking forward to getting back into some hardware design after the last 6 months of software only work. Looks like it's MIPS-centric stuff, which is fine with me...

Not that I'm done with SourceForge... I really want to fix themes, and maybe add a theme manager. But for the next 6 months, school's gotta come first.

Now if I could only remember where I put that textbook...

More SourceForge changes... The task manager's finally gotten it's email notification, but now it's time to add the mass update functionality Quentin's been enjoying with the support manager (nothing like being able to close 15 RTFMs from one page, especially over Australia's 14.4, er, slower connection to the outside world...).

Modifying the SourceForge 2.0 tarball for custom installs is turning out to be a real pain, simply because we were kind of rushed to get the source out there after LinuxWorld... Would have loved to get in there and clean up that eyesore that is themeing. Ah well, V1.0s are almost never finished in the eyes of the programmer. *Sigh*

Pondering writing an installer for SourceForge in PERL using curses bindings. Need to look into it further, when I get the time. Which puts it on track for release in June 2031...

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!
