Didn't go to church today. My friend never came to pick me up. That's the problem with not having a car, you never know if your going to be stranded. Oh well, at least I'm here and ready to get some stuff done today. Time to fine up the gimp, Synedit, a browser and get going.

Source Forge is still not letting me log in!!! I don't want to bite the hand that feeds me but, it's not feeding... Sourceforge has all these supposed super servers and they can't get a simple thing like web- based login working? What's wrong with them? Is it my side? Do I have to use telnet just to log-in? No point to all this maddness. It's stuff like this that makes more projects just kinda dwindle away.I'm staying strong though.

Well. Now I have a project idea, now all I need is a name.

The Name:System 17

System 7 would be better but, it would have copyright issues with Apple. Now how to type it. (By the way these are my thoughts in natural streams, lightly formated for syntax)

System17-Pretty cool with no space. Kinda distinctive but, kinda overdone.

system17-Liking the lowercase but, somehow, it doesn't quite work for me with the no space.

system 17- Lowercase works. But........... No.

System 17-Seems like some big important project.

System17. Good enough. Now all we need is a website and some content. (and sourceforge's login to come back online.)

Alternative Name: Formfactor

This is probably taken somewhere on the net. But, it's such a sweet name.

Another Possible Variation: Formfactor5

I just had the idea of a core team of people known as formfactor. I'd be like formfactor1, though I like formfactor5 better. What's up with me and names with sur-numbers? Hmm. I just kinda like them.

I'm babbling on Advogato when I should be making a website or getting content or even doing my schoolwork...

If anyone works at sourceforge or knows someone or anything to get the login working (it's been busted for 2 days now) could you tell them about it? It would be helpful.

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.
