So I'm back from London && ApacheCon, back in San-Fran.

I missed 2 important events while being gone.

  1. The Huskers lost!!!
  2. The Playstation 2 was released, and I didn't get one.. :-(

The conference was interesting. There were a number of good talks -- one thing that I was particularly interested in was the Subversion project. I talked a bit with gstein about it, and a lot of the features sound pretty sweet. The only thing I am a bit nervous about is all this use of the webserver. It seems that the webserver is turning into a monolithic piece of equipment -- kinda a cureall. I'll leave it at that.

Feedback about mod_snake was positive. gstein proposed a few changes which I will have to consider. I think steam is picking up for Python projects related to the Web.

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.
