As if my recently renewed addiction to mudding weren't enough to consume my time entirely, I'm writing this diary entry as I install EverQuest. In spite of having worked on UO for nearly two years, I've actually never played EQ! I guess I'm more of a Nethacker.

Once again rode the San Diego coaster to work this morning. This is truly the best way to commute. It takes only slightly longer than driving myself, and I can read, or watch as beautiful, scenic ocean view after beautiful, scenic ocean view pass by.

I'm buying my VW Jetta Jazz after leasing it. I know you're not supposed to buy after leasing, but I like the car... a lot. Oh well.

I really wanted to go to the O'Reilly open source convention here in San Diego this year, but it was too expensive. I must save up to go to some Linux convention or other next year... (yeah, that'll happen :)

Ahhh, well. Back to work. (or playing EQ)

This is my first diary entry..... though I've been following the Linux effort for a while. I am not much of an open source developer, as I spend most of my time doing proprietary code for Massively Multiplayer Online Games, such as Ultima Online and Sovereign. So, mostly I lurk.

Some tremendously cool projects you already know about, that are currently interesting to me:

  • SDL rules for writing game front-ends. As I mostly work on game server code, I like toying with SDL as a break from my usual. Nothing worth sharing yet, though.
  • Guile is a tremendously cool extension utility/language. If you're wondering about extending your application with a scripting language, check Guile out, it's a great head-start, and being actively maintained.
  • Crystal Space is coming along very nicely!
  • Evolution is very useable already... Ximian are doing great things.
  • Mozilla rocks. Although, its form cut and paste is really irritating today. I like the nightly builds too much, perhaps.

Well, that's it for now... back to work!

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!
