Haven't updated since July... Seems its about time.

Working from home these days. FreeBSD 5.x CURRENT is a bit of a mess these days. Matt Dillon forked 4.8 and made dragonflyBSD and I must say I find it somewhat refreshing. Too bad I can't run it yet. My hardware is far too new. When my new G5 comes [just shipped tonight] I hope I will be able to get FBSD on the old G4 :) I realize it doesn't do "release" yet but I am hoping to find some time to work on it.

Other than that these days.. just hackin around with Cocoa and Applescript in my spare time

Took some time out to get familiar with Haskell and have been playing around with Lisp too recently. There are a lot of different perspectives one can pick up from learning a new programming language. I suggest you try it... many idioms out there that may lend themselves to solutions you have in mind.

Sometimes open source people aren't open minded enough... C++ is treated like a red-headed stepchild in spite of the fact that very good things have been done with the subset of it that is commonly implemented :).

Nothing like rambling to one's self on one of the older public blog sites :)

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!
