daniels:
Talk about pot calling kettle black! You FUD projects and people yourself, which does not lend you any credibility when whinging about hypothetical FUD spread about yourself.
Did you approach ElectricElf and ask him to clarify the situation? Did you even think that it was possible for whoever it was that blurted around second-hand information to be wrong, or out to cause trouble?
If you want people to respect you and take up your offers of help with projects, juvenile behaviour such as this is not going to win you hearts.
mwh: Well, from the documentation that came with the tibook (I had to hunt that one down :-), it says "If your battery runs low while you are working, you can put your PowerBook to sleep and replace the battery with a charged one. The internal backup battery provides enough power to maintain the contents of RAM for one minute while you change the battery."
So there you go ;-)

(Hi, rest of advogato! I've started fostering some open source OS X apps on freshmeat.net for people interested. So far there's Fire.app, and hopefully more to come.)
mwh, dobey: my tiBook gives me approximately three minutes (the documentation disagrees with itself as to whether it's one or three minutes, but I know it's more than one from experience!) to get my act together and find the power supply.

And fink is, indeed, cool.

Okay, this is sweet. I'm sitting in bed typing up this Advogato entry on my brand new titanium PowerBook G4 (800MHz/512M RAM). *drool*

OS X is so sweet. I have had a lot of people ask me if I am going to put linux on it, but no. No way. Mmm, nice OS X.

Okay, I'll get over it soon... nope.

Mmm.

freshmeat

Finally, the big project I was working through has been launched. With only 25% of the themes processed (lousy Window Maker having 2.6k themes) themes.freshmeat.net is finally up and open to the public. There are still hours of processing to go, so it'll be a looong haul, but it'll be worth it in the end. Thanks to scoop, Ray, Chris, and Jeff, and everyone else who helped out on the conversion :-)
amars: Join the "saving up for a G4 Powerbook" Club! You know you want to :-) *sighs as she looks at her bank balance*

In other, slightly weird news, I came home today with two Giant Burrowing Cockroaches. Australian natives, these guys are flightless and as big as your index finger. If your index finger is as long as mine :-) They're perfectly clean and non-disease-carrying and overall really cool pets. I have some initial photos up here and am currently finishing a short piece on looking after cockroaches in general.
No, they're not ew! I promise!

I didn't realise my certification meant so much amars - I must be a well-connected person or something. :-) 'tis all good.

Not much to say apart that I'm still coding up homepage and things - atm doing a page that lists some weird entries in my referer logs. Like google searches for "snow-blow".

Hmm.

Well, I've been pretty busy recently. Started uni this week, am doing two History and Philosophy of Science subjects, one Medieval History subject, and C++ and Object Oriented Systems. Quite strange for a major in Computing Science, really. Though I am aiming for a major in HPS as well.

Otherwise I've taken the editor to my homepage in which you can now sign a guestbook and look at the pretty blue colours. I've also been doing some kickarse design on an RPG website I host but it's not up yet, cos I'm not finished. You can see the old, outdated, crappy one here.

Otherwise I've offloaded my SGI O2 onto Jaq, who promises me he'll return it with quake 2 and a working compile environment. Good luck!

Well, I'm now also working for freshmeat.net which is quite funky. It's been a lot of fun so far, and the people are great too :-)

To all you FM contributers out there, please go and read Jeff Covey's fantastic article on How to Write A Great freshmeat Submission and I will thank you evermore for it. :-)

Eek! I've had so many requests for my photojournal code that I've had to tar it up and do a little setup script and stuff... it's all rather swamping! Anyway, there's stuff here if you want to download it :-) Web-based backend coming RSN!

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!
