So after OneTel collapsed and I lost my job, I looked around
for something that would do the ol' rent paying; living
thing... I now am working as a sysadmin and having a great
time working out iptables (I know ipchains, so iptables was
a new adventure and time to unlearn lots of bad habits or
something ;-) and policy routing.
Yay. So now I have a webserver on the 'net that I can call my own. *awww*
This weekend has been rather relaxing; I rebooted into windows (ergh, yuk, especially when it decided to reinstall all my motherboard settings) to play Black and White; in which I managed to kick some serious butt. I like being a god, even if I seem to be getting evil.
Updated my homepage! I tried to get rid of as many 404s as I could be bothered at the time (mainly because of potential employers), so I think the only 404s left are on my programming page (uni and reviews or something). So I'll fix them eventually (when I have something to write. Yes.).
I guess that's it for the time being. Adios!
So I did the whole Agenda talk thing; it's up on my homepage
My talk slides are there, as is my port of DadaDodo.
So! I'm currently doing my Agenda talk for SLUG and I've also finally
ported something to the Agenda!
It's DadaDodo, a markov sentence generator that
"analyses texts for word probabilities, and then generates random sentences based on that. Sometimes these sentences are nonsense; but sometimes they cut right through to the heart of the matter, and reveal hidden meanings."
according to its writer, Jamie Zawinski.
I should probably email him to let him know this, but all it took was a simple recompile :-)
I'll put it up on my homepage when I've finished this damned talk! Updates will come.
I'm getting the journal code to the point where I could
consider releasing it (soon - there are still a bunch of
features I want to put in before the release). I get the
feeling it will take a little bit of knowhow to get it
looking the way you want it, but in future releases I think
I'll endeavour to get it so that the masses can use it :-)
Some people have already asked me for the code, so I guess
it must be pretty to look at ;-) (the page, not the code...
that's another thing I have to fix up :-)
My friend Joel I think will be helping me out with some css-es that he's written for it, perhaps that will help the whole usability process.
Don't forget that you can read more about my endeavours at my home page.
Well, this is my Advogato page. My real diary you can access
I'm currently working on cross-compiling some fun things for my Agenda PDA as well as writing some open source journal code (see my home page!) which is due to be released shortly.
Otherwise I work/uni by day and do other stuff by night. Occasionally you might see me around #slug on irc.openprojects.net.
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.
