Well, I am in the painstaking process of trying to port PrBooM to Panther. I am 65-77% sure I can come up with something that works by the beginning of January. I should learn SDL programming, but I don't think the authors are using that. Also, two key factors in development motivation are as follows:

  • How many people actually want to see a carbon port?

    AND

  • Is there a carbon port in existance?

    I will work on it as I get days off from work. I work 8 - 18 hours a week at work, and my job doesn't mind working on code outside of work, but they are soon going to pass a new rule and I may have to sign something, if worse comes to worse and you all want to see a carbon port, I can and will quit my job.

    I know I know, "DAMN STARVING PROGRAMMERS!" :-D

  • Not much to report. Playing some Unreal Tournamanet 2003 and learning to make a cool website. Right now my homepage is cool, but it is mediocre. I need something with bite.

    Well, some interesting news. Jabber Dot Org has been having difficulties, at least what I can see through Psi. Also, there is an effort starting, to port Debian to the PPC 64-bit G5s. *SWOON*

    Just doing my second portupgrade on FBSD 4.9. I tried it on 5.1 and the kernel segfaulted. It looks like it's going to work. it was probably because 5.1 did NOT like my hardware.

    Just heard I am going to have an interview for a job, which will remain unnamed because it's kind of lame. However, school is almost out, and I am going to really read the programming books I have and take a break from school. I don't know if I want to learn Python or Perl.

    Oh hey! FreeBSD 4.9 was released on the 29th? No one told me. Well, it's installed on my box. W00t?

    WOW! I am totally enthralled in Unix and Linux. I have Windows 2000 for gaming purposes and my Half-Life fix, and I have Debian, and FreeBSD, but BSD keeps having a kernel panic when I portsupgrade on 4.8, 4.9RC3 and 5.1. If anyone knows what the deal is, BY ALL MEANS email me!!! :-)

    WOW! It's been a long time. I made some people mad, learned how to program and I am still attending school.

    Not much happened, I have two blogs now.

    Well, I am getting off of FreeNode. I can't get any help from anyone. I have to figure out stuff on my own. I can't get help from tightasses like sourdough on #debianppc, or ChipX86 in #gaim. These people seriously don't get out. And they try so hard to stick up for themselves, by banning someone who calls them on it. I hope Advogato doesn't bar my access because of my opinion of FreeNode, it is just an opinion.

    Someone said (sourdough) who by the way is a dumbass debian developer, who told me XFree86 4.2 didn't support my video card. He was right, I had to switch to 4.3.

    The fact that OPN AKA FreeNode is full of idlers most of the time and no helpers is sad. Oh! Did I mention tight asses? :-F

    Yeah, he banned me for trolling, which I wasn't. Funny that's what EvilDennisR said in #gaim.

    Yes, FreeNode is bad about catering to people with no life.

    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.
