Well, here we are, my first Advogato diary entry. Didn't have a good place to put my rambling thoughts before, so this might as well become it.

My webserver Artoo is a little bit under the weather due to cracker attempts, so my homepage is currently unavailable. Too bad, I think I'm going to put it up on a server someplace else where they have an admin that has the time to apply the latest patches and fix any security holes and so on.

I'm employed at Chalmers Medialab as a free software programmer during the summer--great. Currently toying with the following:

  • Redesigning and rewriting 3Dwm from scratch. The new version is intended to be "full-strength" and built from the ground up to be robust and flexible.

  • Starting work on the 3D parts of the Berlin project, currently mainly trying to do the low-level stuff and looking at possible architectural changes that may be needed.

  • Co-developing a PHP-based on-line dictonary web application with support for on-line contribution.

Enough, it's time to go back to grokking the Berlin source...

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!
