Night.

yakk: Well, this is a public diary, but it's as good as private -- no one reads it anyway. Or at least no one comments on it. It's where I put most of the non-code-related stuff.

Tengo que hacer una presentación al 26 de julio, pero no le trabajé mucho. (If I messed that up, let me know, OK?)
literature
Still haven't finished the poem I started earlier....

I don't get into poetic moods often. It's a delicate balance... I have to be awake enough to not write stupid crap, but tired enough not to think everything I write is stupid crap. Sadly, most of the time, by the time I'm tired enough to overcome my inhibitions I'm too tired to write.

Usually, the result of one of these creative bursts is waking up the next morning and saying, "What was I on when I wrote this?"

coding
I fixed the "input not UTF-8" warning in ithought, by making the input UTF-8, using the isolat1ToUTF8() function in libxml2. Then I realized I had to change it back. Then I realized it doesn't null terminate its result. So I had to use g_malloc0() instead of g_malloc().

ithought development has been kinda dead recently... this seems to be the first change in a long while.

CD: Blue Man Group - Audio
T-shirt: None
Mood: Fried

(Apparently, the change to ithought breaks some modules. I'm working on it.)

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.
