Happiness is geek toys
Only about one week left before my new laptop is supposed to arrive: a ThinkPad T21, 20GB, DVD. I took advantage of a special 'double the base memory for free' offer; the base memory was 128MB, and I ordered an additional 256MB, so now the total is 512MB. Unfortunately, there are only two memory slots, and apparently I am going to receive one 256MB DIMM and two 128MB DIMMs. Anyone want to trade a 256MB for two 128MBs? :-)

Making excellent progress on my Apache Module Development in C book. Funny thing; it was going very slowly when I was working on it with rbb, but when he got fed up with the slow pace and dropped out, I got motivated. I guess I am just not a good collaborator when it comes to writing..

Progress is also being made on my Apache Cookbook (for O'Reilly), but it is slow. Every time I think I have a handle on everything I want to include on a particular topic, two or three more crop up. I need to put a stake in the ground, before Nat (my editor) puts one in my heart..

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.
