  • A friend of mine recently had his laptop stolen. Since he can't really afford a new one at the moment, he wants me to put Linux on an unused desktop machine for him. I'm planning to use knoppix to get information from lspci about the machine, then reboot with the debian installer. I have to get my new CD burner working first, though so I can make the CDs. Rebuilding my kernel now.

  • I heard about an aquantence of mine in Cleveland that was arrested at an anti-war protest. This is coming 2nd or 3rd hand, but supposedly she was pushed into the street by an undercover cop (how did she know it was an undercover cop?) then "body slammed" and arrested for blocking the street. She was handcuffed for over 24 hours, has a cracked wrist (from the cuffs?) and was left in the cell with a "crack addict". I don't know if any of this is true, but it is a very disturbing story.

    Good Weekend

  • Got to see J.C. Superstar live here in Columbus. Sebastian Bach was supposed to play J.C., but had an understudy instead. It was quite good, though.

  • Did some good work with walters and we are very close to finishing our little project. This is exciting.

    Last week

  • I found out that instead of said java project I'll be working on a Haskell project after all!

  • On Thursday, I helped a friend replace his car's starter. This was actually pretty fun, though I've never done anything this complex w/ a car before, he pretty much knew what he was doing.

    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.
