This blogging is new to me

Well I just discovered http://www.advogato.org after finishing up some long-overdue work for AudioSlack, my little piece of contribution to the Linux Audio arena. I actually found it while browsing some GNOME related stuff and blogs on Planet GNOME.

Want to prepare and update more packages this afternoon, particularly the kernel and other really neat apps.

Music matters

I have some ideas for what I think would make a deacent song that I may eventually write. I must sit down at the piano and play them through to see whether they in fact do work.

GNOME accessibility

Glad to say that Gnopernicus is really coming along well, particularly since version 0.7.1. I am really keen on jumping to Linux for all my day-to-day tasks, particularly web browsing, but since I can't seem to get Mozilla 1.6 running, I may have to wait a bit.

I used Garnome to build GNOME 2.6 RC1, and Mozilla crashes before it gets started. Maybe a rebuild of garnome tonight may be a possibility.

Windows and JAWS never co-operate

JAWS, the screen reader that I currently use for Windows is always being a pain. Even now while writing this blog, it doesn't always want to read the text in the text field. Come on Gnopernicus and GNOME, give me access to Mozilla damn 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.

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!
