Managed to get my website w3c compliant for both the html and the css. Think the w3c will feel violated by that, but hey, thats life.

The use of SVG and librsvg in games seems to be slowly growing. Learned today that the developer of Wormux is working on adding SVG support. This map map was made with Inkscape and will hopefully in future releases be rendered using librsvg inside Wormux.

Tried working a bit on gnome-themes-extras today. But I am not able to get make dist working anymore. I am getting messages like this
tar: gnome-themes-extras-0.8.0/Gorilla/icons/scalable/mimetypes/gnome-mime-application-x-gnome-app-info.svg: file name is too long (max 99); not dumped
If anyone have a clue about it please mail me on uraeus-gnome-org. I am pretty sure it is a change in some underlying system as the g-t-e package has not changed its structure recently.

Daniel linked to a fun little hack in his blog today.

Zaheer got Flumotion streaming from his Mosque yesterday. So you can now get your weekly dosage of Islam in Ogg Theora/Vorbis format. Nice to see people being able to use the work we do at Fluendo to offer services like this to their local community. (disclaimer: I am still an atheist :)
