Recent blog entries for Urs

Have been offline here for almost ten years. Lot's of things changed - Advogato stayed alive. Amazing.

Still blogging on http://circle.ch/blog/. There are some updates I did, to have the blog and the wiki working interactively.

Well, just recently I rebuilt my homepage on circle.ch [1] and moved a blogging system called b2 onto it. I am quite happy with it.

Having had a speech about PHP-GTK at the International PHP Conference in Frankfurt [1] last October, I have had less time to work with PHP-GTK past few month. Since Alan Knowles [2] is now working on a GUI frontent for handling PEAR packages, I got the kick again.

Having written a script [3] yeasterday, that upgrades PHP, PHP-GTK and specific PEAR packages I will try out the new PEAR GUI installer as soon as possible on Windows.

I made myself more clever about diffs of files today. PHP will probably help me to handle the problems to solve. I am heading for an "agent" to get the difference of file- contents. Providing content on the Internet is one thing. But I think providing the links to these contents and giving information on updates is another. To me the latter is more interesting. So, I hope to tell more about this later on.

What a happy day! I just got access to advogato to share some of my thoughts with you. Already for a pretty while, I have been following advogato-articles and others personal diaries and always got some new ideas, on what is going on on this planet; technically, sophistically etc. etc. It is good to be here.

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.
