Script (Perl)

Finished up 1.0b6 of Script (Perl), because TTW is more fun. Spent the evening playing with actual Perl code in Zope. Integration between Perl and Zope still has rough edges. Why doesn't %REQUEST = %{$self->{'REQUEST'}} work for instance? There's no bindings for Perl Scripts either. Harumph. The external Perl Methods work good though. Hopefully we can get some good use out of those at work. Maybe I can figure out this code enough that I can get the scripts working better. Maybe I should just code more in Python. It's mostly a better language anyways ... not as ugly. Sometimes ugly is good.

"It's all good."

Spent the morning playing with my Eterms. Put in some tinting and shading and nice backgrounds. Got a couple Eterms that are full screen now - I can Ctrl-P between terms and it's just like changing the desktop background. Kind of fun.

VA Linux and flowers: this makes a nice Eterm background.

Friday Night

I'm not even going to go into detail about Friday night. It was just too much. The less said about Friday night, the better. It was fun though. I want my Saturday back.

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.
