Feeling the love

I'd just like to take a moment to give a hearty "Thank You" to all you Free Software developers out there. The whole Free Software Movement has really changed me - the people I've met, the code, the ideas. Keep up the good work.

Stuff

Packaged up Glows on a lark after a guy at work liked it. (Screen shot) The strange thing is that the screen shots that I have imply that the balls are clipped a little, while the naked eye says otherwise. *shrug*

LUG Ideas

  1. CodeFest - Drawing from the InstallFest idea, I think think that I'm going to try and organize my LUG into taking 6-8 hours some Saturday morning/afternoon and doing a "Code Fest". A pre-selected program (planned ahead of time with help from the developers of the same) will be worked upon by everyone in the LUG. Those that can code will work on coding certain assignments while those that cannot will work on improving/creating documentation. I think that it would be a nice boost for a project to get a lump chunk of work done by people and would serve as a learning experience for all of us. Must think more about this one.
  2. Parades! - During the summertime there are literally dozens of local parades just begging for groups to join. I think that the LUG can march and give out either free CDs (tres expensive) or coupons for Knoppix CDs that can be redeemed later at ... (Public Library?)

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.
